Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept
In collaboration with the creators of the PlayStation driving series 'Gran Turismo', Mercedes-Benz has introduced its 'AMG Vision Gran Turismo' sports car, featuring the brand's signature gull wing doors and curved silhouette.
Presented at the LA Auto Show earlier this week, the concept boasts a 577 horsepower, 5.5 litre, v8 twin turbo engine – pretty impressive. The vehicle's façade pays homage to classic competition cars with features that include the use of trigger catches to fasten both the bonnet and rear hatch.
Furthermore, the shape of the front grille references the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL and is made entirely from LEDs, lighting up independently in a variety of patterns and sequences. And if that wasn't enough, sound designers for AMG have come up with a specially tuned exhaust for the eight independent exhaust pipes, which have been integrated into the taillight. Game on.
