Lamborghini Enters V12 Vision Gran Turismo into GT Sport on PS4
Barely a month has passed since Jaguar entered their Gran Turismo Coupé into the digital realm, Lamborghini has stepped into the ring with their V12 Vision Gran Turismo. This virtual concept car will be available for players of the Playstation 4 game Gran Turismo Sport in spring of 2020.
The Lamborghini V12 Vision GT was designed at Centro Stile, the company’s in-house design centre. The engine statistics and performance figures that form the basis of this car comes from the Sián FKP 37. That’s their 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine with a 48V electric motor which produces 807hp.
Here’s the press release with more details.
Automobili Lamborghini presents its new concept car, the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo, ahead of the World Finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships taking place in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The Lambo V12 Vision GT is a highly visionary concept, emphasizing ‘fun to drive’ within the digital environment of the iconic racing game Gran Turismo Sport for Sony PlayStation 4, where it will be virtually available from spring 2020.
The Lambo V12 Vision GT features a very exciting design produced by Lamborghini Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It is a single seater, which in its virtual form uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. The design builds on historic Lamborghini design DNA, expanding the potential of the design language in a very futuristic way. Focused on the single center line, the iconic silhouette of all Lamborghini models, it emphasizes a single seater layout conceived for a racing game where a passenger is not needed. The concept car’s powerful overall design is dedicated to sophisticated aerodynamics. A large wing housing a significant Y-taillight dominates the rear. All elements are designed as high performance surfaces, integrating design and aerodynamics. The main body is disconnected from the fenders, and the hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows is inspired by the Lamborghini Marzal from 1968. The Lambo V12 Vision GT uses the typical Lamborghini Y-signature for both front lights and rear lights. A visionary concept requires an interior design ahead of its time. The driver enters the cabin like a jetfighter pilot, from the front of the car. The main driving controls are located within the futuristic steering wheel and all driver information is projected virtually in front of the driver.
