the ‘peugeot vision gran tursimo’ was sketched in a collaboration with the creators of gran turismo playstation driving simulator, and the peugeot team of designers and ‘peugeot sport’ engineers to deliver a supercar characteristic to an endurance racer. the rendering has aerodynamic flared wheel arches and sharp contour lines that are distinctive to features of a high performance vehicle. the concept boasts a V6 turbo 3.2L engine that outputs 875 bhp to a six-peed manual transmission and an all-wheel drive system. standing just 104 cm tall, the automobile comes with 22-inch alloy wheels in the front and 23-inch in the back. that keeps the weight to 875 kg and taking it from 0 to 100 kph in 1.73 seconds thanks to a power-to-weight ratio encouraging one horsepower for every kilo of curb weight. the vehicle will be available for free download exclusively on the sony playstation 4 gaming system soon.

‘the concept car combines the characteristics from a big GT, supercar and sports prototypes,’ said by peugeot design director gilles vidal.  ‘the cuts between the tinted, very dark windows and the bodywork are quite unexpected. the body work features extremely glossy paints, matte shades and red details: the peugeot sport signature, cherished by the brand.’
