As teased a few days ago, today Polyphony Digital and Audi revealed not one, but two new Vision Gran Turismo cars, that have been made available in the game via a new update.
The cars are the Audi Vision Gran Turismo and the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo. They also have one particular aspect that previous Vision GT cars did not share. They have been built in the real world, and they have been unveiled today at the Audi Driving Experience Center located just outside Ingolstadt, Germany.
They’re the first Vision GT cars to actually drive on a real-world race track.
The base model is powered by a hybrid power unit that combines a turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6 engine, which powers the rear wheels, and an electric motor that powers the front wheels. Together, they produce a total of 950 kW (1292 ps).
The e-tron model is a pure electric vehicle. With a single 200 kW motor in front and two at the rear, the Audi e-tron is rated at 600 kW (815 ps). Both cars will perform demo laps at the Formula E Rome GP on April 13th and 14th, at the Nürburgring 24-hour race, and at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
You can check out a few pictures below and have fun finding out which ones are from the game, and which from the real-world version.
Gran Turismo Sport is currently available exclusively for PS4. If you’re interested, you can grab a copy on Amazon.
