BMW has taken the wraps off their Vision Gran Turismo concept.

Designed exclusively for Gran Turismo 6, the concept promises to combine "BMW's unmistakable racing genes with the design freedom inherent in a virtual car."

According to Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW's Senior Vice President of Design, “Gran Turismo and BMW share a genetic passion for cars – both modern and classic. I’ve followed this racing game franchise from its beginnings and am extremely excited about the increased visual realism of Gran Turismo 6 and its incredibly authentic driving experience.”

The BMW Vision Gran Turismo will be joined by a handful of other concepts from Alfa Romeo, Alpine, Aston Martin, Audi, Bertone, GM, Honda, Infiniti, Italdesign Giugiaro, JORDAN Brand, Mercedes-Benz, Nike, Nissan, Peugeot, SRT, Volkswagen and Zagato. The cars will be released as "gifted downloadable content" through online updates as a way of saying thanks for supporting Gran Turismo for the past 15 years.
