The Nissan 2020 Vision Gran Turismo Concept.
Updated November 30, 2014
As a tried, and true die hard Nissan fan, I love watching videos about the Nissan GTR, and how it seems to be the talk of the town whenever a new video pops up on YouTube. But just the other day, a new story broke out from the Nissan Europe camp about a brand new concept, and it’s called the Nissan 2020 Vision Gran Turismo Concept.
As it stands this is going to be a car that the designers over in the Nissan Europe camp felt the need to put out there for the sole sake of throwing it into the very well known Gran Turismo 6 video game. The team at Polyphony (GT producers) were ecstatic to hear of another great add-on to their GT6 video game. With the overall design completed, and the potential specs uploaded into the main servers, the Nissan 2020 Vision Gran Turismo will be had by thousands of players worldwide sometime in July.
Now with that said, this new concept car is something of a marvel, so much so that the design caught the attention of some heavy hitters in the boardrooms of Nissan, Japan, and they have taken a strong, yet subtle look at the presence that this new concept exudes. If you look at the 2020 Vision GT, you will notice some subtle, but in your face hues of the present day Nissan GT-R. The front fascia is very sharp, and edgy, kind of like a Lamborghini that was given an injection of true Japanese aggression. Massive sections of blacked out space, do nothing more than suck in all the air possible, while almost camouflaged jagged edged vertical blades dare anyone, or anything to step in front of this car while it’s moving. The lines from there follow a similar path to that of the present day GTR. The cockpit is cloaked in pitch black wrap around windows that effortlessly encase whomever is driving this mysterious machine. Once you get past those almost unnoticeable break lines, from where the doors should open up, your eyes will train towards the rear, as you catch a glimpse of that low hanging wing, that seems to just be sitting there. It’s a little reminiscent of the wings you would see as add on options from the game Need For Speed Underground. Flat, black, not flashy, but it does the trick.
The last, and what we believe is the part that really caught the eyes of the Japanese CEO’s was the use of those well known dual circular taillights. The very same lights that have been an integral part of the R35, the R34, the R33, but originally got their start on the R32 Skyline. That my friends is what has now got them to thinking that this is a car that can, and should be considered as a future successor to the present day Nissan GTR. It doesn’t take much for people who are Gearheads to know that when something looks good, you should act on it, and then go ahead, and put things into motion. Now granted 2020 is a mere 6 years away, and this car might not ever become anything more than rolling model for people to gawk, and drool over, but all I can say is, I hope that Nissan does what it has to, in order to make this significantly awesome car a reality.
