Joining the 2021 Toyota GR010 Hybrid and Roadster Shop Rampage Camaro as part of the free update 1.15 for Gran Turismo 7, the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo is an old-but-new virtual race car. It is based on the concept of GSX-R / 4 from 2001 (Pictures in the second photo gallery) But it has been thoroughly updated to keep pace with the times. The two-seater speedster is technically mid-engine because the ICE sits between the two axes behind the front wheels.
Instead of borrowing an engine from a car, it uses a high-revolving inline-four taken from a Hayabusa sports bike. The 1.3-liter mill is powered by three electric motors, drives two front wheels and is mounted on the back to give the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo an all-wheel-drive layout. The combined output is 426 horsepower (318 kW) with a maximum torque of 9,700 rpm and 610 Newton-meters (450 pound-feet).
The hybrid machine weighs just 970 kilograms (2,138 pounds) and features a design that is clearly derived from the Swift Sport. From two-tone alloy wheels to champion yellow body color, the latest VGT is basically a hot hatch that has turned into a roofless sports car that sadly only exists in the virtual state. On the Gran Turismo official website, we can learn a Gr.3 version at a later date.
Like other VGT vehicles before this, Suzuki’s chances of entering digital manufacturing production are nil. Hopefully, an original car will be made for display at public events like the Tokyo Auto Show. We argue that this represents a huge improvement over the original and somewhat bizarre concept of more than two decades ago.
