Nissan has recently taken the virtual covers off the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, a 2+2 virtual supercar developed exclusively for the PlayStation-only Gran Turismo 6 racing game.
Created by a team of young designers at Nissan Design Europe, in London, England, the model was considered to have so much potential that it has benefited from input from an advanced engineering team based at Nissan Technical Centre in Atsugi, Japan. As a result, Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo gives hints as to how a performance Nissan could look like in the future.
If this concept really does provide a glimpse into Nissan’s future design language, we shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out. We heard that the new GT-R is under development, and Nissan has revealed that it will use hybrid power.
The powertrain is likely to be a development of the existing 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 with an electrical F1-style KERS boost system, developed in conjunction with Williams F1 as part of a road car engineering collaboration signed last summer.
The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo is set to make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed at the end of this month, while the virtual concept will be available for download from July 2014.
