Jaguar presents the Vision Gran Turismo SV

Jaguar has revealed its new Vision Gran Turismo SV racer for the hotly anticipated seventh generation Gran Turismo game due to be launched on PlayStation 5 in 2021.

The team at Special Vehicle Operations went a step further by building a full-scale design model as well as the in-game model showcasing the potential of EV motorsport design.

The concept builds on Jaguar’s Formula E technology using four electric motors, one at each wheel developed by Jaguar Racing to deliver 1,903PS catapulting the GT SV from 0-60mph in 1.65 seconds and onto a top speed of 225mph. For a race car, it has an incredibly low drag co-efficient of Cd 0.398 whilst also generating 483kg of downforce at 200mph. 

Designed as the ultimate virtual endurance racer, the Jaguar Vision GT SV pays homage to its illustrious forebears not only in a host of styling and surfacing references but in its unique circuit board livery which nods to milestones such as the Le Mans debuts of the C-type and D-type in 1951 and 1954 respectively.
