This year at Frankfurt Motor Show, Bugatti will showcase their full-scale show car for popular Gran Turismo auto racing game. Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo images have been released for Gran Turismo fans to enjoy. The designers got their inspiration from Bugatti’s successful racing tradition, during the 20s and 30s, Bugatti enjoyed great success in car racing. The historical theme for this virtual modern race car was particularly taken from Bugatti Type 57 Tank, its victorious in the 24-hour Le Mans race in 1937 and 1939 is unforgettable. That’s why you can see the same characteristic in this Buggatti Vision Gran Turismo with its classic blue two-tone finish, just like the winning car Type 57 G Tank in 1937. This color also evokes the colors of historical French race cars of that particular period, since then, Bugatti has been known for this iconic blue color.

Sasha Selipanov, the Head of Exterior Design Creative Development, explains that they didn’t mean to re-create a retro-style car in memory of the success in Le Mans, but they aim to transfer the feeling and mood of those special moments in Bugatti’s history to a modern vehicle. As Gran Turismo fan himself, this project is a great adventure to bring back the brand that was once so successful in racing to the virtual track. The design team wanted to create a project as realistic as possible so that Bugatti fans can enjoy real Bugatti through virtual world of PlayStation video game franchise. Each design characteristic is defined by its function, resulting a perfect symbiosis of engineering and aesthetics.
As an uncompromising race car, the interior has been designed to meet racing requirements such as indicators, displays, and controls. Each element is designed to be located just as a race-car driver expects them, easy to read and easy to reach.
The team has done a great job in designing a virtual Bugatti racing car down to the last detail and radiate the unrestricted values of the brand. Hopefully, the gamers would have fun racing the car as much as the team did when developing this Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Virtual Racing Car
