Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo — Frankfurt
This extreme sports car was arguably the star of the entire show in Frankfurt. Designed for the popular Gran Turismo PlayStation gaming franchise, the 1:1 scale vehicle looks like it drove straight out of the video game. Bugatti designers wanted to pay homage to the brand’s legendary racing history while at the same time create something extremely modern. The result was the Vision Gran Turismo, which has elements of the already extreme Veyron, but with a considerably more aggressive look. “We wanted to develop a virtual race car for our fans, which is a genuine Bugatti down to the last detail and radiates the unrestricted values of the brand,” the designers note. “We hope that the gamers will have just as much fun racing the car as we did in developing it.”
