Skoda to Unveil All-Electric Vision Gran Turismo for Virtual Racing on April 24

By Divyam Dubey - April 22, 2024
Skoda Auto has unveiled a tantalizing glimpse of the Vision Gran Turismo, teasing an open-top racer poised to define the future of automotive gaming within the Gran Turismo universe.

Skoda Auto will unveil its Vision Gran Turismo concept car on April 24, 2024, to make its presence felt in the Gran Turismo video game. This is a big step forward for the brand, renowned for its rich legacy in both automotive manufacturing and motorsport. Accompanying this announcement is an intriguing teaser image featuring a partially obscured rear view of the car, igniting anticipation among enthusiasts. Speculation is rife about the vehicle's open-top design, accentuated by a distinctive central ridge. The Vision GT looks a lot like the driver's fairing on the original 1100 model, but it only has one seat. It's an exciting evolution of Skoda's automotive heritage, presented in a fresh and exhilarating format.

What to Expect?

The Vision Gran Turismo design from Skoda Auto is a sneak peek into its futuristic open-top racer. Skoda's futuristic race car is a one-seater electric four-wheel drive, presenting a contemporary interpretation of classic design elements. 

The original Spider was powered by a 1.1-litre four-cylinder engine, which produced 91 horsepower. The Vision Gran Turismo promises to offer significantly increased performance numbers, with a four-digit power figure and thrilling speeds. That said, it is important to keep in mind that all of this excitement and thrill are limited to the virtual world, for the Vision Gran Turismo exists digitally. 

Skoda has joined a long list of great car brands that are adding to the Gran Turismo experience, such as Mercedes-Benz, Dodge, Chevrolet, and Hyundai. With the highly anticipated next major update of Gran Turismo 7, players will have the opportunity to experience the Skoda VGT firsthand. The official unveiling of the Vision Gran Turismo is scheduled for next week on Skoda Motorsport's platform.
