Aston Martin Reveals DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo [VIDEO]
Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo Concept has just been unveiled not only with a series of pictures but with an exclusive video. They all show the detailed design of the car, which will be available from July for all those who have the latest Gran Turismo6 (GT6) racing game on the PlayStation3 platform. The car is in the shape of a Design Prototype 100, or simply – DP-100. The development of the vehicle was in-house. The design team at Aston Martin began from scratch and via hand sketches and 3D modelling, they've managed to create this unique concept.
After that, the car was got a full realisation in the virtual world. It took them six months too finalize the project. As you can see the DP-100 provides great levels of detail. It features fully functioning suspension system and state-of-the-art electronics.
Exclusive feature here are the revolutionary "active aerodynamics". They are not only a way of enhancing, but also support car's function in the game. Other design cue visible in DP-100 is the light blade rear lamps.
And while the car features clean and classy in design, it has a powerful potential hidden at its rear. DP-100 not only looks beautiful but also includes a high degree of engineering integrity. It is powered by the twin-turbo V12 which produces up to 800 hp (588 kW). This ensures exhilarating performance fully in resonance with the high octane nature of the game.
And we can only regret that this is a virtual-only GT racer. However, it has the full potential to become a real one.
