Kazunori Yamauchi, the man behind the Vision Gran Turismo 6, asked automakers to design a car specifically to commemorate the game’s 15th anniversary.
The most recent car to feature in the game is the new Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo, a concept designed by French engineers, has a monolithic silhouette sculpted to sweep aside air resistance, standing just 104 cm (41 inches) tall, with the notable absence of nearly any aerodynamic features.
The central V6 turbo 3.2 liter engine, just behind the driver, feeds its 875 bhp to the ground via six-speed manual transmission and an all-wheel-drive system comprising 22-inch alloys in the front and 23-inch counterparts in the back.
This while tipping the scales at just 875 kg (1,929 pounds). It is enough to take it from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in 1.73 seconds thanks to a power-to-weight ratio promising one horsepower for every kilo of kerb weight. Deceleration is created with four ventilated Brembo carbon discs (380 mm in the front and 337 mm in the rear).
Available exclusively on the PS3 in six colourways, the Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo will be released as a part of free update for Gran Turismo 6.
