Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have just revealed the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo in Detroit, USA. The car will actually be available in three versions with different tuning and will be available to play in Gran Turismo 6 for the Playstation 3 console sometime this summer.

The SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo has been nicknamed “the sports car of 2035” by SRT. The design and SRT engineering departments collaborated to develop “the best possible driving experience for Gran Turismo users”. Needless to say the latest Vision GT car to join the ever growing list is packed with the usual technology which takes it beyond today's sports and racing cars. Take a look below at the three different versions of the Tomahawk with the descriptions courtesy of gran-turismo.com.

SRT Tomahawk S Vision Gran Turismo

The Tomahawk S is the entry level machine to prep players for the incredible performance of the Tomahawk series; but the specs of the "S" are already off the charts. The 7.0-litre wide-angle V-10 is tuned to deliver 792 hp (compared with 645 hp for the 8.4-litre V-10 in the 2015 Dodge Viper). The pneumatically driven front wheels add 215 hp, for total system output of 1,007 hp. With a curb weight of 2,026 pounds, this version of the SRT Tomahawk is the heaviest, yet it has a top speed in excess of 250 mph. 

SRT Tomahawk GTS-R Vision Gran Turismo

Race tuning pushes output of the V-10 to 1,137 hp, while the air-driven front wheels add 313 hp for a total system output of 1,450 hp. Aggressive weight-cutting techniques whittles the curb weight of the Tomahawk GTS-R to 1,459 pounds (the lightest of any version) and the top speed in excess of 300 mph.

SRT Tomahawk X Vision Gran Turismo

This is the ultimate Tomahawk that incorporates a variety of experimental technologies. With a redline set at 14,500 rpm, the V-10 engine pumps out 2,168 hp (nearly three times the output from the base Tomahawk S). The front wheel drivetrain contributes an additional 422 hp at peak, for a total output of 2,590 hp. That gives the Tomahawk X a top speed of 404 mph. Due to the extreme performance of the X version, the driver is required to wear a G-suit to withstand the extreme cornering forces. 

Lets us know in the comments below which of the three resonates with you the most.
