Back in 2013, BMW offered the first glimpse of the Vision Gran Turismo Concept for the Gran Turismo 6 video game. Today, BMW officially unveiled the Vision Gran Turismo Concept and as many of you already know, it is believed to preview the upcoming M2. Clearly inspired by the M235i Coupe, the BMW Vision Gran Turismo is quite impressive and comes with an aggressive body kit that transforms the coupe into a beast of the track.
As you can see from the photos, the Vision Gran Turismo features large front and rear spoiler that ensure optimum downforce, wile the air conduction elements reduce the drag. The design is completed by the paint finish in BMW M colours.
According Karim Habib a.k.a. Head of Design BMW Automobiles, the new Vision Gran Turismo shows the pure BMW sportiness and dynamics. Under the hood, there is the 3.0-liter six-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers 549 hp (404 kW) and 680 Nm of torque.
The engine is bolted to a sequential six-speed transmission, operated by gearshift paddles on the steering wheel. As expected, power is delivered to the rear wheels.
Thanks to the use of carbon fiber, the Vision Gran Turismo has a total weight of just 1,180 kilograms and includes perfect 50:50 axle load distribution.
