Mercedes Gran Turismo Concept is Virtually Awesome

Mercedes-AMG has revealed its wild Vision Gran Turismo concept that will be making its official debut at the 2013 L.A. Auto Show.

The especially wide supercar was designed specifically for the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 video game. Powered by an AMG biturbo V8, the Vision Gran Turismo has a whopping 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque and weighs in at only 3,053 lbs. It was unveiled to celebrate the opening of the new Mercedes-Benz Research & Development Center in Sunnyvale, Calif.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the popular Gran Turismo series this year, its producer Kazunori Yamauchi requested from various automakers futuristic concept cars to be used in the game. The entry from Mercedes-AMG not only sports an extremely aggressive exterior design, but the interior has been inspired by a Formula 1 race carís cockpit with red integral sports seats blending into the black flooring of the footwell to form a protective shell.

I like the smooth but dramatic curves of the Mercede's concept. The Citroen looks too much like an elaborate kit car and while more dramatic it also is less refined. The only criticism of the Mercede's concept is the massive front grill.
