Joining the throng of manufacturers releasing digital concepts for the digital world Nissan has unveiled what could be the shape of the next GT-R.

Nissan today lifted the virtual covers off the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, a vision of what a high performance Nissan could look like in the future. It was created through close collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital, the legendary PlayStation driving franchise.

Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo began life as dream project for Nissan designers who were given free rein to create their dream supercar for their own Gran Turismo fantasy garage.

Created by a team of young designers at Nissan Design Europe, in London, the model was considered to have so much potential that it has benefited from input from an advanced engineering team based at Nissan Technical Centre in Atsugi, Japan.

As a result, Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo gives hints as to how a supercar of the future might look.

In July, automotive enthusiasts will be able to discover that performance first-hand when it becomes available to download in Gran Turismo 6, just as they did with the Nissan GT-R and Skylines from earlier episodes of the historic franchise. That performance heritage and commitment to delivering excitement for enthusiasts is why there are Nissan vehicles in the franchise.


At the Geneva Motor Show Nissan will also reinforce its command of the crossover segment, through the brand's crossover family - including the X-Trail and Qashqai.

While nothing more than a cool concept at this stage, Nissan believes that the real-world is ready for the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo. Watch this space...
