When Kazunori Yamauchi and his team released the original Gran Turismo to Japanese PlayStation owners in 1997 (1998 for the rest of the world), none of them expected it to develop the kind of following it did. But Gran Turismo (and the subsequent sequels) did develop a devout following; so devout, in fact, that more than a dozen of the world’s most recognizable brands (both automotive and non-automotive) have designed concept cars to be featured in the latest installment in the series, Gran Turismo 6, which is set to hit stores in just a couple weeks.
And it is Mercedes-Benz that has the honor of being the first to reveal its virtual dream machine for GT6. Its official name is the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, and it doesn’t just specialize in looking awesome. It also knows a thing or two about speed.
