To celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the famed Gran Turismo video game, Aston Martin sent its top designers to the drawing board with no restrictions. Their goal was to create a virtual car that would look stunning and blow its competition away in the popular Gran Turismo game. After an intense six-month period, Aston Martin finally revealed the 2014 DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo, its newest virtual sports car model to hit the Gran Turismo gaming world at the Goodwill Festival of Speed. The designer’s top mission was to create a car that would wow the gaming world both by its exterior design and its racetrack performance.
The look of the new 100 Vision Gran Turismo is truly futuristic, and if it were not for the Aton Martin standard front grille and the undeniable logo, you would not even know this company designed this virtual car. You can tell the aerodynamics had a lot to do with the overall concept of this car. Its low-riding frame matched with its low roofline certainly gives the car a sports car look.
Special features include the swan wing doors that make it easier to get in and out of the cockpit, the vented wheel arches that are designed to improve handling at top speeds. The vehicle also has active wheel blades that open and close to assist with brake control, but also look great on the road. The blade taillights and the tiny front headlights also provide a sporty look as the car speeds down the track, especial in nighttime mode.
Other stylish features include the lip-spoiler in the front-end that is designed to take the place of the standard front bumpers, the perfectly curved windshield, and a large rear diffuser with dual exhaust system. Add these features altogether, and you get one great looking vehicle, even if it is only for the virtual world.
The car was uniquely designed with the engine placed right behind the front seats and are covered with a see-thru hood. A look under the hood displays a 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine that produces an amazing 800 horsepower. This engine has enough power to help the new 2014 Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo to win more than its share of races. The aerodynamic design also helps the car effectively handle corners and turns to keep ahead of the pack.
The new 2014 Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo just became available for gamers to download, so reviews as to how it performs in the game are still waiting to come in. However, this is not the first Aston Martin virtual model to grace the screens of the Gran Turismo game, so gamers are counting on the fact that it will deliver a strong performance.
