Here's the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo roadster with a hybrid Hayabusa drivetrain

~GAMER Only~ As we have said in previous articles, now we will discuss about Suzuki virtual concept car. Indeed, Suzuki Motor Corporation has expertise in the manufacturing process of motorcycles and cars, and recently the Japanese manufacturer has launched a new concept car called the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo which combines the best elements of both.

As you can see, it is a lightweight all-wheel-drive virtual roadster described driven by a hybrid drivetrain consisting of Hayabusa's 1.3-liter inline four engine combined with three electric motors. In terms of design, the Suzuki Vision GT generally looks like Suzuki Swift roadster that comes with a fully roofless two-seater cabin. The Japanese automotive company said its designers were also inspired by the Cappuccino model while made the car designs, but ruled out those slight bodystyle similarities between the two.

Furthermore, the Suzuki Vision GT's front end bears a strong resemblance to the Swift Sport due to the large grille, intake bumper and aggressive fender-mounted headlights. The bonnet is a bit long for a mid-engined vehicle, while the short pillarless panoramic windshield and lack of roof contribute to the dramatic proportions. At the rear, the LED taillights somehow remind us to the Devon GTX, while a massive diffuser coupled  with twin center-mounted exhausts makes it clear that this is not an EV.

Inside, the dashboard has a fairly simple layout with screens for mirror replacement cameras on either side of the steering wheel. The latter integrates a Start/Stop button and hazard lights, a shift knob, and lots of unmarked controls. Drivers have access to a transparent digital instrument cluster and nothing else, as you don't need infotainment features in such a vehicle.

Moving to its drivetrain, this is perhaps the best part of this Suzuki concept car, by using a 1,340cc four-cylinder petrol engine sourced from the Hayabusa which is installed behind its cabin, to work together with three electric motors (two in front and one in the back). As the result, the hybrid drivetrain burst out combined output of 426 hp and 610 Nm of torque.

These numbers may not seen impressive compared to other Vision GT concepts, but it's believed the Hayabusa engine roaring will make things a lot more fun. Also, keep in mind that thanks to the adoption of  racing technology, this Suzuki concept has a weighs of 970 kg.

It should be noted, this is not the first time that Suzuki has installed the Hayabusa engine in a sports car, as we have seen before with the 2001 Suzuki GSX-R/4 concept. Unfortunately, despite being designed to follow the recipe of its predecessor, the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo was not intended for production and is likely to be stay in the digital world, only gamers can drive it.
However, we can still hope that in the future real cars will be built to be exhibited at public events such as the Tokyo Auto Show. For your info, this Suzuki's virtual roadster is part of the latest free update to Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 7 video games available for the Sony Playstation 5 console. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ID.MOTOR1 | CARSCOOPS ]
