Jaguar revealed the newest Vision Gran Turismo – the 'Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé.'
However, this latest and greatest electric car from Jaguar will only be available to play in Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4 starting at the end of November.
The new "car" has 750kW of total power available (or about 1,000 horsepower) thanks to a three-motor all-wheel drive system. Its power train includes compact and powerful electric motors, and the battery driving these utilises the same lithium-ion batteries proven in the world’s first production electric car race series, the ‘I-PACE eTROPHY’.
The highlight of the car is the shape and form created by Jaguar Advanced Design specifically for Gran Turismo. To achieve its silhouette, the battery module was placed around the cockpit, "achieving both low centre of gravity and perfect weight distribution," according to Sony.
The cockpit takes inspiration from legendary Jaguar race cars such as the C, D, and E-Types. Modern- and driver- oriented interior philosophy have been fused with pure details, striking a fine balance between analog and digital. The access to the cockpit is done through the electric roof hatch.
This Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé appeared immediately in the World Tour Exhibition Pro-Am race hosted at the announcement venue, where top racers and journalists experienced first-hand its (virtual) performance.
