6 Digital Cars You Can Only Drive In Gran Turismo 6
When you hear Gran Turismo, you know that it’s one of the best racing games money can buy. After 17 years and six installments, it still remains one of the best video game franchises on the market, bar none. So without skipping a beat, developers made sure that Gran Turismo 6 was the most badass racing simulator to date, complete with street cars, race cars, and even a series of concepts cars designed exclusively for the series. These concept cars are so cool, and so insane, we doubt they’d ever hit the street in real life. But hey, if you have a remote control and GT6 in the console, the possibilities are endless. Click on the link to learn more about each: BMW Vision Gran Turismo
549 horsepower and a virtual 3.0-liter engine is what sits under the hood of this BMW-based concept. Using the new 2 Series as a platform, BMW designers and GT6 developers managed to pull as much insanity from the little coupe as possible for your racing enjoyment.
Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo
Unlike any Benz you’ve ever seen, the Mercedes AMG Vision GT is a study in “what if.” A 577 horsepower bi-turbo V8 sits under the hood, both in the game and in real life (yes, they actually built one), and it’s all managed under one stylish silhouette.
Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo
Mitsubishi might not be hitting all the right marks with U.S. car buyers, but it sure managed to conjure up its inner fanboy with this concept. A hybrid hatchback reminiscent of rally cars of past, it truly shows just what Mitsubishi can do.
Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo
Unlike the rest of the cars on this list, Nissan touts its 2020 Concept as “a vision of what a high performance Nissan could look like in the future.” We like the sound of that.
Using man GT-R cues, the Concept 2020 is a sleek new supercar ready to take on the (virtual) world.
Red Bull X2014 Concept
Imagine an F1 car that’s so fast, and so aerodynamic, that any human who tries to drive it would probably die. That’s exactly what the Red Bull X2014 concept is, it’s an idea of what an F1 car could look like with no limitations.
We’re sort of glad they didn’t build a real one of these.
Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo
What do you get when you take a GTI, and have someone step on it? You get the GTI Roadster Vision GT, a study in creative coupe and convertible engineering.
Aside from a creative look, it has 503 horsepower and a 3.0-liter V6.
