Mercedes-Benz has developed a visionary concept of a super sports car in the form of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo to commemorate the release of Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3. Due to premiere November 19 at the opening of the new Mercedes-Benz Research & Development Center in Sunnyvale, California, the super sports car will be taking to the virtual racetrack when the game goes on sale in December as the first of the “Vision Gran Turismo” series of vehicles. To mark the 15th birthday of the Gran Turismo series this year, Kazunori Yamauchi, Producer of Gran Turismo and President of Polyphony Digital Inc., called upon the world’s leading automotive manufacturers and design studios to look forward into the future. Using the theme “Vision Gran Turismo,” these creative teams developed concept models which give a unique insight into the further development of the automobile. As virtual vehicles that function just like real cars, the concepts will be gradually unveiled in and integrated into the new game through online updates.
