You may remember Nissan’s Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, which debuted in both Gran Turismo 6 DLC and real-life form at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Now it’s back again for the Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s very, very red. I’m a fan.
This new Bugatti won’t even cost an entire Lamborghini more than the Veyron, mostly because it’s not real. Yet they will build a Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo show car for Frankfurt, and it’s the Veyron race car we’ve always needed. And I want to poke it.
Why can’t Americans build a decent shooting brake? I’m sure you’ve asked yourself that question in the shower. Truly, anyone can build a sexy shooting brake, it just takes a good designer like Gabriel Hantig.
Those squat, boxy-looking sketches of the Mini Clubman Gran Turismo Vision Concept don't do it justice. The actual in-game car looks badass and I want it. Why, oh why, can't it be real?
Mini is the latest company to jump on the Gran Turismo Vision Concept bandwagon, and the car they're cooking up for GT6 is appropriately bonkers. An aggressive bodykit, two "barn" doors, and 395 horsepower make for the coolest Mini Clubman I've ever seen, even if it's not real.
How effective is the GT Academy, where Nissan picks the best gamers from Gran Turismo to train and turn into real-life racing drivers? We'll see this year at Le Mans. By putting GT Academy grads in their LMP1-class race car, we'll finally see them go head-to-head with some of the best driving talent in the world.
Here's the newest Vision Gran Turismo car: the Mazda LM55, a modern follow up to the company's Le Mans-winning past.
Meet the race car GM would build if there were no limits, the Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo for GT6. GM should definitely go prototype racing with this.
Another day, another Gran Turismo Vision concept, where an automaker debuts a GT6-only concept deemed too crazy to exist in real-life form. This one comes from Subaru, and it's called the Viziv GT Vision Concept. I like it, but I say this: Where's the rally car?
Got a radical idea for a concept car that's totally unfeasible in real life? No problem, just make it into a Gran Turismo Vision car. We've seen some pretty wild ones so far, but rather than just do a wild Corvette Stingray from 2050, Chevrolet is reviving a famous name from racing history — Chaparral. And that's…
For six years, Nissan's GT Academy has plucked the best, brightest, and fastest from Gran Turismo and thrust them into the real world of racing. And they've done well. Really well. For the fourth year, Spike was on hand to watch virtual racers rise up the ranks to get their shot at the big time, and the new season…
Here's a real treat in case you don't feel like working much this afternoon: you can now watch the film KAZ: Pushing The Virtual Divide for free on YouTube. And you really should.
Two racers enter, one racer leaves. The venue: The Goodwood Festival of Speed. The ride: the refreshed 2015 Ford Focus ST. The combatants: pro racing driver Ben "The Stig" Collins and Gran Turismo 6 player Krisztián Somodi.
Is it silly to release a teaser video for a car that only exists in the virtual world? I don't think so, especially if the car is as extreme-looking as the Aston Martin DP-100. It doesn't look like any Aston Martin we've ever seen before.
Gran Turismo 6 has become the first racing video game to be officially certified by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the leading governing body of autosport events. In fact, it's probably the first video game of any kind to receive this certification, since I don't think Mr.Do was ever officially…
Nissan has lifted the red sheet off their mysterious Gran Turismo car, and it looks like what you get when you cross a GT-R with a Koenigsegg. This is the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, and I think it looks pretty badass.
