It’s not the first time that a car designed for video games has been transformed into a concrete project. The Genesis
The digital world has always been a great opportunity to experiment extreme aesthetic and mechanical solutions and breaking with tradition. Automobile designers can use the tricks of simulation to give shape to all of those ‘forbidden dreams’ which even escape the definition of hypercar, effectively creating a new segment.
Gran Turismo is undoubtedly the video game that contributed most to the creation of concept esclusive, the very famous Vision (we talked about it in this article), often so appreciated that they are desired even in real form. Genesis, following in the wake of this trend, presented its own new gaming creature during the world final of Gran Turismo World Series. A decidedly appropriate opportunity to unveil a concept, the Genesis X Gran Berlinettawhich may not be limited to just the digital universe.
Genesis X Gran Berlinetta: plausible mechanics
The Genesis X Gran Berlinetta will bite the digital asphalt thanks to a very powerful six-cylinder V enginecapable of achieving well 10,000 revolutions per minute. The power delivered by this engine stands at 870 CV obtained thanks to the e-SC system, characterized by a electric compressor. However, the surprises do not end here: in fact, the overall power, also considering the on-board hybrid system, increases to the incredible value of 1,071 CV and 1,337 Nm of torque.
Features that they definitely leave you amazed, but which are not so distant from those that real-world super sports car manufacturers are getting us used to. The stylistic details only stand out the great sportiness of the vehiclewhich seems literally born to pierce screens: a precious source of inspiration for production cars!
Born for video games, introduced in the real world
For once the exact opposite of what we are used to happened: the Genesis presented in the form of a static maquette in Barcelona, during the final of the Gran Turismo World Series. Its shapes anticipate the appearance of Concept Vision GT which will soon be available to players in Gran Turismo 7. His style is characterized by curved but pleasantly taut lines which end at the back with a truncated tail and with an oval design, while at the front they join together into a very profiled front and essential.
The many are notable scenographic details that personalize the bodywork, among which the numerous air ventsthe rear wing, the elongated design of the headlights and the huge rims with an elegantly intricate style. Then there is no shortage reminders of the real worldwhich we find in the form of front mask (inspired by that of the new Genesis) and in F1 type central rear light. Big surprises inside too, where a dashboard monitor dominates the scenein a technological and very refined atmosphere of a true berlinetta of modern times.
Will we ever see a road adaptation of the Genesis? It’s impossible to say for sure but we will most likely find several of its characteristics in future Genesis projects.
