Over the years, the Gran Turismo franchise grew both in spectacularity and design. More and more innovative cars were introduced to the games and the gameplay went well above and beyond expectations.
This year, on December 6, we'll be taking a first look at the new game, the Gran Turismo 6, celebrating Polyphony Digital Inc's (the developing studio) 15th anniversary.

Of course, such an occasion couldn't go unnoticed so they created a new initiative called Vision Gran Turismo. This part was created with the assistance of a number of manufacturers amongst which you'll find Aston Martin, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and, of course BMW.

Their design was inspired by the Vision concept that will be materialized in the shape of the i8. Needless to say that, being a video game, the car can and it does look simply amazing, even though we don't have the complete details at the moment.

The hallmark corona rings at the front are easily noticeable and so are the M stripes on the front bumper's lip. Another interesting detail is a huge wing at the back, probably to keep the car in check at high speeds (inside the game, of course).

“Gran Turismo and BMW share the mutual genes of enthusiasm for modern and classics cars. I have known the Gran Turismo series right from the beginning – the increased level of realism in visualisation and the authentic driving experience in Gran Turismo 6 is incredibly impressive," said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President at BMW Group Design.

“Vision Gran Turismo is a very creative opportunity to present our BMW Design vision, which we developed exclusively for this game, in an innovative way. We are very excited and looking forward to the feedback of the global community. It’s our way of congratulating Polyphony and Sony for the 15th Anniversary of the Gran Turismo franchise!” added Andreas-Cristoph Hofmann, Vice President Brand Communication BMW.
