  • Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé will debut in the PS4 game this November
  • The electric sports car will offer more than 1,000 horsepower and top speeds of more than 200 miles per hour
  • The Coupé will also be able to go from 0 to 60mph in two seconds 

Jaguar has revealed its next electric car, the Vision Gran Turismo Coupé, but speed freaks won’t be able to put their foot on the pedals.

Described as a ‘hypercar’, the Coupé will be powered by a 750kW engine with 1,000 horsepower, capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than two seconds. It will also be capable of reaching top speeds of more than 200mph.

It will also feature a futuristic holographic dashboard display that can adapt the information it shows to drivers depending on where they are and what they’re doing.

Vision Gran Turismo is a platform for car manufacturers to introduce their most radical concept cars to see how they perform in a virtual setting.

JAGUAR VISION GRAN TURISMO COUPE SPECS

Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé is the company’s first ‘virtual  all-electric sports car,’ an original all-wheel drive design.

The design is inspired by the company’s I-TYPE 4 and eTROPHY race cars.

The car features a 750 kW engine with 1,020 horsepower that can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than two seconds.

It will available exclusively in Gran Turismo Sport on PlayStation 4 at the end of November. 

In the past, Vision has seen an array of experimental vehicles, including the Merecedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV EVOLUTION Vision Gran Turismo, and the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo from Dodge.

Jaguar’s Coupé is the English car manufacturer’s first creation for the game.

In the past, other car manufacturers have turned their video game concept cars into real physical products, including Toyota’s LT-1, and Audi’s E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo.

At this time, Jaguar has no plans to release the Coupé anywhere other than the game.

In 2017, the Lincolnshire police department began using the game to train officers for safely navigating high speed chases.

Matthew Simmons, an Australian man who currently drives for the Nissan race team, began his career by mastering Gran Turismo and then winning its GT Academy racing competition in 2015.

‘I’ve wanted to be a racing driver since I was a kid,’ he said in 2017.

‘I practiced everyday and started competing online. When I found out about the Nissan GT Academy I changed my whole life to focus on my dream.’
