Really, it seems something of a surprise that this hasn't happened sooner. Lamborghini is king of the silly concepts, the Vision Gran Turismo plan encourages manufacturers to let loose and, being uniquely for a video game, can appeal to a younger audience that supercar manufacturers surely need to entice.
So welcome, at last, the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo. That's not a mistake, either, it's called the Lamborghini Lambo - Ferrari LaFerrari eat your heart out. The look is described as building on "historic Lamborghini design DNA, expanding the potential of the design language in a very futuristic way." No doubt you will have noticed the Lamborghini Y-signature lights front and rear as well as the jetfighter influence inside, but there is one feature that's probably only noted by the aficionados: the hexagonal theme in the side windows is inspired by the Lamborghini Marzal. Interestingly the V12 VGT is a single-seater, too, the driver entering from the front like a Top Gun extra, with the main controls sited on the steering wheel and driving info projected onto the windscreen.
The Lambo Vision Gran Turismo was revealed in Monte Carlo as part of the Gran Turismo World Championships event, with Stefano Domenicali saying: "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."
The Lamborghini will be available in Gran Turismo Sport from the spring; powered by the Sian FKP 37's 818hp hybrid powertrain, it should make quite the vehicle for the Tokyo Expressway, or indeed any other circuit on GT Sport. In fact, it makes you wonder: where does Vision Gran Turismo go from an 800hp, single-seat Lamborghini? Over to you...
