Jaguar Vision GT SV Introduced
There is one car that Jaguar loyalists and gaming enthusiasts are waiting for with great anticipation and that is the Jaguar Vision GT SV. While there is no official launch date just yet there is a lot more information now on what we can expect with this top class performance vehicle for the digital and virtual gaming world of Gran Turismo. This blog should help you to feel more informed about the upcoming Jaguar Vision GT SV.
Jaguar have finally revealed the Vision Gran Turismo SV which is an all-electric endurance car designed by the brand for the Gran Turismo franchise. While it will never be a real car, there is a lot of attention to detail that only goes alongside Jaguar’s mentality and the GT focus. Jaguar has said that the car is “fully engineered in the virtual world” with the aerodynamics tweaked using simulation tools.
What can we expect from the design?
The design has been based on the old vision GT Coupe but also includes a few signature nods to the C-type, D-tyep and XJR. This should keep everyone happy as it really has a sense of historical attributes about it while looking at the design to fit in today's digital and sleek world.
What is the vehicle powered by?
In the game, the body is made from lightweight composite. There are a total of four electric motors, one for each wheel, and one more than the normal Vision GT Couple. All of those motors combined and working together will develop a powertrain of 1882bhp, 2,478lb of torque and it can get to 0-60 mph in a matter of 1.65 seconds. Let’s not forget the top speed of 255 mph. Obviously in the game, of course.
What else do we need to know?
Let’s talk about the size for a moment. A 2,721mm wheelbase with an overall length of ,540mm. In real life terms, that makes the Vision GT SV a fair bit longer in wheelbase than a Range Rover. New aerodynamics and features help to make the vehicle look and feel sleek and firm. There is also an extra feature worth mentioning which is that two section lift at speed to give extra downforce when required. The ultimate performance car. Of course, while this vehicle is a figment of imagination, it really shows just where car designer sminds can go and the lengths and options that are available to them as technology advances and things move forward. The company used the same aero package as the computational fluid dynamics analysis that is used for Formula E cars. There is a lot of thought that has gone into this and Jaguar are confident that all Gran Turisomo fans will be extremely happy with the latest offering.
