Aston Martin DP-100 vision Gran Turismo concept

by staff writer JP

Designed and engineered over six months by Aston Martin Design team, DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo is a new, virtual-only GT racer that will be available for Gran Turismo®6. The twin-turbo V12 mid-engined racer offers up to 800bhp, endowing it with blistering performance fully in keeping with the high octane nature of the game. Features such as the car’s revolutionary ‘active aerodynamics’ are there not just as a way of enhancing form, but also to support the car’s function in-game.

Led by Design Director Marek Reichman, he said: “As with the CC100 Speedster Concept, many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that we’ll launch in the offline world so the importance of this project should not be underestimated.” With the bold proposal of the car being the first midship layout model in Aston Martin history – it’s going to turn heads.
