in celebration of the driving video game gran turismo‘s 15th anniversary, nissan designers were asked to dream-up their ideal concept car for their own gran turismo fantasy garage. responding to the open brief, a team of young creatives at nissan design europe in london, UK, developed the ‘nissan concept 2020 vision gran turismo’.

citing stylistic references from nissan’s GT-R, as well as evoking aspects of the company’s performance models throughout the ages, the aerodynamic scheme was considered to have so much potential that the advanced engineering team based at the nissan technical centre in atsugi, japan got involved to take the car from a state of virtual concept to reality. together the designers and technicians worked closely to ensure that the computer-generated vehicle would perform as realistically as possible.
