Meet the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo – a concept supercar that made its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Nissan has always been known to be formidable in the Gran Turismo game but it’s likely to gain even more recognition with the launch of this concept.
With a striking body color in Fire Knight red, this supercar was built together with the Gran Turismo creators themselves, Polyphony Digital Inc. The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo uses a reinterpretation of the brand’s trademark V-Motion grille.
Gamers who attended the Tokyo show as well as those around the world who are viewing the supercar at their homes couldn’t help but gasp at this tangible expression of the virtual vehicle. Nissan has always been known for their innovativeness and the outstanding performance of their models.
The Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo is proof that the brand continues to reign supreme as it tapped young designers to build the supercar from their vision. London-based Nissan Design Europe created its design while an engineering team in Japan provided input.
It was built from the ground up by designers who utilized the newest digital tools. Upon closer inspection, this supercar concept shares certain design cues with the brand’s existing performance models. So far, this concept seen in Tokyo is the only physical model made.
It was from a styling study of the brand’s young designers from all around the world that the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo took shape. The creators of Grand Turismo 6 wanted to do something special for the 15th anniversary of the game and so they decided to ask 28 producers to make their own dream car.
Nissan rose to the challenge by applying its racing technology on its 2+2 sports car; particularly, the brand is bringing its air flow expertise to the road car. To meet the challenge of having the virtual car’s performance as close to real as possible, Nissan closely collaborated with its Japan-based engineers and aerodynamic technicians.
The Japanese manufacturer describes this supercar’s design as the product of the forces of emotion and wind. A futuristic method was taken in how styling elements of various Nissan performance cars in history appeared in the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, elevating this model to incredible heights.
