McLaren creates new hypercar concept just for Gran Turismo Sport
The McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo is a concept created specifically for the PlayStation 4's Gran Turismo Sport.
McLaren claims this car gives us a hint as to its design and technological aspirations through 2030.
Powering the rear wheels is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, while electric motors provide juice to each front wheel.
Net output is a solid 1,134 horsepower and 940 pound-feet of torque.
Its curb weight is just 2,200 pounds.
It's basically a Miata with about eight times the usual power. Okay.
Tiny apertures around the body can open and close to create drag or downforce exactly when and where it's needed.
The seating position isn't anything like a modern hypercar -- the driver will lay flat on his or her stomach.
The brakes are mounted centrally, which reduces unsprung mass.
The McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo will be available when Gran Turismo Sport launches on the PS4 on October 17, 2017.
