Aston Martin unveils DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo Concept

Aston Martin has revealed the DP-100, its own interpretation of the Vision Graturimo Concept Series for the GT6 racing game, designed by the in-house styling center led by Design Director Marek Reichman.


Starting from a ‘blank sheet of paper’ the design team and design engineers worked for six months to create the Aston Martin Concept for the Vision Gran Turismo series of exclusive prototypes.

The DP-100 features an extreme, aggressive design, with a very low stance and a single, arched line that defines the whole profile of the car and is contrasted by the sharp, muscular shoulders and the front “floating” fenders.

The front end features a new interpretation of the company trademark grille, which is positioned at the very bottom right above the front splitter, and distinctive headlights shaped like NACA air intakes.

At the rear, the typical C-shaped  tail lights are mounted on floating blades that according to design director Marek Reichmancould be transferred to future production models.

The virtual powertrain features a twin-turbo V12 mid-mounted engine delivering up to 800bhp.

The concept was created using many of the same techniques as applied in the development of  Aston Martin production sports cars – hand sketches and 3D modelling, followed by full realisation in the virtual world.

The DP-100 will be available for Gran Turismo®6 (GT6™) owners to download in July 2014, following the global launch at Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Official Statements

Design Director Marek Reichman said: “DP-100 has been an exciting and intensive project for the team here at Gaydon.

“Features such as the car’s revolutionary ‘active aerodynamics’ are there not just as a way of enhancing form, but also to support the car’s function in-game.

“As with the CC100 Speedster Concept, many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that we’ll launch in the offline world so the importance of this project should not be underestimated.”

Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of Gran Turismo and President of Polyphony Digital Inc, enthused: “When I first came face to face with this car at the Aston Martin Headquarters in Gaydon, UK, I was at a loss for words seeing the level of perfection in its design. I was surprised by the bold proposal of the car being the first midship layout model in Aston Martin history. And while it is clean and classy in design, it is also very emotional. Not only that, there was this future Aston Martin in front of me, that was so detailed it could be released on the market pretty much as is.”
