Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo is a single-seater from the future

It’s hard to imagine that it’s been six years since the first in the series of Vision Gran Turismo concepts was unveiled. It was the Mercedes-AMG Vision Gran Turismo at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, which previewed the design of the AMG GT that would debut a year later. Lamborghini is the latest to announce one of the concepts, revealing the striking design on Sunday during the World Final round of the FIA GT Championships taking place in Monaco.

The car is called the Lambo V12 Vision Gran Turismo, and it’s a dramatic single-seater along the lines of 2013’s Lamborghini Egoista concept. While the Egoista was based on Lamborghini’s V-10 platform, the new Lambo V12 Vision GT is naturally based on the automaker’s V-12 platform. The powertrain is the same 807-horsepower setup found in the recently revealed Sian supercar, where a naturally aspirated V-12 is mated to an electric motor powered by a supercapacitor.
