PostHeaderIcon Turn 10 Studios Releases Full Car List and Soundtrack for Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon is a fun franchise, breaking from its sim-based Forza Motorsport sister game as a more arcadey open-world environment where you can live out your dream of driving like a maniac on public roads in a totally consequence-free manner. The latest fourth installment is due out early next month, and now, developer Turn 10 Studios is giving us the rundown on the cars and the songs slated for release.

Forza Motorsport 7 is getting a new update today, which adds a range of cool sports cars. The highlight of this update is the Porsche 917/20 race car that wore the weird but iconic “Pink Pig” livery at the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans. The original “Pink Pig” is offered in the game only weeks after the livery made a memorable comeback at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, winning the GT class.

PostHeaderIcon You’re Not Going to Run Out of Cars to Drive in Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon 4 isn’t scheduled to release until later this year, but a mistake by the game’s developer accidentally revealed a massive list of more than 450 cars that will be included in the game. The developer faux pas isn’t expected to cause much of an issue other than pre-emptively revealing the car contents of a game that’s still several months away from launching.

PostHeaderIcon Forza Horizon 4 Gets the Green Light, Launches This Fall

Forza Motorsports’ long history of top-shelf racing games will add another member to the family with the arrival of Forza Horizon 4. The new title will be developed by U.K.-based Playground Games. It will offer the usual stunning characteristics of past Forza titles, including over 450 cars from more than 100 licensed automakers. Forza Horizon 4 will be launched on the Xbox One and PC platforms this coming October.

Part of what makes Turn 10 Studios’ Forza 7 car packs so interesting is the menu of cars that each of these packs offer. Some of the more recent car packs have included beauties like Bugatti Chiron, Kia Stinger, and a 1984 Nissan Bluebird Silhouette, complete with Coca-Cola livery all over it. The games new car pack, called the “K1Speed,” offers a similar kind of automotive diversity. It’s got iconic race cars from yesteryear, a high-performance Italian SUV, and a Honda Odyssey. Yep, a Honda Odyssey.

PostHeaderIcon NASCAR’s eSports Venture Could Be a Real Thing

Is NASCAR about the jump aboard the digital gaming craze? That looks to be the case after a report from The SportsBusiness Journal revealed the racing series’ plans to finalize an eSports venture. Nothing has been confirmed at the moment, but the report indicated that NASCAR is in the final stages of hammering out a venture that would lay the foundation for NASCAR-themed video game race competitions during race weekends this season.

“It’s actually surprising that a popular racing series like NASCAR has not yet capitalized on the eSports craze”

It’s actually surprising that a popular racing series like NASCAR has not yet capitalized on the eSports craze. The industry has turned into a billion-dollar behemoth that has attracted millions of players from all over the world, playing organized, multi-player video game competitions against each other.

In other words, it’s the perfect venue for NASCAR to not only attach its name to a booming industry, but also expand its reach to a younger demographic that doesn’t count itself as a fan of the sport. It’s a good thing that NASCAR is doing it now, though, because eSports is still ascending as a business. According to the report, an announcement could be made in the coming days, possibly after the season-opening Daytona 500 race on February 18.

The exact details of NASCAR’s eSports venture are still unknown, but it is believed to be based on starting two different tournaments, specifically iRacing and the “NASCAR Heat” franchise. The latter is the series’ official video game franchise for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows via Steam. The second installment, NASCAR Heat 2, had its release date last September 2017 so it’s still new enough as a game to build an eSports tournament around it. For its part, iRacing is a subscription-based racing simulator that’s seen as a more advanced and technical offering that can cater to hardcore gamers and actual racers themselves.

“Logistically, the events are expected to be held during race weekends”

Logistically, the events are expected to be held during race weekends. That part of the plan appears to be in place because both the International Speedway Corp. and Speedway Motorsports Inc., are involved in the discussions. Together, the two companies own 20 race tracks and venues in the NASCAR calendar. The involvement of the three independently owned tracks — Dover International Speedway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Pocono Raceway — are still unclear, but if this eSports venture is to see a green light, they probably need to get on board with the plan so the competition can build a full schedule for the whole season.

