For their take on the Vision Gran Turismo project, Lexus designers at the Calty Research Center took inspiration from the company’s racig activities – in particular form the Super GT GT500 Class 2014 season – and aimed at creating a car for races such as the Super GT and the Nürburgring 24 hour.
The vehicle is based on the LF-LC concept, first revealed at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show. The racing version includes a number of styling elements aimed at evoking emotions and racing passion, such as the shape of the tail lamps inspired by afterburners of a jet aircraft.
The LF-LC GT Vision Gran Turismo is planned for distribution in a free update for the PlayStation 3 exclusive title Gran Turismo 6 due to be released in spring 2015.
