Vision Gran Turismo Concept
The Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo Concept is a virtual race car created
by Peugeot's design studio and intended to compete in Polyphony Digital's
Gran Turismo 6 racing game available on the PS3.
The Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo concept is a futuristic, high-powered
concept with an impressive 1:1 power to weight ratio - developing
875 horsepower and weighing in at 875 hypothetical kilos.
The concept has been developed as a high-performance endurance racer.
Power comes from a 3.2 litre turbocharged V6 engine which is matched
to a six-speed manual transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
Peugeot say this is enough to give the racer a 0-62 mph (100 km/h)
time of just 1.7 seconds.
For a race car the Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo concept is surprisingly
devoid of aerodynamic add-ons. This is because its designers say the
overall shape of the car provides enough downforce without the need
for much in the way of spoilers, wings and vents.
To illustrate the fairly generous proportions of the car, the concept
rides on 22-inch alloys up front, and monster 23-inch wheels at the
rear. Hiding behind these are four ventilated carbon ceramic discs
