• Lamborghini pushes styling language to the maximum with V12 Vision Gran Turismo Concept

      What happens when you let Lamborghini designers go nut? This. It is a video game car so not a real thing but it does point to what Lamborghini sees as its future styling direction. This absolutely looks like a Lamborghini from the future.

      The car does drive and is said to have an 819 horsepower hybrid drivetrain based around a V12 gasoline powerplant. It is a single seater with the driver in the middle.

      Obviously this will never be for sale or hit the road but some people at Lamborghini got to have some fun.

      Lamborghini’s newest concept car has just been unveiled and it’s ready to hit the track, this time a slightly different one. The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo has made its debut ahead of the World Finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships taking place in Monte Carlo, Monaco this weekend, and will enable you to experience the ‘fun to drive’ in the iconic racing game Gran Turismo Sport for Sony PlayStation 4, where it will be virtually available from spring 2020.

      Visionary Concept

      Lamborghini design DNA and futuristic traits focus on the iconic single center line and the unmistakable silhouette while emphasizing a single seater layout which, in its virtual form, uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.

      Sophisticated Aerodynamics

      Lamborghini Centro Stile further expressed its dedication to sophisticated aerodynamics while integrating performance surfaces and mind-blowing design: 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.

      Feel like a pilot

      Interior design ahead of its time: the driver enters the cabin like a jetfighter pilot, from the front of the car. The main driving controls are located in the futuristic steering wheel and all driver information is projected virtually in front of the driver.

      In other words…

      Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini commented: “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.”

      “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,” said Mitja Borkert, Head of Lamborghini Centro Stile. ”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.”
