Bugatti Gran Turismo Super Car Moves from the Virtual World to the Real World
The Bugatti Gran Turismo Super Car Comes to Life!
Bugatti has transformed its Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo from the virtual world of bytes and pixels into a real carbon-fibre racer. What started as a virtual car in a virtual world is now a real car on a real track. What we see, is a really cool super car!
Bugatti engineers have calculated that the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo can drive at over 400 kph (250 mph) on four sections of the virtual Le Mans track.
With our extreme speed on the long straights, we could make up for any disadvantages on the bends, and would then be as quick in the virtual world as the fastest real-life LMP1 race car, which, unlike us in the video game, naturally needs to comply with all FIA and ACO regulations.
To attain that performance goal, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo too is driven by a W16 engine, which delivers incredible power to all four wheels.
“While the Bugatti Veyron is a super sports car that’s a combination of the beauty and the beast, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is the ultimate performance beast,” says Anscheidt.
With its radical and extreme design, it’s a thoroughbred Bugatti for the virtual race track.
“We wanted to make the project as realistic as possible for our fans, and to introduce a real Bugatti to the virtual world of the PlayStation video game franchise,” explains Frank Heyl, head of exterior design for production development at Bugatti.
Every design feature has a purpose. Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is a successful symbiosis of technology and aesthetics.
Enjoy the ride.
