Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo displayed at launch of new Grand Turismo Sport game in London
OREANDA-NEWS. May 23, 2016. Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo was on display at the Copper Box in Olympic Park, London, during the launch of a new game, Grand Turismo Sport.
Displayed alongside seven other full-size concept cars, the largest ever gathering of GT concept vision cars in one place, the vehicle provides a visualization of what a high performance Nissan could look like in the future.
The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo began life as dream project for young Nissan designers who were given free rein to create the perfect supercar for their own Gran Turismo fantasy garage.
But the design from a team at Nissan Design Europe – based in London, England – was seen to have so much potential that it has benefited from input from an engineering team based in Japan.
Adapting design cues from current Nissan performance models, it was created from scratch using the latest digital design tools: The first – and to date only – physical representation of the car is the actual concept model.In 1997, Gran Turismo (GT) introduced to the world the ability to realistically recreate automobiles in 3DCG and allow gamers to virtually experience them on their home consoles. Since then, the GT series has recorded a total of 76.74 million copies (*), breaking records and winning awards on the way. On November 15, the makers of GT will take the title to the next level with the release of Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation®4 console, where it will promote the rebirth of motorsports with its partnership with the F?d?ration Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).
