Vision Gran Turismo to include free, playable concept car designs through GT6
Gran Turismo 6′s Vision project has been given a few more details. Basically, as mentioned yesterday, Vision contains different concept vehicles as part of a collaboration with manufacturers, and in some cases, the vehicles will be manufactured in the real world.
Vision Gran Turismo will contain a range of exclusive and “daring” concept vehicles from brands, manufacturers and design houses including: Alfa Romeo, Alpine, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Bertone, GM Design, Honda, Infiniti, Italdesign Giugiaro, JORDAN Brand, Mercedes-Benz, Nike, Nissan, Peugeot, SRT (Chrysler), Volkswagen and Zagato.
Each partner will bring exclusively to Gran Turismo the team’s own take on the future of all things racing.
“This is a very exciting project. Ever since we released the first Gran Turismo game 15 years ago, GT has resonated with the automotive world and we have enjoyed many different and fascinating collaborations. But Vision Gran Turismo is probably our most ambitious to date,” said Gran Turismo creator and president of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi.
“It promises to provide a window into the future of automotive design that we can bring to life in Gran Turismo 6. We are extremely grateful to all of our design partners in this project for their amazing birthday present to Gran Turismo to celebrate the franchise’s 15 year anniversary, and are so excited to share this gift with our fans.
“Working closely with the leading lights of automotive design, as well as some design teams from outside of the industry, has been a rare privilege and we look forward to sharing their creations with fans of Gran Turismo from this year through to 2014.”
The designs from project will be released and playable from the launch of Gran Turismo 6 throughout 2014 and will be free to own via a series of updates from the launch on December 6.
