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 PlayStation3. The race car, created by BMW Group Design, boasts a virtual three-litre six-cylinder inline engine developed by BMW M, which promises a peak performance of 404 kW/549 hp, fast laps and optimum handling and control.
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.
