Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo: the design

During the Infiniti Design Night at Auto Shanghai 2015, Infiniti has presented the physical model of its Concept Vision Gran Turismo created for the GT6 game.


Available for download in GT6 on the PlayStation3 system, the Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo was created through close collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital Inc. and represents a vision of what a high performance Infiniti could look like in the future.

Below we report the behind the scenes video and the official design story.

The virtual concept car began as an ambitious global Infiniti Design competition to “design a pure Infiniti GT car,” which Infiniti’s Design team in Beijing won. Part beauty, part beast, its shape is powerful, sensual and audacious – articulating the team’s ambitious racing language for Infiniti.

The team kept to Infiniti’s design language and added some Chinese influences. The fluid movement and the delicate gradation of the body are inspired by traditional Chinese calligraphy and landscape paintings, while the character lines uninhibitedly flowing through the car reflect the dynamism of China.

Up front, the Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo sports a sharp visage and a wide grille, giving it a wild and powerful look. The curves of the fenders wrap around the tires, and the car appears ready to pounce.

The design development of the Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo started with hand sketching, then refined digitally, refined again by hand sculpting, and then returned to digital for final refinement.

“The Q80 Inspiration, the Q60 Concept and the Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo are all thematically different,” said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director. “Yet the same thread of handcrafted artistry weaves through them, and they all speak with one Infiniti design language.”
