Lamborghini presented its new concept car, the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo, for FIA Gran Turismo Championships.
Automobili Lamborghini presents its new concept car, the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo, designed for the World Finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships taking place in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The Lambo V12 Vision GT is a pure visionary concept, stressing 'fun to drive' within the digital world of the iconic Gran Turismo Sport for Sony PlayStation, where it will be virtually available from spring 2020.
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. comments:
“Lamborghini is a very young brand, and this is why we are here today to present our newest virtual vision in the form of a real model, with a highly futuristic and cool design to be enjoyed by the young generation of racing game and super sports car enthusiasts.”
The Lambo V12 Vision GT has a very futuristic design by Lamborghini Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It is a single-seater, which in its virtual form uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37. The design builds on historic Lamborghini design DNA, expanding the potential of the design language in a very modern way. Focused on the single centerline, the iconic silhouette of all Lamborghini models, it emphasizes a single-seater layout conceived for a racing game where a passenger is not needed.
The vision's powerful overall design is built around sophisticated aerodynamics. A large wing housing a significant Y-taillight dominates the rear. All elements are designed as high-performance surfaces, integrating design and aerodynamics. The main body is disconnected from the fenders, and the hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows is inspired by the Lamborghini Marzal from 1968. The Lambo V12 Vision GT uses the typical Lamborghini Y-signature for both front lights and rear lights.
A visionary concept requires an interior design ahead of its time. The driver enters the cabin like a jet fighter pilot, from the front of the car. The main driving controls are located within the futuristic steering wheel and all driver information is projected virtually in front of the driver.
“The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo is created to provide the ultimate virtual car for young fans and gamers, who are ultra-enthusiastic about Lamborghini and its futuristic aspirations. It is an opportunity for the design talent within Lamborghini to stretch its wings and visualize a car that, like every Lamborghini, is a head-turner and the best driving experience, but also mirrors Lamborghini's push on future technologies, particularly in the arena of lightweight materials and hybridization,” said Mitja Borkert, Head of Lamborghini Centro Stile.
