As part of its debut of the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo supercar, FCA US is introducing the V-10, 2,590-horsepower concept car on the new racing video game, Gran Turismo 6.
“FCA designers took part in a design competition and the concept that was chosen is extreme in every way with its striking form, aerodynamic proportions, internal mechanisms, and advanced driver’s suit,” says Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of Gran Turismo and president of Polyphony Digital Inc. “Due to the radical design of the vehicle, our physics team had to develop new physics for Gran Turismo in order to represent the car properly in the game.”
The exterior of the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo represents a futuristic interpretation of a Dodge vehicle. A large air intake for engine cooling is mounted on the hood. Active panels mounted above the front and rear fenders are constantly moving to create the optimal amount of aerodynamic downforce.
Paul Hoste, the FCA designer who created the car, says the vehicle has a “pinched-waist” silhouette with exposed aluminum spine channels to help cool the engine.
Players can access three versions of the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo by successfully completing online challenges in Gran Turismo 6.
