Aston Martin unveiled a new addition to Gran Turismo 6 in the shape of the DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo. Developed in-house by the Design team at Aston Martin, led by Design Director Marek Reichman, DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo is a virtual GT racer that will be available for download.
Starting with nothing but the traditional ‘blank sheet of paper’ the design team and design engineers worked for six months to create the new addition to the Vision Gran Turismo stable of race cars. Created utilizing the same techniques as applied in the development of Aston Martin production sports cars – hand sketches and 3D modelling, followed by full realization in the virtual world – DP-100 provides an exceptional level of detail with a fully functioning suspension system and state-of-the-art electronics. The twin-turbo V12 mid-engined racer offers up to 800bhp for players to take to the track.
Design Director Marek Reichman said: “DP-100 has been an exciting and intensive project for the team here at Gaydon.”
Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of Gran Turismo: “When I first came face to face with this car at the Aston Martin Headquarters in Gaydon, UK, I was at a loss for words seeing the level of perfection in its design. I was surprised by the bold proposal of the car being the first midship layout model in Aston Martin history. And while it is clean and classy in design, it is also very emotional. Not only that, there was this future Aston Martin in front of me, that was so detailed it could be released on the market pretty much as is.”