Cross your fingers that we get to see this project come to fruition. I’m a fair-weather fan when it comes to eSports, but the addition of a NASCAR-owned tournament will raise my interest in the business.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Already Drive The Cool Hyundai Veloster N in Forza Motorsport 7

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Hyundai Veloster N is the first high-performance vehicle that the Korean brand will bring to the U.S. But it won’t become available in American showrooms until the fourth quarter of 2018. However, you can already drive the beefed-up hatchback, alongside the Veloster Turbo model, in Forza Motorsport 7 starting January 16.


“Both cars have joined the official roster of drivable vehicles in the game for Xbox and Windows 10 as part of a free downloadable content pack”

Both cars have joined the official roster of drivable vehicles in the game for Xbox and Windows 10 as part of a free downloadable content pack. As with all cars in Forza Motorsport 7, once the Veloster N is in your garage, you can customize it with new wheels, powertrain and suspension upgrades, bespoke tunes, and unique paint schemes and racing liveries. Additional Veloster-related in-game features, including Rivals events, will be unveiled in the future.

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Veloster N follows in the footsteps of the i30 N with aerodynamic and design upgrades on the outside and a new engine under the hood. The Hatchback packs a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet and uses a six-speed manual transmission, a fully independent suspension, and a performance braking system. The non-N version gets a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle unit with 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet in base guise and the previous 2.0-liter turbo with 201 horses and 195 pound-feet in its Turbo version.

PostHeaderIcon Grand Theft Auto Online Now Has a Flying DeLorean Lookalike

When it comes to having an inventory of officially licensed cars, Grand Theft Auto will never be confused for Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport. Whereas the latter two take great lengths to license every car in the history of the world, GTA doesn’t do that sort of thing. Instead, it relies on its imagination and a few made-up names to bring some of the world’s most iconic cars to life. Take the DeLorean, for example. Grand Theft Auto Online’s latest update is called “the Doomsday Heist,” and it includes a flying car called the Imponte Deluxo that looks a hell of a lot like the Dr. Emmett Brown’s DeLorean.

Because Grand Theft Auto doesn’t feature licensed names, the Imponte Deluxo is what we get. I don’t know the etymology of the name, but that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is that it looks like a DeLorean and, more importantly, functions like the one Dr. Brown had in the Back to the Future movies, including the ability to actually take to the skies.

If that’s not cool enough, the Doomsday Heist trailer also includes a fleet of James Bond’s Lotus Esprit submarine. Ok, so they’re not exactly the same ones used by 007 in the 1977 movie The Spy Who Loved Me, but they are uncanny in their resemblance to the movie version.

By my count, that’s two of the most iconic Hollywood cars in one GTA update. I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t played Grand Theft Auto in a while, but after watching this trailer of The Doomsday Heist update, I may be compelled to dust off the game and see what it has to offer. Since the update is not a form of downloadable content, it’s free and available to procure as long as you have access to the world of GTA Online.

PostHeaderIcon Forza 7’s New Car Pack Opens The Gate To The World Of 4K

As the gaming world continues to lose its collective mind over the release of the Xbox One X, Turn 10 Studios is driving up the ante even more with the release of a new car pack for Forza Motorsport 7. Fittingly enough, the car pack is called “Samsung QLED TV,” which just so happens to run on 4K technology. Nice cross-promotion there, Microsoft.

