Remember Hyundai’s stunning N 2025 Vision GT concept, revealed about two years ago? You can now take the driver’s seat behind its steering wheel and virtually drive it in Polyphony Digital’s new racing simulator, Gran Turismo Sport. The game is already available for the Playstation 4.
The Le Mans-inspired beast is the South Korean manufacturer’s entry into the game’s top racing class, Group 1, where it competes against virtual concepts from Aston Martin, Bugatti, McLaren and more.
'The N 2025 Vision GT is our ambitious take on what we think prototype racing could look like in the not-too-distant future,' said Chris Chapman, chief designer at Hyundai's US design centre. 'We’re thrilled to see it presented anew in one of the most visually stunning racing simulations ever created.'
Chapman also explains that the study is 'a point of pride for Hyundai on so many fronts – it effortlessly combines beauty and function as a racing car, and it boasts a fuel-cell powertrain that is as progressive as the bodywork wrapped around it.'
Gran Turismo Sport, dubbed 'the best and most authentic driving simulator due to true-to-life graphics, authentic physics technology, and careful attention to detail,' is already on sale and launches with 162 vehicles. Several different packages add exciting race cars – from futuristic concepts like the N 2025 Vision GT concept and SRT Tomahawk Vision GT, to classic vehicles like the 1987 Audi Sport Quattro S1 Pikes Peak.
