Mercedes-Benz has released a "making of" video for the stunning AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept developed exclusively for Gran Turismo 6 on PlayStation 3.

One of the many cars available in Polyphony Digital's latest installment of the award-winning Gran Turismo franchise will be the AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept by Mercedes-Benz. It's more than just a spectacular virtual car as the German marque actually built a 1:1 scale model which was showcased at the Los Angeles Auto Show last month.

The concept was envisioned with a rear-wheel drive setup and a 577 bhp AMG V8 engine wrapped around in a curvaceous body weighing 1,384 kg (3,053 lbs). It looks very futuristic yet at the same time is a throwback to classic Mercedes-Benz models such as the W196 and the gorgeous 300 SL, perhaps the most beautiful car ever released with the three-pointed star.

Gran Turismo 6 will be out only on the PlayStation 3 on Friday.
