Jaguar announce a new electric Hypercar for Gran Turismo, another addition to the Vision Gran Turismo series.
First up, you maybe asking what does Vision Gran Turismo mean? Well, it was launched to celebrate 15 years of Gran Turismo. Car manufacturers design new Grand Touring cars which are concepts to be added to the games ever growing catalogue of cars.
Jaguar have therefore given us the news about the new virtual Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé is the next to be added to the roster, it will be made available to the Gran Turismo Sport user base at the end of November.
The car is all electric car, the three motors generating 1,005HP, 885 pound-feet or torque and is all wheel drive. It will be able to achieve 62 mph is less than two seconds and will break the 200mph barrier, fast indeed.
The styling has me thinking about the Jaguar cars of the old.
Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director, said: “This project has been completely led by our young designers and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them to create a vehicle steeped in our incredible heritage but pushing the boundaries of future design. The team have done an incredible job in creating something which is clearly identifiable as a Jaguar, inspired – but not constrained – by our iconic past.”
The cabin has a futuristic look and as you can spot in the image above, regarding the cabin Jaguar say 'The interior of the Jaguar Vision GT Coupé has been designed to fuse Jaguar’s heritage with its contemporary interior philosophy of progressive luxury, purity, driver focus, and stunningly intricate details, all of which are allowed to breathe through the simplicity of the car’s design.'
With this car being all electric should not be a surprise to some, Jaguar complete in the Forumla E series and have an all electric car in their ranks called the Ipace.