Before I start deviating away from the topic at hand and weep over the spectacle that is 4K viewing, the car pack features a new set of cars that gamers can pluck into Forza 7, joining the hundreds upon hundreds of automobiles that are already available in the game. The pack comes with a mixed bag of characters, err cars, spanning different types and generations. Those who are into some modern machinery can now enjoy the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the 2017 Abarth 124 Spider in the game while those who prefer the rough and rugged side of their Forza 7 experience can now play a 2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy truck or a Toyota Land Cruiser Arctic Truck AT37. Finally, there are also classic racers included in the pack for those who want some nostalgia to come with their gaming experience, specifically a 1957 Maserati 250F, a 1978 Porsche 935/78, and a 1984 Nissan Bluebird Super Silhouette, complete with Coca-Cola livery all over it.

All seven vehicles make up a pretty diverse car pack. It’s certainly no coincidence that the pack is being made available at exactly the same time as the release of the 4K-capable Xbox One X and the subsequent 4K update available for Forza 7. The long update process if by far the biggest headache of the launch, but once it’s up and running, there’s really no turning back. Forza 7 in native 4K is like playing with real cars, except that you’re on a couch using game controllers. It’s pretty easy to imagine why a lot of people are probably going to be stuck on their couches this coming weekend.

PostHeaderIcon Apparently, Gran Turismo Sport Sucks

How unfair and cruel this world is… Gran Turismo Sport is the biggest letdown since Bill Clinton got some dome in the oval office. Seriously, this game flat out sucks. Sure, the graphics are good, but you would have thought that game makers would have learned from the Need for Speed reboot – no matter how badly you want it to work, strictly online car games aren’t going to happen. We don’t like them. In fact, we hate them. It’s annoying. Sure, maybe we’ll play online and race some folks on occasion, but we want a legitimate campaign, especially for a racing SIMULATOR not just some random driving\car game. It just doesn’t make sense. The guys over at Polyphony Digital should have known better, but oh no, you had to go and slaughter one of the best and most legendary titles out there. And to think, I went out and bought a PS4 for this piece of crap.

Okay, so that was a bit of a rant, but I mean, come on… The hype was real…. The feeling we got when we saw the trailers was real…. Now, we know it was all for nothing. Such a letdown and now the Gran Turismo name will be forever slandered because of this crap. Con artistry at its best – get us all hyped up, then deliver us some online-based game that is just embarrassing. There’s no car customization, VR mode doesn’t even give you points and is only you against one other car — JUST ONE — and the “Campaign Mode” is just your training and license tests that you have to take to race online, which you probably don’t want to do anyway.

Sony Interactive should be embarrassed, Polyphony Digital should be embarrassed, and Sony should be begging other platforms to take on Gran Turismo Sport as well because this game is going to do nothing for that exclusive games list the execs rub their nipples to every night. Don’t want to take my word for it, check out my screenshots of the Amazon reviews below, then go look at them all for yourself. Don’t waste your money.

PostHeaderIcon Care to get a Mazda MX-5 to go with Your Copy of Gran Turismo Sport?

Gran Turismo Sport has officially gone live so expect a few busy weekends ahead over here at the TopSpeed office. For those who haven’t gotten their copies yet, it’s important to remember that you can buy the game in a number of bundle options, including a Limited Edition version here in the U.S. that adds a metal case, several Group B rally cars, a couple of unlocked prototype cars, and 1 million credits. That’s a pretty nice offer, but it’s nothing compared to the Gran Turismo Sport Super Bundle that’s being offered in Taiwan. That package not only comes with a Sony Bravia 4K HDR OLED TV and an assortment of other goodies, it also comes with a special edition Mazda MX-5 Miata that’s all dressed up in a Soul Red paint finish.

That’s right. An actual MX-5 is included in the Super Bundle. It’s not exactly as insane as the Grid 2: Mono Edition that came with a BAC Mono dressed in a GRID 2 livery, but it’s certainly a big step up from the 1:43 scale Nissan GT-R Spec V that Gran Turismo 5 came in a few years ago. Should any of our friends in Taiwan avail of this bundle, they also stand to get a PlayStation 4 Pro, Playstation VR, a year of the PlayStation Plus online multiplayer service, a Thrustmaster T-GT steering wheel controller, and an Apiga AP1 racing seat just in case your couch doesn’t feel real enough. The downside to getting that treasure chest’s worth of goodies is that the Super Bundle doesn’t come cheap. The cost of one is just under $1.4 million NTD, which converts to around $46,000. Still interested?

