After premiering in Gran Turismo 6, Hyundai’s other-worldly N 2025 Vision GT Concept now stars in Gran Turismo Sport, the latest racing simulation from Polyphony Digital.
The car will compete in the game’s top-tier Group 1 racing class alongside a handful of other Vision Gran Turismo concepts and real-world prototype racing cars.
Although this thing is completely fictitious, the South Korean automaker did create a show car a couple of years ago. In theory, the vehicle uses a 670 hp fuel cell system and a 201 hp supercapacitor. There are also four independent electric motors driving the wheels.
Alongside Hyundai’s N 2025 Vision GT, Gran Turismo Sport also includes four racing variants of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. There are three circuit-oriented models, divided into the N Class, Group 3 Class and Group 4 Class, and then a Genesis Coupe Group B Rally Car that’s sure to excite gamers.
In a statement, chief designer at the Hyundai Design Center in Irvine, California, Chris Chapman said, “The N 2025 Vision GT is our ambitious take on what we think prototype racing could look like in the not-too-distant future. We’re thrilled to see it presented anew in one of the most visually stunning racing simulations ever created.”
