On May 19, Nissanâ€™s Infiniti brand unveiled the Concept Vision Gran Turismo for the first time outside of China at the Gran Turismo Sport event in the UK.
The concept model made its world premiere at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show in April, 2015. It was born out of a collaboration with Sony Computer Entertainmentâ€™s Gran Turismo 6 PlayStation 3 game, which was released at the end of 2013.
It is based on the theme â€œA Pure Infiniti Carâ€ and ideas were gathered from Infinitiâ€™s design divisions from all over the world. The idea of the Beijing team was chosen as the best. The resulting Concept Vision Gran Turismo is a GT car with a design that is fierce, strong and sensual.
The power train is a hybrid system with a naturally aspirated 4.5L V8 gasoline engine and motor. Its front mid-ship and trans-axle layout gives it a weight balance from front to back of 45 to 55.
The Concept Vision Gran Turismo was presented for the first time outside of China at a special unveiling at Gran Turismo Sport in the UK. It is set to appear in Gran Turismo Sport, which will be released in November.