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

Is the Gran Turismo Sport Super Bundle a good buy?

“The cost of one is just under $1.4 million NTD, which converts to around $46,000”

I guess it depends on who you ask. If money’s not a problem, then it’s something that’s worth buying, if only for the fact that you’ll be able to say that you did. Unfortunately for us here in the U.S., the Super Bundle is not available in this market though that doesn’t mean that there’s no chance to actually get one. You just have to be creative in doing it.

See, all the items included in the bundle are available in the US individually. Piece them all together, and you get a cost estimate of something like this:

Item Price ($)
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro $399.99
Playstation VR $299.99
Sony Bravia 65-inch 4K HDR OLED TV $3,999.99
Thrustmaster T-GT steering wheel controller $149.99
Apiga AP1 racing seat $389.99
Mazda MX-5 Miata (M/T) with Soul Red paint finish $26,090

Care to get a Mazda MX-5 to go with Your Copy of Gran Turismo Sport? - image 739263

Do the math on those prices, and you’re looking at a total price of about $31,330. That’s about $14,700 less than what our Taiwanese friends will have to pay to buy the Super Bundle. I don’t know about any of you guys, but that’s what I call a better deal.

Whatever bundle you get, Gran Turismo Sport should be packed with excitement

Ultimately, it really doesn’t matter what bundle you get as long as you get Gran Turismo Sport. I understand the temptation of taking home an MX-5, but the game itself is the highlight here. The game itself is packed to the brim with cars (over 700 of ‘em!), race tracks, city circuits, and the best and newest in car racing video game technology.

Don’t miss out on the game because it’s already shaping up to be one of the best ones in the franchise’s long and rich history.

And again, if any of our friends in Taiwan get the Super Bundle, please let us know about it!

PostHeaderIcon Finally! Gran Turismo Sport is Upon Us: Videos, Car Lists, and More!!

Microsoft Xbox has the Forza franchise, and Sony PlayStation has the Gran Turismo franchise, both of which sit at the top of the racing sim hierarchy of their respective platforms. Well, this week, an all-new Gran Turismo is finally about to hit PlayStation consoles, and it’s quite possibly the best Gran Turismo game to come out of the title’s 20-year run. And, that’s saying a lot as the game has done pretty well in living up to its “the real driving simulator” slogan. Over the years the game has gotten more realistic and downright sexy as far as graphics and car availability goes, but it still never took into account things like safety – it’s kind of hard to be concerned with driver safety when you’re sitting behind a TV driving energy drinks and eating chips, am I right? – but this time around, the company developing the game (Polyphony Digital) seems to be filling in the games that Sony Interactive Entertainment and Arsys Software left over the years.

With that said, it’s been a long time coming, and I’m just as excited for this game to hit shelves as I was Forza 7 and the Horizons sub-franchise. So far, Sony has been nice enough to release a limited trial of the game – it seems almost record-breaking as it attracted more than 1 million downloads – and a few videos that include the release date trailer, the gameplay trailer, a trailer for Interlagos Circuit, a tribute video for 20 years of GT, and a video to showcase the cars that have been announced so far. Speaking of cars, we’ve got the updated list (as of October 4th) in place for you below, along with links back to all of the reviews for each real-life model we have on hand. On top of that, we’ve got images of as many cars from Sport that we could get our hands on to go with all of the aforementioned videos. So, what are you waiting for, click the “continue reading” button and get ready for the game to launch!!!

.

