Lamborghini Unveil V12 Vision GT Concept for Gamers

By Paul Joseph

Italian carmaker Lamborghini has unveiled a stunning new concept car at the recent Gran Turismo Championship World Finals in Monaco.

Called the Vision GT concept, also known as the Lambo V12, the prototype on display of the single-seater track-car will be available in a drivable form virtually in Gran Turismo Sport for PlayStation 4 from the spring of next year.

Similar to most of the previous Vision Gran Turismo concepts introduced by manufacturers like Jaguar, Bugatti, Hyundai, Zagato, the Lambo V12 boasts an ultra-radical design with dramatic styling elements.

Mitja Borkert, director of Lamborghini’s design center, says: “The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo was designed to be the best virtual car ever for all the young gamers and fans who love our brand.

“It is an opportunity for the genius and talent of our designers to fully express themselves and imagine a car that is not only fascinating and incredible to drive, but also reflects the design center’s commitment to developing innovative technologies, especially in the field of light materials and hybridization.”

Despite the fact that the single-seat race car will only be drivable virtually, Lamborghini claims that the angular exterior design was developed with aerodynamics in mind.

Underneath the eye-catching bodywork is the same 819-hp hybrid powertrain from the limited production Sián FKP 37 revealed back in September this year. Lamborghini says that they calculated the car’s overall dry weight to be 819 kilograms, giving it a highly desirable one-to-one power to weight ratio.

There are no performance numbers for the concept car yet and this will remain the case until the car debuts in Gran Turismo Sport.
