Plus four Genesis Coupe-based race cars.
Remember Hyundai’s stunning N 2025 Vision GT concept, revealed about two years ago? You can now take the driver’s seat behind its steering wheel and virtually drive it in Polyphony Digital’s new racing simulator, the Gran Turismo Sport. The game is already available for the Playstation 4.
“The N 2025 Vision GT is our ambitious take on what we think prototype racing could look like in the not-too-distant future,” Chris Chapman, Chief Designer at the Hyundai Design Center in Irvine responsible for the project, comments. “We’re thrilled to see it presented anew in one of the most visually stunning racing simulations ever created.”
Chapman also explains that the study is “a point of pride for Hyundai on so many fronts,” because it “effortlessly combines beauty and function as a racing car, and it boasts a fuel-cell powertrain that is as progressive as the bodywork wrapped around it.”