In 2013, Mercedes-Benz launched the AMG Vision Gran Turismo, a retro-inspired supercar developed for the launch of the Gran Turismo 6 video game. It was the first Vision GT car ever made and started a big thing that saw all major automakers bring their own concepts into the game. In all, no fewer than 21 Vision cars were unveiled for the Gran Turismo 6 until 2016. These came from 16 different carmakers, including BMW, Volkswagen, Aston Martin, Chevrolet, Mazda, Lexus, and SRT. Come 2017, and we’ve already seen five concepts unleashed for the new Gran Turismo Sport game, the latest of which is the Peugeot L750 R Hybrid.

The second Vision Gran Turismo concept coming from Peugeot, the L750 R HYbrid is actually an evolution of the L500 R HYbrid that saw the light of the Gran Turismo day in 2016. The new concept car has a more aggressive exterior with upgraded aerodynamics, as well as a more powerful hybrid drivetrain. The L750 R HYbrid is available for all 17 locations and many tracks in the Gran Turismo Sport video game and can be customized in any color. You can also enter the car in a 24-hour race on Twitter if you’re into getting retweets for each lap driven.

Exterior


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737159
“Setting the new car apart from the old one is the redesigned splitter”

Essentially a more aggressive version of the L500 R HYbrid, the L750 concept is identical to its virtual predecessor save for the redesigned aerodynamic package and the new livery. The front fascia is just as aggressive, featuring a V-shaped nose and boomerang-shaped headlamps that flank the lion badge. Setting the new car apart from the old one is the redesigned splitter, which is slightly larger, and the wings placed on each side of the bumper.

Onto the sides, there are two major upgrades to talk about. First, the new concept has a roof scoop, which in real life would enhance engine cooling. Second, the game car rides on forged magnesium wheel, which shave a few pounds of the previous concept.


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737168
“The L750 sports a huge wing for enhanced downforce, a feature you won't see on the L500”

The similarities between the old and the new concept cars continue around back, where both vehicles employ the same V-shaped decklid and diffuser with the center mounted brake lights at the center. This design reminds me of boat-tail style cars from the 1930s, although I have a feeling this wasn’t Peugeot’s aim.

Anyway, the L750 gets a huge wing for enhanced downforce, a feature you won’t see on the L500. The livery is also new, combining various shades of gray and silver with red and blue stripes. Like most race cars recently introduced by Peugeot, the L750 features “Red Bull” and “Total” logos. On the front hood, a checkered pattern rounds off the spectacular livery.

Interior

“The layout is as extreme as they get and looks as if inspired by a spaceship”

There are no photos or information about the interior, but this isn’t surprising given this concept car was created for a video game. However, Peugeot did launch interior renderings of the previous concept car and we can have a look at that to find out more about the L750.

The layout is as extreme as they get and looks as if inspired by a spaceship. There’s only one seat at the center and everything looks to be made of carbon-fiber, including the red painted seat. The steering wheel too is made from lightweight materials and looks more like a controller rather than a conventional wheel. But this is far from surprising given that this concept was designed with racing in mind.

“Arguably the most interesting features are the holographic projectors located at the front of the cockpit”

Arguably the most interesting features are the holographic projectors located at the front of the cockpit. According to Peugeot, they display vital information about the car’s performance and the track ahead, as well as a detailed map. A HUD from the future if you will.

Given that the French carmaker had nothing to say about the L750’s cockpit, it’s safe to assume that no changes were made to the L500 design. Which is actually pretty cool since the previous concept was already as futuristic as they get.

Drivetrain


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737163
“Output has been increased from 500 to 750 horsepower in the new Vision Gran Turismo car”

It’s a bit weird to talk about a drivetrain in a car that only exists in a video game, but Peugeot insists that the L750 features a high-performance hybrid under the shell. This was also the case with the L500, but output has been increased for the new Vision Gran Turismo car. Specifically, while the L500’s gasoline engine was rated at 270 (virtual) horsepower, the L750 hits Gran Turismo Sport tracks with 580 horses at its disposal. In addition, it has an electric motor that cranks out 170 horsepower with the help of a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. The L500 had a similar layout, but with two motors, each rated at 115 horses.

