Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo brought to life at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 26, 2014

The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo – representing the carmaker’s supercar vision – has moved from being a virtual model for the PlayStation3 Gran Turismo 6 to a full size concept model. Nissan will unveil the concept at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom on June 26, 2014.

The concept started as a dream project for Nissan’s young designers who were given the liberty to build their vision of a perfect supercar for their Gran Turismo fantasy garage. What caught the eye of the carmaker was a design from a team at Nissan Design Europe, moving the brand to have its own engineering team from Japan take part in its conception.

The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo featured design cues from current Nissan performance models. The makers of Gran Turismo 6 asked carmakers featured in the game to create their dream cars to celebrate its 15th anniversary.

For Nissan, the result was the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo 2+2 sports car. The concept features race-track technology like air flow management. The design team for the concept collaborated with Nissan’s aerodynamic technicians and engineering teams in Japan to ensure that it could also perform well in real life.

The concept’s neat styling touches suggest design cues from the carmaker’s past performance models, albeit done in a futuristic manner. Sorry for visitors at Nissan’s booth at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but they could only take a look at but not drive the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo.

After all, it first drivers are those GT6 gamers, who could start downloading the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo next month. They could choose from ten different shades.

Koji Nagano, Vice President, Nissan Design Europe, remarked that while not everyone would be able to own a car like Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo in reality, but they could drive and experience it through Gran Turismo.
