BMW Vision Gran Turismo | Pure racecar

In most cases the virtual reality transcends life itself and the new prototype racer of BMW is no exception, at least in our eyes! The virtual racecar you see in the pictures with the name Vision Gran Turismo isdesigned from the Bavarians for the lovers of Driving Simulators and more specifically for the brand new Gran Turismo 6 running on Sony PlayStation. The Vision GT looks like a turnaround of the actual racing version of BMW M235i Racing, both in terms of design and in terms of performance. The creators of the BMW Group Design envisioned a 6 cylinder with 3 liters under the bonnet which is evolved from BMW M GmbH, and promises maximum power which reaches 549 horsepower for fast laps and perfect drivability and direct control.

The engine delivers maximum torque of around 680 Nm from just 1.900 rpm and combined with the 6 speed serial transmission which the driver operates by paddles on the steering wheel. The move of BMW Vision Gran Turismo is transmitted to the rear wheels while the total weight reaches 1.180 kg, which is ideally distributed between the front and rear axles (50:50). Its design is reminiscent of something from the BMW touring cars of the ’70s, with ideal proportions and dynamic silhouette to create an eye catcher set! The front spoiler and large rear spoiler is designed to produce perfect downforce in real life situations, while all aerodynamic aids are made of carbon fiber in order to reduce overall weight. Finally, the colors of BMW M division largely airflows through the aerodynamic shape adding martial overtones throughout.

As you can see for yourself, the BMW Vision Gran Turismo is based on the racing version of the M235i Racing. The question is why the design department of the German company put so much effort into transforming a real racecare virtual, when you can make any futuristic prototype which would be very impressive without any reference to facts. As the Mercedes did for example in a similar situation with the AMG Vision Gran Turismo. The only hope is that BMW intends eventually to develop a similar model in actual reality.

As stated by the company’s vice president of communication, Andreas Christoph Hofmann: this racing car gives us an insight into the trends of the future in the games and allows fans of simulators to get an experience of BMW quality to the race. We would add that if the upcoming BMW M2 looks even a little bit like this prototype, then it is surely doomed to impress and succeed.