Total output in the L750 is estimated at 750 horsepower, a 250-horsepower increase over the L500. In addition to being more powerful, the L750 is also 385.8 pounds lighter, tipping the scales at 1,818.8 pounds. Now that’s quite a impressive power-to-weight ratio, too bad this car doesn’t exist in real life…


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737158
“The L750 will be able to hit 62 mph from a standing start in 2.4 seconds”

Peugeot says that the L750 will be able to hit 62 mph from a standing start in 2.4 seconds. In the Gran Turismo Sport video game, obviously. That’s a tenth-second quicker than the L500, which is a bit disappointing given the significantly lighter car and the 50-percent power bump.

Other specs listed by the French maker include a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox, an engine and transmission assembly mounted on the rear axle, a dual-circuit hydraulic braking system with four ventilated carbon disc brakes, and independent suspension all around.

Conclusion


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737160

While I’m not a big fan of Gran Turismo and virtual vehicles don’t really turn me on, it’s actually great that automakers go through all the trouble to create these Vision Gran Turismo concepts. Most of them may not exist in real life and their drivetrain specs are usually of the “here’s a nice dream we had last night” variety, but the video game industry is now big enough to make these efforts worthwhile. Hopefully some of the technology inside Vision cars will make it into production models at some point.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo Concept

In all the years that the Vision Gran Turismo concepts have been around, McLaren has been one of the few automakers that have yet to unveil a concept for the Gran Turismo video game franchise. It was only a matter of time before it did, and that time has finally come. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo, and it is positively spectacular.

It is a bit ironic, though, that the most extreme McLaren I’ve ever seen isn’t actually a real thing. This coming from an automaker that’s known for releasing some mind-bending machinery over the years. That’s just the catch of all these Vision Gran Turismo concepts. They are created exclusively for the Gran Turismo game franchise and without any real-world rules and regulations to hinder them, these automakers go to great lengths to make their concepts as unforgettable as possible. That’s evidently the case here with McLaren’s Ultimate VGT concept. It’s prepared to be a showcase of the kind of cars the company envisions it’s going to produce by 2030. Not that I’m getting excited, but the LMP1-style treatment to the concept does make me wonder if this is the kind of future we can expect. Seeing as it’s already capable of zany creations like the MSO-designed X1 Concept, I wouldn’t put it past these guys to turn this concept into reality 13 years from now. For now, all we can do is enjoy it once Gran Turismo Sport hits shelves in October.

Exterior


2017 McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo Concept - image 732855

If there ever was a Vision Gran Turismo concept that looks too good to be true, this has to be it. One look at the McLaren Ultimate VGT and you know that it was created with one purpose in mind: showcase the future.

“One look at the McLaren Ultimate VGT and you know that it was created with one purpose in mind: showcase the future.”

In typical VGT fashion, the McLaren Ultimate followed the function trumps form motto. The exterior, in particular, was designed with aerodynamics placed as top priority. The free-flowing body is devoid of a bummer as the car’s sharp nose is connected to the lip spoiler by two carbon fiber bars. The wheel arches are massive and take the shape of an eye of all things. The teardrop-style cabin is a sign of the present getting a futuristic application, as does the fin that extends from the roof of the car to the rear section. A massive spoiler is also a prominent item in the concept and it’s worth noting how part of the taillight setup is actually integrated in. Massive diffusers complete the aerodynamic design and if you noticed, the exhausts are actually on the side of the car, hiding in plain sight just on the rear wheel arches.

In keeping with its tradition of being different from the rest, McLaren went some lengths to present the Ultimate VGT in three different configurations: Performance, Ulterior, and Noir. Each version comes with a different livery, although the colors don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things since the concept looks stunning in it of itself.

