McLaren Ultimate Vision GT gives totally different driving sensation

As a result of collaboration with the developer of 'Gran Turismo Sport' racing game on the PlayStation 4 platform, McLaren recently launched the concept of a virtual hypercar that was named "McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo."

These hypercar concept is the answer to the request of the famous Gran Turismo game maker, Kazunori Yamamuchi who asked McLaren to make a unique car to be displayed in his newest racing game.

Although made for games, the Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo is a representation of the McLaren car design in 2030 that focuses on the driver.

"This car is an expression of the McLaren's design pillar and is a vision that we have planned for 2030 in the future." said Rob Melville, McLaren Design Director.

In terms of design, the Ultimate Vision GT looks not very different from other future hypercar. However, McLaren did not design it just like that. In every side attached to this car has its own function which makes the driving experience even stronger. This principle itself can be seen from its revolutionary cockpit design.

The cockpit design of this car has a wide enough glass which allowed the driver to see more clearly in all directions. At first glance there might be nothing strange with this virtual McLaren hypercar. But if we take a closer look, the Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo has a driver position that is arguably ... quite strange. How not, instead of sitting as on the most cars, these car's driver must drive with the body in prone position and the heads up.

McLaren implemented this revolutionary system not without reason. According to them, the cabin design aims to allow the driver to pass the apex (bend) quickly and precisely. This revolutionary cockpit system itself claimed by McLaren can save the fraction of a seconds needed for each round.

Then the Ultimate Vision GT is also equipped with a super sophisticated aerodynamic design system called Active Aero. This system allows this car to get the best higher downforce when cornering with an open-air vent system.

This super-sophisticated cockpit and aerodynamic system is equipped with high-performance twin-turbo 4.0L V8 engine to drive the rear wheels, while for each of front wheel is driven by an electric motor.
As a result, this car is capable of releasing the power up to 1,134 hp and torque of 1,275 Nm. Thus it is not surprising that this hypercar became the fastest car in the Gran Turismo Sport game. Do You want to try it? Let's play and be the number one! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]
