The BMW Vision Gran Turismo.

A new virtual race car, the BMW Vision Gran Turismo, takes to the racetrack in Gran Turismo®6, the acclaimed racing title available exclusively on PlayStation®3.

To mark the game’s 15th anniversary last year, Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo® creator and president of Polyphony Digital Inc., invited leading automobile manufacturers to contribute to the successful game series. Design departments were called upon to look into the future and share their ground-breaking concept models with the gaming community.  “I was eagerly awaiting what kind of car the people at BMW would come up with. The resulting Vision GT car was a sports car that was so clearly BMW, that really shows the DNA of BMW," said Yamauchi.

"The development of the BMW Vision Gran Turismo combines our many years of motorsports experience with signature BMW design," added Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Brand Communication BMW, BMW i, BMW M.

Following in the tradition of the successful BMW touring cars of the 1970s, the BMW design team has created an uncompromising road racer for the modern era. Crisp proportions and a dynamic silhouette give the BMW Vision Gran Turismo the appearance of speed, even standing still.

Front and rear spoilers ensure optimum down-force, while all air conduction elements reduce drag and lower the vehicle’s total weight through the use of carbon fibre.

The paint finish in BMW M colours traces the flow of the airstream, recalling BMW Motorsports successes.

Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles.

Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles said: “The BMW Vision GT is pure BMW sportiness and dynamics. It’s a precise driving machine engineered and designed to race and win.”

The technology in the virtual BMW Vision Gran Turismo is just as impressive as its uncompromising design. A powerful virtual three-litre six-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology developed by BMW M GmbH delivers a maximum power of 404 kW/549 hp between 6,200 min-1 and 7,300 min-1. Its peak torque of 680 Nm is developed at just 1,900 rpm. A sequential six-speed transmission, operated by gearshift paddles on the steering wheel, distributes engine power to the driven rear axle. The outstanding performance characteristics of the BMW Vision Gran Turismo, which weighs only 1,180 kilograms, include perfect 50:50 axle load distribution.

The BMW Vision Gran Turismo will be integrated into the new Gran Turismo® 6 game through online update.
