Bmw Group Design announced that it created an exclusive concept for the Gran Turismo 6 video game. Set to be launched on December 6, the new Gran Turismo 6 will also include the Bmw Vision Gran Turismo concept car, a dynamic spots coupe that blends the German manufacturer’s racing genes with the design freedom inherent in a virtual car.
The car was created exclusively for the Gran Turismo 6 and features aerodynamic elements derived from Bmw’s experience on the race track. “Gran Turismo and BMW share a genetic passion for cars – both modern and classic,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “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.”
Sony likewise expressed its enthusiasm for the collaboration: “I was really impressed by the amount of thought BMW put in, for not only surface features of a car but their consideration for internal structures and mechanical components as well. I respect their sincere efforts and I am very much looking forward to the BMW Vision Gran Turismo,” said Kazunori Yamauchi, Producer Gran Turismo, President Polyphony Digital Inc. and Senior Vice President Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “I have immense respect for what’s been achieved here and am very much looking forward to the arrival of the BMW Vision Gran Turismo.”
