Drive in Style: Bvlgari's Luxury Hypercar Hits Gran Turismo

Virtual Beauty - It's a pleasure to delve into the realm of virtual racing once again, exploring the fantastical world of cars crafted exclusively for the exhilarating races within the Gran Turismo gaming universe on Sony Playstation. After the debut of the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo in late 2022, stepping into the virtual racing scene is the distinguished brand, Bvlgari, known for its expertise in jewelry, luxury watches, and other essential products.

This collaboration seamlessly merges the domains of horology and virtual racing.

The partnership marks the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Bvlgari's sporty Aluminum watch and the 10th anniversary of the Vision GT program. This initiative opened the doors for leading automakers worldwide to contribute to the development of virtual racing cars for video games. 

The Bvlgari Aluminum Vision GT virtual racer marks the premiere of a hypercar meticulously crafted for Gran Turismo racing by the distinguished brand, breaking new ground beyond the automotive world, following in the footsteps of renowned sports apparel brand Nike.

This virtual race car boasts a strikingly realistic appearance and feel in the digital realm, with the real-life model making its debut at the Gran Turismo World Series Finals in Barcelona from December 1-3, 2023.

Crafted from aluminum for the bodywork with a low, roofless design, carbon for the lower body and technical components, and black rubber safeguarding exposed areas, this hypercar exemplifies meticulous attention to detail. Inside the cockpit, a harmonious blend of colors and materials, including aluminum, black rubber, anthracite Alcantara, and vibrant yellow accents, create a captivating visual spectacle. The dashboard mirrors the yellow dial found on the new Aluminum chronograph.
The virtual two-seater racing car, featuring a removable rear wing that extends backward, is reportedly propelled by a center-mounted inline four-cylinder engine with a rev capacity exceeding 9,500 rpm. Generating 394 bhp and weighing precisely 1,000 kg for a 619.47 PP in-game, the Aluminum Vision GT car in Gran Turismo 7 delivers a visceral experience with the unmistakable roar of its engine, equipped with robust sports tires. Negotiating the circuit, players can sense the challenge of maneuvering through seven gears with considerable braking distances, often encountering understeer.
As of now, enthusiasts can exclusively acquire Bvlgari's virtual racing car by purchasing the brand special timepiece, accompanied by a digital redemption code. This offer is currently available, although there's no confirmation yet regarding its potential availability for all players in the future. Here's hoping for a wider release to make this extraordinary virtual racing experience accessible to all. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GRAN-TURISMO | BVLGARI | GTPLANET | TECHRAPTOR ]
