To finish the Gran Turismo World Finals Ferrari has finally unveiled their own Vision GT car concept. The cult brand stands for racing like no other, and with the Vision GT they are presenting a possible concept for the future.
on the occasion the premiere series creator Kazunori Yamauchi commented:
“We started the Vision GT project 9 years ago and we finally have a Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo. We are already looking forward to it. It’s been several years since I went to Maranello to meet Manzoni. A dream is now coming true and it is a very exciting moment for us.”
Ferrari started working on the Vision GT Car over two years ago. Flavio Manzoni, Senior Vice President of Design at Ferrari, adds:
“It’s very important for me and Ferrari as it foresees the future of the brand. The idea was to envision what shape the supercar of the future will take. It was not easy. It was a project involving all Ferrari departments, in particular the aerodynamics and engineering that defined the concept of this car.”
The approach followed a concept that looks like a contradiction, but it isn’t. They wanted to create something precise and sharp, but also incorporate organic elements. This contradiction makes the Vision GT Car something very special at Ferrari.
“We wanted a kind of seamless effect between the interior and exterior surfaces to create an organic object where art and science merged together,” continues Manzoni.
For the interior, the steering wheel was inspired by a video game, which you use to steer the car like a game controller. The steering wheel itself has no mechanical connection and instead uses steer-by-wire technology that creates its own force feedback for the driver, comparable to today’s racing wheels.
Beginning December 15, those who complete the Gran Turismo World Finals Viewer Campaign will have access to the Ferrari Vision GT Car. Others can do their rounds in it from December 23rd.
