Suzuki has revealed the Vision Gran Turismo: a two-seater roadster for Gran Turismo 7. In the Vision Gran Turismo, Suzuki combines its knowledge of cars and motorcycles, which should result in a fun, lightweight package in the virtual world. There are currently no production plans.
At first glance, Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo looks like a lovable kid among an existing kid Swift Sport and Cappuccino† Swift is particularly evident in the open-seater headlights, grille and wheels design. The Vision Gran Turismo isn’t as light as a cappuccino, but at 970kg, it comes very close to the 700kg cappuccinos put in a wrap. The Vision Gran Turismo makes up for this with plenty of extra power: the system has 432 horsepower at 9700 rpm. Torque can also be present with 610 Nm.
Few road car engines run at 9700 rpm, so it should come as no surprise that the Vision Gran Turismo engine comes from Hayabusa, Suzuki’s fastest motorcycle. The four-cylinder center has a displacement of 1,340 cc and drives the rear wheels. That’s not all, because the Vision Gran Turismo has a total of three electric motors that complement the power: two on the front axle and one on the rear axle. This means that the roadster is four-wheel drive and also the reason for the higher torque. No other specs are known, but on a virtual Nürburgring you should be able to set a fast time using these specs.
There are no plans to drive the Vision Gran Turismo into production, so you’ll have to make do with the car in the game. By the way, this is not the first time that Suzuki has shown a two-seater car. In 2001, Suzuki created a model GSX-R/4 to the IAA in Frankfurt. This concept car was also powered by a block from a Hayabusa motorcycle, although the power was more modest at 175 hp.
