Mercedes Creates Its Coolest Concept Car Ever — For Gran Turismo 6

• By Damon Lavrinc
 Where designers can run wild and engineers can concoct a powertrain that would never make it past the EPA. That world exists. It’s called Gran Turismo. And Mercedes-Benz’ AMG division has cooked up a car that could only live in the virtual world.

For the sixth installment of the world’s greatest racing game, Mercedes’ design team created the Vision Gran Turismo. Think of it as an SLS AMG, born on Mars and digitized at the hands of GT’s creator, Kazunori Yamauchi.

The Vision GT is a nod to the past and a look at the future, with cues pulled from the Benz’ 1930s racers and the 300SL racer that inspired the automaker’s current supercar. But the glossy exterior, elongated rump, and flared wheel arches are where the similarities end.
