Mercedes-Benz has fully revealed today details of a new concept car, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo! The concept has been built exclusively for the new PlayStation 3 racing game Gran Turismo 6 and to mark its 15th anniversary.
“By virtue of its proportions and expressive appearance, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo embodies the brand’s defining design philosophy of sensual purity in a unique way. The design of this concept car reflects to extreme effect the perfect symbiosis between emotional, sensuous contours and intelligently presented high tech,” says Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design Daimler AG.
Drawing inspiration from the legendary 300 SL racing car of 1952, Mercedes’ designers have given their latest concept exaggerated proportions; Power comes from an AMG V8 biturbo engine delivering 430 kW (585 hp) and a maximum torque of 800 Nm. As a 1:1-scale model, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo will make its world debut at the opening of the new Mercedes Benz Research & Development Center in Sunnyvale, California on 19 November 2013. Looks promising. What do you think of?
