Lamborghini has unveiled the V12 Vision Gran Turismo concept for the Gran Turismo game and the manufacturer will not be unveiling a physical prototype of the same. However, expecting is not being greedy at all.
Lamborghini has revealed some of the most ferocious-looking concepts in the past, but they all were tangible in real life. The latest one, however, isn’t. This time, Lamborghini has unveiled a fiercely designed V12 Gran Turismo Concept for Gran Turismo racing videogame.
Lamborghini Reveals V12 Vision Gran Turismo Concept
The V12 Gran Turismo Concept was unveiled during the final championship of Gran Turismo in Monte Carlo. The reveal is only a digital exercise, as Lamborghini has announced that a physical full-scale prototype would not be made. Still, expecting one would not be wrong, since Lamborghini is known for outrageous concept cars making their way into production! The digital car would be made available to the gamers on the game in Spring 2020.
The single-seat V12 Gran Turismo concept is styled the most outlandish way, and the credit for the job goes to Lamborghini Centro Stile, based in Sant’Agata, Bolognese, Italy. As claimed by Lamborghini, the manufacturer had pursued the job in a similar fashion as it would do for a real-life car. With a heavy infusion of futuristic approach coupled with a calculation for aerodynamics, the V12 Gran Turismo Concept is the most advanced Lamborghini car ever designed. The streamlined bodywork and outboard wheels aid the car with wind-cheating aerodynamics and let it make the best of its 820PS V12 hybrid powertrain.
The car gets a fancy steering wheel and a fancier way to access the cockpit, through the windshield
As for its interior, the car has just one seat, but what’s exciting is the way the driver gets access and controls of the car. The access to the cockpit is provided from the windshield, which opens like a jet fighter’s cockpit, and controls to the driver are provided by a top-less steering wheel, with all information displayed on the windscreen itself. Lamborghini appreciated the single-seater design, quoting it draws a “historic Lamborghini design DNA, expanding the potential of the design language in a futuristic way”. The sad part about this concept is that it won’t get to production form, as this project was treated more a testing ground for the designer to make the best out of their skills on a blank canvas.
