Nissan have released an image of their stunning Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, a car that, up until now, has existed only in fantasy rather than reality. The car will be making it’s global debut at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed this weekend, with the covers coming off for the first time tomorrow at 13:00 on the Nissan stand.
Conceived by the team from Nissan’s European design studio in London for the latest instalment of the legendary PlayStation driving franchise, Gran Turismo®, the concept points to how a Nissan supercar of the future could look, hence the 2020 name.
Olympic cycling hero Sir Chris Hoy, now a Nissan driver and brand ambassador, will appear on the Nissan stand three times – between 11:00-11:30 and 14:30-15:00 on Friday and 14:30-15:00 on Sunday – for a Q&A session with fans.
Fellow brand ambassador, Richard Whitehead MBE – a Gold Medallist at the London 2012 Paralympic Games – and Jenny Jones, a Bronze Medallist at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, will be visiting the Nissan stand as well, as part of the brand’s inspirational #UniteAndExcite partnership with Team GB and ParalympicsGB on the Road to Rio.
Visitors will be able to experience motorsport thrills for themselves in high-tech Gran Turismo® 6 gaming pods. To complete the digital experience visitors can virtually design their own IDx concept with the Oculus Rift 3D virtual reality gaming headset that delivers mind-blowing realism.
