General Motors and Polyphony Digital have just made public that the Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo can now be downloaded in Gran Turismo 6.
Available as part of the 1.15 update, the car model can be bought or gained after completing a lap in the new seasonal event, which is available for a limited period of time.
The race car has its propulsion and suspension systems built around the driver, which enables progressive strategies of active and driver adjustable-aerodynamics and eliminates the need for large, conventional wings or other aero devices used to create grip-enhancing down force. On board can only be found essential elements with instrumentation projected on the driver’s helmet visor.
Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design, said that “The Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision GT serves as an example of what our designers are capable of when they are cut loose, no holds barred. It’s a fantasy car in every sense of the word.”
The futuristic car has an imaginary laser-based propulsion system that was inspired from “advanced work targeted at space travel and future aircraft design.” The Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo produces 900bhp, can accelerate from 0 to 30 mph in 1.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 240 mph. That is virtually fast indeed!
