After one teaser, Aston Martin revealed its astonishing Design Prototype (DP-100) that joins the stable of Vision Gran Turismo 6 racers in the popular racing game for PlayStation 3. As you may already know, the new virtual concept car was developed in-house by the Design team at Aston Martin, led by Design Director Marek Reichman.
The design is impressive, clearly inspired by iconic Aston Martin models but also by the limited-edition One-77. According to Aston Martin, the mid-engined DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo Concept is powered by a twin-turbo V12 that delivers up to 800 bhp.
Still, the DP-100 will remain just a virtual concept car as we don’t believe we will ever see a production version of it.
Design Director Marek Reichman said: “DP-100 has been an exciting and intensive project for the team here at Gaydon. “Features such as the car’s revolutionary ‘active aerodynamics’ are there not just as a way of enhancing form, but also to support the car’s function in-game. “As with the CC100 Speedster Concept, many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that we’ll launch in the offline world so the importance of this project should not be underestimated.” [source: Aston Martin]
