Alongside the Bulgari Vision GT, Polyphony lifted the wraps off a new concept car from Genesis during the Gran Turismo World Series Finals. Say hello to the Genesis Vision GT, a sleek supercar concept car from Hyundai’s luxury division.
While it won’t enter production, Gran Turismo 7 players can take it for a virtual drive early next year.
Genesis Vision GT revealed at World Series Finals
Revealed at the World Series Finals in Barcelona, the Genesis Vision GT sports an athletic design blending cues from the brand’s current model range like the GV80. The brand’s signature Crest grille adorns the front, flanked by quad headlights and a prominent air scoop.
An oval-shaped rear fascia makes the back end look even more striking. The concept's sleek aerodynamic design results in a drag coefficient of 0.34, while Korea’s volcanoes inspire its striking orange hue according to Genesis.
“Our goal was to create a timeless design rooted in the essence of motorsport,” said John Krsteski, Genesis Senior Chief Designer. “We have an incredibly diverse global design team that are car and racing enthusiasts. The designers relished the opportunity to create a race car that featured Genesis design elements as well as technical performance attributes. It has become a catalyst of inspiration for our other programs.”
As for the technical specs, the Genesis Vision GT is powered by a front mid-mounted V6 engine that screams up to 10,000 RPM and an electric motor, delivering a total of 1,071 hp.
Sadly, Genesis isn’t planning to put this gorgeous concept into production, which is a shame considering the brand doesn’t have a halo car in its current model lineup. We’d love to see Genesis build a production supercar inspired by the Vision GT.
Inside the minimalist interior, the steer-by-wire grip controls are inspired by a PlayStation controller.
How to redeem the Genesis Vision GT in Gran Turismo 7
While accessing the Bulgari Vision GT requires you to splash out on an expensive watch, the Genesis Vision GT is easier and cheaper to redeem in GT7.
To redeem it, all you have to do is go to the banner at the top right corner of the GT7 World Map home screen and watch the GT World Series broadcast before 23:59 UTC on 10 December.
Do this and the Genesis Vision GT will be gifted to your garage in the January 2024 update. This may indicate that Polyphony isn’t planning a December GT7 update after November's substantial Spec II update.
