Nissan’s 2020 Vision Gran Turismo Concept Comes Back Home [w/Video]

Nissan’s 2020 Vision Gran Turismo concept looks even more intimidating in the metal

If you ever wondered how a Japanese supercar killer looks like, well, here it is. Developed by Nissan together with Polyphony Digital Inc. for the Gran Turismo video game, this striking concept just might be the most hardcore materialization of a Nissan design ever.

It’s low, long and wide proportions and style cues, reminiscent of the current-gen GT-R, confirms that this concept is an exaggerated, performance-hungry evolution of the almighty Godzilla – the car, not the monster. Mind you, the automobile is show-worthy only, as it isn’t functional and it doesn’t appear to have an interior.

Sporting a new, sharp, upgraded look for the Tokyo Motor Show, the car features a more exciting “Fire Knight” red body color – the original concept was gray – and a slightly revised version of Nissan’s signature V-grille.

Complementing the car’s matte hue are the exposed carbon-fiber bits, which were generously used, especially at the back. There’s no denying that the back-end of the car is the most eye-protruding part of the concept, but the immense diffuser and huge central-exhaust are there to emphasize the Vision’s sporty nature.

This European-designed study likely previews Nissan’s future plans with the GT-R, albeit the final product won’t look as striking as this thing does. Still, it makes us wonder whether or not the future GT-R will evolve into a full-on supercar by 2020.
