The new McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo has quite impressive specifications, giving out as much as 1,150 horsepower with its unique hybrid setup.

This model was made specially for the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport video game. Under the hood is a 4.0-liter V8 engine by McLaren that has been taken from the 720S. In the virtual world, the Ultimate Vision GT had been given two front wheels on both the front wheels. Thanks to its hybrid powertrain, it gets an impressive torque of 1,275 Newton metres (940 pound-feet).

The Ultimate Vision GT is not all about its four-digit horsepower and torque, and its all-wheel-drive setup. Physically, it looks like it teleported from the future to the present time. Its design is like one of McLaren’s vision of a high performance model for the year 2030 and beyond. In the video game, players will be able to drive the car with three available configurations, including Performance, Ulterior and Noir.
