Lamborghini’s newest concept car has just been revealed. The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo debuts ahead of the world finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships.
“Lamborghini is a very young brand, and this is why we are here today to present our newest virtual vision in the form of a real model, with a highly futuristic and cool design to be enjoyed by the young generation of racing game and super sports car enthusiasts,” says Stefano Domenicali, chairman and chief executive officer, Automobili Lamborghini.
The video game car uses Lamborghini design DNA and futuristic traits focused on the single center line and the silhouette while emphasizing a single-seater layout which, in its virtual form, uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
“The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo is created to provide the ultimate virtual car for young fans and gamers, who are ultra-enthusiastic about Lamborghini and its futuristic aspirations,” says Mitja Borkert, head, Centro Stile, Automobili Lamborghini. “It is an opportunity for Lamborghini’s design talent to stretch its wings and visualize a car that, like every Lamborghini, not only is a head-turner and the best driving experience, but also mirrors Lamborghini's push on future technologies, particularly in the arena of lightweight materials and hybridization.”
Lamborghini Centro Stile further expressed its dedication to aerodynamics while integrating performance surfaces and design elements such as a large wing housing a significant Y-taillight dominating the rear, the main body disconnected from the fenders, hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows inspired by the Lamborghini Marzal from 1968 and the typical Lamborghini Y-signature for both front and rear lights.
The car is planned to be included in the “Gran Turismo Sport” video game by spring 2020.
