The growing popularity of automotive-inspired video games has led to British automaker McLaren to produce some formidable virtual sports cars and concepts in order to add extra layers of thrill to the gaming experience, but the Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo is more than just a virtual concept, as it aims to predict the high-performance sports car of the future.

This is why every element of the Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo has been designed with practicality in mind, including the sporty seat position that allows for maximum range of vision, something that's further aided by a glass cockpit and central seat location. As far is power is concerned, a turbocharged V8 engine offers a spectacular 1,134 horsepower and 940 pounds-feet of torque. The virtual vehicle even includes design innovations such as miniature openings around the structure for improved downforce.

The Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo virtual sports car will be introduced in the Gran Turismo Sport game on Playstation 4, but in addition to thrilling gamers, is also set to have a huge influence on the future of high-performance sports car design.
