The concept car features iconic Lamborghini styling, with a focus towards aerodynamics above all
Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled its new concept car, the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo, ahead of the World Finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships. The Lambo V12 Vision GT is a highly-visionary concept, which emphasises ‘fun to drive’ within the digital environment of the Gran Turismo Sport racing game for Sony PlayStation 4, the company noted. The concept car will be virtually available on the game from spring 2020.
The Lambo V12 Vision GT features a design produced by Lamborghini Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It is a single seater car model, which in its virtual form uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
The design of the Lambo V12 Vision GT is said to build on historic Lamborghini design DNA, expanding the potential of the design language in a very futuristic way. The iconic silhouette of all Lamborghini models that is focused on the single centre line emphasises a single-seater layout conceived for a racing game where a passenger is not needed.
The Lambo V12 Vision GT concept car’s powerful overall design is dedicated to sophisticated aerodynamics, noted the company. It is equipped with a large wing housing a significant Y-taillight, as well as Y-shaped headlights. The main body is disconnected from the fenders, and the hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows is inspired by the Lamborghini Marzal from 1968.
The cabin in the concept car resembles that of a jetfighter pilot, from the front of the car. The main driving controls are located within the futuristic steering wheel and all driver information is projected virtually in front of the driver.
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., said the company is a very young brand, and this is why it is presenting its newest virtual vision in the form of a real model. The concept is a highly-futuristic and cool design to be enjoyed by the young generation of racing game and super sports car enthusiasts, he added.
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, noted Mitja Borkert, Head, Lamborghini Centro Stile. He said, “It is an opportunity for the design talent within Lamborghini to stretch its wings and visualize a car that, like every Lamborghini, 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 hybridisation.”
