Lamborghini Reveals Its V12 Gran Turismo Hybrid Concept

The 2019 Gran Turismo Championship hasn’t just brought us the new Rotary Mazda concept, but our Italian friends who have an affinity to bulls have also revealed their long-awaited concept, too. This is the Lamborghini V12 Gran Turismo, and boy is it a looker.

Lamborghini teased its engine note a few days ago, but now we can see it in all its glory we’re able to soak up its angular design that’s separated into pods like the Aston Martin Valkyrie. This design allows it to move through the air similar to that of a Formula 1 car, while reducing weight overall. Mitja Borkert, director of Lamborghini’s design centre, talks about it here:

“The Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo was designed to be the best virtual car ever for all the young gamers and fans who love our brand. It is an opportunity for the genius and talent of our designers to fully express themselves and imagine a car that is not only fascinating and incredible to drive, but also reflects the design centre’s commitment to developing innovative technologies, especially in the field of light materials and hybridisation.”

As we guessed previously, this car embraces the hybrid powertrain from the recently released Sian supercar, and while the Italian marque isn’t giving in to our please to know more, we can guess that the 6.5-litre V12 and 48-volt hybrid system creates something along the lines of 808bhp. It send the Sian to 62mph in less than 3 seconds, so expect a performance close to that depending on the what drag this Vision concept creates from its busy body.

Want to know more? You’re going to have to wait until the car is released on Gran Turismo unfortunately.

He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX.
