Nissan 2020 Concept Vision Gran Turismo

Αύριο στο Goodwood η Nissan θα παρουσιάσει για πρώτη φορά στο κοινό το 2020 Vision Gran Turismo Concept, το οποίο έχει σχεδιαστεί για το Gran Turismo 6. Η ιαπωνική εταιρία το περιγράφει ως “το όραμα ενός μελλοντικού Nissan υψηλής απόδοσης”, με το concept να έχει χωροταξική διάταξη 2+2 και να επηρεάζεται σε μεγάλο βαθμό από το GT-R.


Στο εμπρός μέρος βρίσκουμε την γνωστή πλέον μάσκα σχήματος V, που πλαισιώνεται από λεπτούς LED προβολείς, μεγάλους αεραγωγούς και αεριζόμενο καπό. Προχωρώντας πίσω, το αμάξωμα διαθέτει αρκετές καμπύλες, με τον οροφή να έχει διπλή “φούσκα”, πίσω στρογγυλά φωτιστικά σώματα, ενώ άλλα αξιοσημείωτα χαρακτηριστικά του είναι το χαμηλωμένο παρμπρίζ, οι 5-άκτινες ζάντες του και η carbon αεροτομή.

Το πρωτότυπο αναπτύχθηκε από μια ομάδα νέων σχεδιαστών του Ευρωπαϊκού τμήματος της Nissan, ενώ ήταν σε διαρκή συνεργασία με μια προηγμένη ομάδα μηχανικών από το Τεχνικό Κέντρο της Nissan στη πόλη Ατσούγκι της Ιαπωνίας.

Το αυτοκινητικό θα είναι διαθέσιμο στο δημοφιλέστατο παιχνίδι GT6 από τον επόμενο μήνα, με την Nissan και κλείνει με την αινιγματική φράση:

Ο πραγματικός κόσμος είναι έτοιμος για το Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo. Δείτε αυτό το κενό…

NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo to be presented at Goodwood on Thursday 26th at 13:00

  • 2+2 virtual supercar with advanced aerodynamic body
  • Four-wheel drive chassis, active suspension
  • Virtual version available to download in July Gran Turismo ®6

GOODWOOD, UK (25 June, 2014) – Nissan’s vision of a supercar for the future, originally created as a design study among Nissan’s young designers and formulated as a virtual model for the PlayStation®3 Gran Turismo® 6 (GT6™) computer game, has moved from the virtual world to reality.

The full size concept model will be presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK from 13:00 on Thursday 26th at the Nissan booth.

NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo began as a dream project for Nissan’s young designers who were given free rein to create the perfect supercar for their own Gran Turismo fantasy garage.

But the design from a team at Nissan Design Europe, based in London, was seen to have so much potential that it has benefited from input from the brand’s expert engineering team in Japan.

Adapting design cues from current Nissan performance models, it was created from scratch using the latest digital design tools: the first – and to date only – physical representation of the car is the actual concept model.

NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo emerged from a styling and design study among Nissan’s global pool of young designers. Each team was answering a call from the makers of Gran Turismo 6, who have asked different manufacturers present within the game to each create visionary, dream cars to celebrate its 15th anniversary.

Nissan’s 2+2 sports car adapts race-track technology – in particular air flow management – to a road car environment.

Working closely with skilled aerodynamic technicians and engineering teams in Japan to ensure the virtual car performs as realistically as possible, the design is partly shaped by emotion and partly by the wind.

Neat styling touches evoke aspects of Nissan performance models through the ages but present them in a futuristic way.

Although visitors to Goodwood Festival of Speed will see a physical interpretation of the car, the first people to ‘drive’ it will be GT6 gamers. NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, which will be available in ten different shades, will be available to download from July, 2014.

“This is in line with the Nissan philosophy,” says Koji Nagano, Vice President, Nissan Design Europe. “In reality, not everyone would be able to own a car like NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, but through Gran Turismo anyone can drive it and experience Nissan’s promise of delivering innovation that excites.”

So will a production version be driven up the Goodwood hill in 2020? That remains to be seen… but a great deal can happen in the near future. And in the meantime, enthusiasts can enjoy its dramatic looks and spectacular virtual performance from the comfort of their armchair!

Visitors will be able to experience motorsport thrills for themselves in high-tech Gran Turismo® 6 gaming pods. To complete the digital experience visitors can virtually design their own IDx concept with the Oculus Rift 3D virtual reality gaming headset that delivers mind-blowing realism.

There will be a strong Nissan presence on the Goodwood track too, with two versions of its all-conquering GT-R supercar – the GT-R NISMO and the record-breaking GT-R Time Attack appearing on the famous circuit throughout the weekend.