“McLaren went some lengths to present the Ultimate VGT in three different configurations: Performance, Ulterior, and Noir”

Altogether, the McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo Concept tips the scales at just 1,000 kilos (2,200 pounds). By comparison, the McLaren P1 GTR checks in at 1,400 kilos (3,086 pounds). If the Ultimate VGT is around today, it’s safe to say that it automatically ascends to the top of McLaren’s hierarchy as the lightest, fastest, and most powerful car the automaker has. Sadly, that’s not going to happen for at least another 13 years, should McLaren go that route in the first place.

Interior


2017 McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo Concept - image 732856

We don’t get to see a clear shot of the interior so we’re going to have to rely on McLaren design director Rob Melville to walk us through its interpretation of the McLaren Ultimate VGT concept’s interior. According to Melville, McLaren didn’t just want to design an interior with a standard layout. That would be unbecoming of the whole philosophy of the Vision Gran Turismo exercise. Instead, it played with a seating configuration wherein the driver is positioned in the center of the chassis, lying on his stomach instead of sitting down.

“McLaren played with a seating configuration wherein the driver is positioned in the center of the chassis, lying on his stomach instead of sitting down”

Think of it in the terms of how motorcycle riders are positioned, head far forward, extending almost right above the front axle. Not only is this cutting-edge for a car, I imagine that it’s also going to be the subject of plenty of safety and regulatory hearings. The cabin of the concept is also snug and tight, or as Melville describes it, “shrink-wrapped” around the driver. It’s hard to imagine what that interior is going to look like but that’s a testament to how above-and-beyond McLaren went into designing its VGT concept.

Drivetrain


2017 McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo Concept - image 732852

Unlike some Vision Gran Turismo concepts, McLaren Ultimate VGT covers a lot of ground in terms of information. It even has a powertrain – a 4.0-liter biturbo V-8 engine from the McLaren 720S – that combines with electric motors to develop 1,150 horsepower and 940 pound-feet of torque. Since this is an exercise in imagination, it’s hard to argue against the output McLaren decided to give to its Ultimate VGT concept. It could just as well be double that to 2,300 horsepower and 1,880 pound-feet of torque and we’d be just as impressed by it.

“1,150 ponies and 940 pound-feet of torque is impressive for a car that looks the part of a futuristic performance car”

Okay, that’s not true. 2,300 horsepower is aviation-type power. I can’t imagine any automaker getting to that level in 13 years without having to jump through hoops to make it happen. Still, 1,150 ponies and 940 pound-feet of torque is impressive for a car that looks the part of a futuristic performance car.

We normally don’t put this section on VGT concepts, but I’ll make an exception this time because of the number of other Vision Gran Turismo concepts that have been prepared in similar fashion. Take the Hyundai N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo, for example. It’s a lot like the McLaren Ultimate VGT in terms of futuristic styling. It has elements of LMP1 in it too, namely a pointy nose with radical aerodynamic features, fender-mounted side mirrors, an aviation-inspired canopy, a massive fin that extends from the cabin all the way back to the rear fascia, and a large wheel arches housing lightweight wheel. On the power front, Hyundai’s VGT concept features a fuel cell system that produces 871 horsepower and an undisclosed amount of torque. It’s not as powerful as the McLaren Ultimate VGT, but it certainly looks the part of a car that can give it everything it can handle.

SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo

2015 SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo - image 632378

It’s still one of my favorite Vision Gran Turismo concepts and even with the arrival of the McLaren Ultimate VGT, I’d probably still side with the Tomahawk. The wide stance and low-slung roof are massively appealing. The air intakes and the overdose in active aeros make it a true car of the future that uses advanced versions of present-day technology. It’s a good design cocktail that SRT mixed, but what I really like about the Tomahawk is the number of variants it came with, each coming with different amounts of power from the same 7.0-liter V-10 engine. There’s the “entry-level” S variant producing 1,007 horsepower and a top speed of 250 mph, the “GTS-R” variant that peaks at 1,450 horsepower with a pneumatic system in tow, and the “X” version that’s sitting on 2,590 horsepower, good enough to propel the car to a top speed of 404 mph.

