Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo concept design

The Vision Gran Turismo takes inspiration directly from legendary Ferrari sports cars from the 1960s and 1970s. 

Most notably, the supercar maker says it embodies the DNA of the 330 P3 and 512 S.


While paying homage to the Prancing Horse’s racing history, Ferrari says it also offers a glimpse into the future evolution of closed-wheel racing cars.

The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo is created with sharp, angular lines which lend themselves to the aerodynamic design of the car. 

The body of the concept is also designed to look as if it’s suspended over the flat, carbon-fiber underbody. 

And while the concept was created especially for the video game, Ferrari is also making a full-scale model.

The full-scale design study will be displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello from December 15 to March 2023. 

The digital version will make its first appearance around the same time, debuting on Gran Turismo 7 on December 23. 

The futuristic single-seater also celebrates 75 years since Ferrari’s first-ever racing car, the 125 S, left the factory gates in 1947.


The new hypercar has the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 you’ll find in the 296 GTB and the new 499P. 

Theoretically, it will reach a top speed of 217 mph (350km/h) and hit 60 mph in under two seconds. 


The weight of the concept car is just 1250kg, with a weight distribution of 43.5 percent at the front and 56.5 percent at the rear.

McLaren Solus GT

McLaren also built a real-life version of its Gran Turismo Sport concept car, the McLaren Solus GT.

The McLaren Solus GT is a realization of the radical McLaren concept car that was originally made for the world of virtual racing.

The single-seat, closed-cockpit car was unveiled during Monterey Car Week in California and is estimated to cost well over $3.6 million.
