The Bugatti and Hyundai Vision Gran Turismo concept cars have unveiled at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show
Whilst both were announced prior to the expo's opening day, the Bugatti and Hyundai design studies are both being showcased to the public for the first time at Frankfurt.
Bugatti's Vision Gran Turismo has in particular been attracting the attention of the wider motoring press. Not only previews the design of the successor to the iconic Veyron supercar, but this one-off concept car is associated with some unbelievable statistics. For example, Bugatti claims the Vision Gran Turismo would be able to reach speeds of over 248mph four times over a single lap at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
Other noteworthy facts also include the peak downforce figure (a maximum of 2000kg – more than what a Formula One car generates) and the Michelin tyres created specifically for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo show car.
Like the Bugatti, Hyundai's N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo is also heavily inspired by motor racing, though the emphasis here is more on the technology underpinning it. Instead of conventional internal combustion engines or hybrid powertrains seen in a majority of motorsports disciplines, the Hyundai's main source of propulsion comes from a hydrogen fuel cell.
When supplemented with the power from the energy recovery system, the powertrain can produce up to 871 horsepower. As expected from something with such a monstrous output, the N 2025 has an all-wheel drive system, in the form of four electric motors – one for each of the car's wheels.
It's currently unknown when the Bugatti and Hyundai Vision Gran Turismo cars will be brought to Gran Turismo 6. However, it's expected that both will be added to the game before the end of the month.