Conclusion


2017 McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo Concept - image 732854

The first rule of writing about Vision Gran Turismo concepts is to not get caught up on any of them. They all look great from a design perspective with some even boasting of insane levels of power to hammer home the point of their concept nature. That’s what I’m getting from the McLaren Ultimate VGT. The design of the car is outlandish in a great way and the whole philosophy of the interior is just as mind-boggling.

In other words, the Mclaren Ultimate VGT is a mental piece of machinery, exactly like what most Vision Gran Turismo concepts should be.

  • Leave it
    • Unlikely to hit production anytime in the near or far future
    • Motorcycle-style sitting position sounds weird
    • It’s not my favorite Vision Gran Turismo concept

PostHeaderIcon Zagato’s Vision Gran Turismo Concept Looks All Sorts Of Sexy

Ever since the Vision Gran Turismo exercise sprung to life in 2013, automakers from all over the world have taken full advantage of the opportunity to showcase their imaginations on designing revolutionary cars for Sony’s Gran Turismo video racing game franchise. We’ve seen, quite literally, 30 or more cars with the Vision Gran Turismo label, each one seemingly more audacious than the one before it. Suffice it to say; it’s been an overwhelmingly successful exercise for all parties concerned, including the latest automaker to join in on the fun: Zagato. The Italian design house will be in debuting its first stab at a VGT concept, and as far as teasers go, it’s already showing off quite a handful of jaw-dropping bits.

The concept is officially called the Zagato IsoRivolta Vision Gran Turismo Concept and, as the name implies, it’s essentially a homage to the Iso Rivolta, a sports car that was in production in the 60’s. It’s still unclear how Zagato managed to pay tribute to the old Rivolta with the concept seeing as the car is only showing a glimpse of its body. But, as far as teasing goes, this slight pulling up of the skirt reveals way more than we could have hoped. Those bulging wheel arches, in particular, not only look daunting, but they extend seamlessly straight into the front bumper on one side and into the body on the other. Harder to see from this angle is the front section of the car, though we do get to see a sharp nose, thin headlights, and a small canard just in front of wheels. The full reveal of the Zagato IsoRivolta Vision Gran Turismo Concept takes place on October 18, giving us five weeks to speculate on what kind of sexy piece of machinery is hiding underneath that cover.

PostHeaderIcon Forza Motorsport 7 Is Literally Next-Generation Gaming: Video

We already know what to expect from Forza Motorsport 7. Or do we? That question may not be answered until we all get our hands on the game later this year, but Forza creative director Bill Giese isn’t waiting until October 3 (or November 7 for those who have the Xbox One X) to get the game’s hype train rolling. Speaking with IGN at Gamescom 2017 in Cologne, Germany, Giese touched on several important items about the game that’s already making us giddy for Forza 7 to hit shelves.

Among the most important announcements that caught our attention is Giese’s admission that experiencing Forza 7 at its best requires the all-new Xbox One X, thanks to its much faster processing power over the Xbox One, as well as true 4K resolution. Basically, you’re going to need an Xbox One X and a 4K TV to really immerse yourselves into the world of Forza 7. Giese even says that playing Forza 7 on the Xbox One X at native 4K at 60 FPS really opens up the richness of the racing environment that Turn 10 Studios created. Think it can’t get any more real than what the Xbox One provides? Well, according to Giese, playing the game on the One X allows you see even the tiniest of details in crystal clear resolution. Imagine the people in the stands having actual faces and moving like real people. Better yet, imagine the bits and pieces of rock on the asphalt or the patches of grass as your cars drive by. They can all be seen in 4K resolution.

Add all of this to the fact that Forza 7 has over 700 cars at its disposal, including the largest collection of Ferrari cars in the history of video game racing franchises and the addition of Porsche into the fold, and you have a game that’s already living up to the hype, even if it’s still two months away from releasing.
