Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo: You Can Drive It, Too

After Iso Rivolto Zagato has now another Italian carmaker delved deeper into the world of Gran Turismo Sport. The new Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo Concept was unveiled in real-life form in Monte Carlo, ahead of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships World Finals, it was created by the automaker’s Centro Stile and will launch in the popular video game next spring.

Lamborghini is a very young brand, and this is why we are here today, to present our newest vision in the form of a real model, with a highly futuristic and cool design to be enjoyed by the young generation of racing game and super sports car enthusiasts.

Stefano Domenicali, Lamborghini CEO

Retaining the Italian automaker’s DNA, the show car boasts advanced aerodynamics that have defined the sharp creases, along with the large rear wing, Y-shaped lights at both ends and hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows inspired by the 1967 Marzal concept. The front wings are disconnected from the body and the driver has to enter and exit the car from the front, much in the same way as a jet fighter pilot.

Once inside, they will be seated in the middle, on the only seat available, and will grab hold of the futuristic steering wheel. All information is projected onto the windscreen.

For power, the Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo uses the same powertrain as the Sian FKP 37. This means that it combines a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 with a mild-hybrid system for a total output of 808 HP (819 PS / 602 kW), which in the limited-run Sian allows for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in under 2.8 seconds and a top speed in excess of 217 mph (350 km/h).

Was the Iso Rivolta Zagato Vision Gran Turismo available as a limited production run, the Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo will remain a one-off….. But who knows, if you ask them friendly….

Come into the beautiful worlds of Lamborghini and Grand Turismo.

The Urus elevates the SUV to a level not previously possible, the Super SUV. 

It features a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm, maximum 6,800 rpm, and 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,250 rpm. The Urus accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12,8 seconds and with a top speed of 305 km/h it is the fastest SUV available. 

With a total surface of over 1200 square meters the new Paris showroom and service centre is the first French showroom to feature the brand’s new design. The environment dimension also reflects the need for increased space as Lamborghini expands its model line-up with the new Urus and plans to double its sales by 2019.
