Last week, Nissan showed a chart of all its models ever featured in the Gran Turismo video game series, with a special veiled model set to be revealed today. We may have to wait a little longer to find out exactly what this mystery car is, though, as all Nissan issued today is a slightly more revealing teaser of the sports car which will actually debut next week on June 16 after all.
From what we know so far, this car looks to be a Gran Turismo Vision concept created specifically for the Gran Turismo 6 video game like recent concepts from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, and Mitsubishi. It may not be limited to the virtual world, though, as rumor is that this aggressive-looking Nissan sports car could be a preview of the next-generation Nissan GT-R. Nissan’s calling this the “next chapter in its passion for performance,” and the current GT-R has been around since 2007, so it wouldn’t be too off-base for this concept to be one of our first hints at where the brand’s ultra-high-performance supercar is headed in the future.
Like these other Gran Turismo Vision concepts, this unnamed Nissan concept should display some pretty wild styling if this teaser is any indication. A variety of extreme angles combine up front for an in-your-face look that centers around a low-hanging front grille flanked by enormous air scoops and vents. We can’t wait to see more of the car, as the glimpse of the profile and rear end from this teaser seems to be just as swoopy and exaggerated as the front end.
Stay tuned for more news about Nissan’s wild concept as this sports car is fully revealed next week on June 16.
