Genesis is the current in a long line of car manufacturers to reveal an idea for the “Gran Turismo” computer game series.
The car manufacturer used the past weekend’s Gran Turismo World Series World Finals in Barcelona, Spain, to debut the X Gran Berlinetta Vision Gran Turismo principle and validate its availability in the computer game from Jan. 2024.
The idea, a hypercar packaging 1,071 hp, belongs to the Vision Gran Turismo series, an obstacle advanced to car design groups around the globe early last years by Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of Gran Turismo. His difficulty was for style teams to come up with the ultimate grand tourer. While most of the resulting concepts have actually been too wild for production, some have affected the designs of production-bound models.
The X Gran Berlinetta Vision Gran Turismo is unlikely to make it into production, but it shows the versatility of Genesis’ present design language, and may sneak peek style components and innovation predestined for future showroom-bound designs, including potentially a reported flagship EV.
The idea is no EV, however. It features a hybrid powertrain consisted of a V-6 engine in a front-midship position and a single electric motor. The peak output of 1,071 hp is generated by the V-6 delivering a peak 870 hp and the electric motor, in this case a lightweight style by Mercedes-Benz-owned Yasa, delivering the remaining 201 hp. Mounting of the electrical motor and which wheels are doing the driving wasn’t discussed.
Beyond the powertrain, the idea likewise introduces a brand-new take on Genesis’ crest grille design, where the grille links with the lights. The lights, in this case the familiar double bar motif found on existing Genesis automobiles, then twist around to the sides of the vehicle and reach the front fenders. The remainder of the body has actually been formed to optimum aerodynamic homes, with Genesis quoting a drag coefficient of 0.34 cd.
Carbon fiber is used for much of the construction, including in the cabin which depends on cushioned locations with quilted detailing anywhere the residents come into contact with a surface area. Digital screens are discovered on the steering wheel center and dash, with the latter displaying infotainment material along with video recorded by cameras changing the side mirrors.
