Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the car in Monte Carlo, Monaco ahead of the World Finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships.
“Lamborghini is a very young brand, and this is why we are here today to present our newest virtual vision in the form of a real model, with a highly futuristic and cool design to be enjoyed by the young generation of racing game and super sports car enthusiasts,” comments Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.
The Lambo V12 Vision GT’s mind-blowing futuristic design, built with Lamborghini’s signature DNA, was produced by Lamborghini Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The single-seater uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 in its virtual form.
The concept car’s powerful overall design is dedicated to sophisticated aerodynamics. A large wing housing a significant Y-taillight dominates the rear. All elements are designed as high-performance surfaces, integrating design and aerodynamics. The main body is disconnected from the fenders, and the hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows is inspired by the Lamborghini Marzal from 1968. The Lambo V12 Vision GT uses the typical Lamborghini Y-signature for both front lights and rear lights.
The driver enters the car from the front of the car like a jetfighter pilot would. The main driving controls are on the steering wheel. All driver information is projected virtually in front of the driver.
And for gamers, exciting news: the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo will be virtually available in the game “Gran Turismo Sport” for Sony PlayStation 4 starting in Spring 2020.
“The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo is created to provide the ultimate virtual car for young fans and gamers, who are ultra-enthusiastic about Lamborghini and its futuristic aspirations,” says Mitja Borkert, Head of Lamborghini Centro Stile. ”It is an opportunity for the design talent within Lamborghini to stretch its wings and visualize a car that, like every Lamborghini, is a head-turner and the best driving experience, but also mirrors Lamborghini’s push on future technologies, particularly in the arena of lightweight materials and hybridization.”
