The Nissan 2020 Vision has been updated with a new exterior color and a barely noticeable revised grille for its Tokyo Motor Show debut later this month.
The uber-awesome Nissan 2020 Vision Gran Turismo is a concept car developed in conjunction with Polyphony Digital Inc., for the Gran Turismo video game. This stunning super car is just one of many extraordinary-looking machines engineered to take part in the virtual world of motor racing.
It carries many design cues found on the current-gen GT-R on a whole different level, whilst its styling and name are a nod to where the Japanese car manufacturer is heading in the not so distant future.
In fact, the original concept – which was gray, by the way – was created by a team of young designers at Nissan Design Europe, in London, and even though it was conceived to make you drool over the Playstation controller while driving it in Gran Turismo, the car actually offers some visual insights regarding the R35 GT-R’s replacement.
Nissan, like other renowned car manufacturers, even went the extra mile and made a real life scale model of the thing, revealing it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2014, which kind of shows the level of commitment and seriousness regarding the “Vision”. Since then, the car slightly transformed in this new, phenomenal beast and it’s ready to awe and amaze everybody at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show.
Unlike the previous built, the new machine features a more exciting “Fire Knight” red body color and a slightly revised version of Nissan’s signature V-Motion grille – also found dominating the front fascia of the recently launched Gripz concept.
It’s interesting to see how the GT-R evolved – over the years – from a regular two-door body style into a full-on, wide, hunkered-down supercar killer. Moreover, this particular concept hints that the GT-R it isn’t too far away from adopting supercar proportions. By: CarsCoops
