Gran Turismo 6 fans will be happy to know that a new vehicle was added to the game and will be available for download starting today. Dubbed Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo, the racing car was created by Infiniti’s team in Beijing and according to the company, it is a mix of a track machine and the dream of the Chinese design team.

According to the Japanese company owned by Nissan, the Concept Vision Gran Turismo is not just a design exercise and the team made plenty of examinations and calculations of technical features such as aerodynamics and engine performance.

The front mid-ship / trans-axle powertrain enables the finely distributed 45:55 front/rear weight balance and delivers the joy of driving by actively drifting the rear.

When it comes to aerodynamics, the Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo features front and rear diffusers as well as an uniquely shaped rear spoiler that demonstrates high-performance without compromising the impact of the body design.

So, if you are a lucky person who owns a PlayStation 3 system don’t just stand there, download the new vehicle and get ready to test drive it on world famous tracks across the globe! 

Press Release

Infiniti Vision Gran Turismo Concept

Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo is a vision of what a high performance Infiniti could look like in the future. It was created through close collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo®, the racing game franchise developed by Polyphony Digital Inc. that has sold more than 72 million copies worldwide. The Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo is available for download in Gran Turismo®6 (GT6™) exclusively on the PlayStation®3 system.

The Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo is a project that started as an ambitious global Infiniti Design competition to "design a pure Infiniti GT car". The winning model was born from the theme put forward by Infiniti's Design team in Beijing. Part beauty, part beast, its shape is powerful, sensual, and audacious; a mix of a track machine and the dream of our Chinese design team to create an ambitious racing language for Infiniti.

The process of developing the design of the Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo started with hand sketching, then refined digitally, refined again by hand sculpting then returned to digital for final refinement.

This project went much further than being a mere design exercise. It included thorough examinations and calculations of technical features such as aerodynamics and engine performance. The front mid-ship / trans-axle powertrain enables the finely distributed 45:55 front/rear weight balance that fills users with the joy of driving by actively drifting the rear. As for aerodynamics, the under-floor airflow control, front and back diffusers, and uniquely-shaped rear spoiler enable this car to demonstrate high performance without compromising the impact of the body design.
