The Japanese manufacturer says the concept is "a vision of what a high-performance Nissan could look like in the future". Some reports have suggested the 2+2 model points to future styling for the next GT-R.
Nissan says it gave its designers free reign with the concept, with the brief to create a dream car for a fantasy garage featured in the Gran Turismo 6 video-game. The concept was penned by Nissan designers in London, with engineering input from the firm's technical centre in Japan. While not destined as a production model, Nissan says the car features a four-wheel-drive chassis and active suspension.
Vice President of the company's European design studio Koji Nagano said: "In reality, not everyone would be able to own a car like Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, but through Gran Turismo anyone can drive it and experience Nissan’s promise of delivering innovation that excites."
