McLaren has turned its Vision Gran Turismo concept into a real car

First an in-game concept car for GT Sport and Gran Turismo 7, the BC08 Solus GT has turned the virtual into the reality for 25 lucky customers.

Dat Vision Gran Turismo. Always getting new concept cars. Art imitating life imitating art.

If it's not "The Real Driving Simulator," it's definitely "The Real Car Creator."

MajorLazer470d ago

Actually, the manufacturers design the VGT cars so really manufacturers are "imitating" their own creations. Still, the VGT program has some relevance, which I argued on GTPlanet too.

purple101470d ago (Edited 470d ago )

I saw on YouTube the other day Lamborghini have also turned their vision Gt car into a real life car.

DaniMacYo470d ago

Yeah seen this so cool hope it comes to the game.

aaronaton470d ago

It just shows the talent that is at Polyphony Digital when real manufacturer's are that impressed with their designs.
Meanwhile over at Turn10....Hotwheels, Lego, and Minecraft avatars.


What are you talking about... Car was designed by McLaren.

Sony AI Unveils Gran Turismo Sophy, a Breakthrough in AI

February 9, 2022 – Sony AI, together with Polyphony Digital Inc. (PDI) and Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), today announced a breakthrough in artificial intelligence (AI) called Gran Turismo SophyTM (“GT Sophy”) - the first superhuman AI agent to outrace the world’s best drivers of the highly realistic PlayStation®4 racing simulation game, Gran TurismoTM (GT) Sport. GT Sophy aims to deliver new AI-powered gaming experiences to players around the world.

“the first superhuman AI agent to outrace the world’s best drivers of the highly realistic PlayStation®4 racing simulation game“

This would destroy me since I’m not the greatest racer out there to begin with. Sounds pretty awesome though!

SullysCigar663d ago

Lol same, I tend to use the side of the car next to me to keep me on the track in the corners.

I look forward to bouncing off Sophy. Sorry, that was shameful.

badz149663d ago

so...it was you all along!

porkChop663d ago

Eh, not quite. I think there's a pretty big difference between the two. Though I do hope that Xbox takes the Drivatar concept to the next level this gen. They can use the machine learning chips in the Series consoles to create far more realistic AIs based on player styles and habits, and then apply that tech to more than just racing games. Imagine playing Doom or something, where the AIs get smarter over time and adapt to new tactics based on how all the players actually play the game.

Leathersoup663d ago

I'm not a fan of the Drivatar model. They seem to learn the worst parts of a players playstyle and bring it into the single player game. Basically you get the worst of online gaming in your single player game.

purple101663d ago

Mee too..

. It's not in the game at launch, will be added later it says. So we're safe from the robots for now!

Atticus_finch663d ago

Sounds awesome. Can't wait to race against it. Another reason why GT is ahead of the competition.

frostypants663d ago

They never said this would be in GT7.

TrueViper663d ago

Here is an article where Kazunori Yamauchi confirms a form of it is coming in a future update to GT7. https://www.gtplanet.net/gr...

S2Killinit663d ago (Edited 663d ago )

Is it or is it not? In some shape or form

RaiderNation663d ago

Is "Sophy" an acronym for Sony and Polyphony?

SullysCigar663d ago

Ooh clever! I so hope that's true.
