BMW launched a new virtual car for Gran Turismo 6: the BMW Vision Gran Turismo. The car “boasts a virtual three-litre six-cylinder inline engine developed by BMW M GmbH, which promises a peak performance of 404 kW/549 hp, fast laps and optimum handling and control.”
Last year, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi asked auto manufacturers to design cars for the latest release in the Gran Turismo franchise. When asked about the car, Yamauchi said:
I was eagerly awaiting what kind of car the people at BMW would come up with. The resulting Vision Gran Turismo car was a sports car that was so clearly BMW that really shows the DNA of BMW. What makes the Vision GT car so recognizable as a BMW, is in things like its compact size, its wide front and rear overfenders. It maintains the strong angular forms from the past, but the car is also given modern, elegant lines.
This car is included with patch 1.07 for Gran Turismo 6. You can see the trailer for the car below:
