McLaren reveals virtual concept auto for Gran Turismo Sport

1134bhp Virtual Mc Laren concept to make video game debut

1134bhp Virtual Mc Laren concept to make video game debut

How this would work in real life is of course a moot point, as we very much doubt the Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo will ever make it to production.

Gran Turismo Sport will be available from October 17, with the McLaren Vision Gran Turismo joining other featured models from the company, including the 650S coupe and 650S GT3 race auto, along with various other stunning Vision Gran Turismo concepts from manufacturers like Bugatti, Infiniti, Peugeot and Volkswagen. This provides all-wheel drive and more notably, a system output of 1,150 PS and 1,275 Nm of torque. Technology called Integrated Active Aero opens and closes tiny aperture covers around air inlets on key surfaces, generating drag and downforce through corners - and cutting it out on the straights.

Centrally-mounted carbon-ceramic brakes help to reduce unsprung mass, and the driver is able to monitor brake temperatures when racing.

It has a central driving position - nothing new there, especially for a McLaren - but more innovatively, it's also a prone position, with the driver lying on their front. "It puts the driver absolutely at the centre of the action, delivering a sensory overload with incredible sound and awe-inspiring acceleration", said Rob Melville, design director for McLaren Automotive.

The McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo came in response to calls for unique, visionary GT cars by Gran Turismo creator, Kazunori Yamauchi.

"I created the Vision Gran Turismo project to give auto manufacturers the opportunity to design something that has all of the characteristics of their brand, and will live on as a playable vehicle in Gran Turismo".

The design form of the McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo follows its function, meaning every single line and detail has a goal. "Numerous cars have become legendary in their own right, continuing to shine for years and attracting players from different eras".

As the name suggests, this vehicle was designed and created for the upcoming video game Gran Turismo Sport (releasing on October 17, 2017).

The futuristic design you see here has some function to it, with McLaren claiming every single line and detail has a objective.
