Introducing Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo

The concept car, which was created for "Gran Turismo 6," the Playstation racing game, is more than simply a collection of pixels and computer code. The car, which manages to pay homage to the marque's supercars of decades past, such as the original 300SL and current flagship vehicles, while also being clearly a visitor from the automotive future, blends long, feminine flowing lines with aggressive animalistic front and rear haunches that cover the car's oversized alloy wheels.

Under the hood is a front mid-mounted V8 biturbo engine courtesy of AMG and as the car is built using an aluminum space frame adorned with carbon fiber, it tips the scales at just 1385kg, meaning that it offers a power-to-weight ratio of 1hp to every 2.4kg, so could well wipe the floor with anything Lamborghini or Ferrari currently have to offer.
