The latest avatar of the highly successful Gran Turismo video game will be out on 17 October. Ahead of the launch, McLaren has virtually unveiled a new car that will debut in the game and it is called the McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo.  

Given that there are no limits in video games, the exterior design is unlike anything we have seen from McLaren before. There are heavily flared wheel arches, aerodynamic bits and a slender rear mid-set single seat racecar cabin.

However, even with so many futurisms, we can still see the McLaren family connection thanks to the shape of the head lamps which closely resemble the ones found on the 720S. This is expected to be their signature style even in the future.  

The cabin visible in the design is a single seat affair. There is a large glass canopy cover over the driver and all bits and connections are naked and made of carbon fibre. The entire instrument cluster is virtual and beamed onto the glass for the driver to see.

This Ultimate Vision GT is powered by a hybrid powertrain. This is divided into a 4.0-litre McLaren spec V8 powering the rear wheels while the front wheels get electric motors. The total output- 1150bhp/1275Nm!

The car was created in response to a call from Gran Tursimo’s creator Kazunori Yamauchi. It will be available in three liveries designed specifically for this version of the Gran Turismo game. They are Performance, Ulterior and Noir.
