If you’re not already trying to race your way into a pro seat with Gran Turismo, you’ve probably made plans to do so at some point. But whether you’re a hardcore driving sim fan or just a casual gamer, you’ll love BMW’s latest addition to Gran Turismo 6: the Vision Gran Turismo.

Good for 549 virtual horsepower, and developed by BMW M, the Vision Gran Turismo gets its video game power from a fictional but excellent turbocharged 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine that we’d like to see in real life.

Far from being mere exercise in fantasy, the BMW Vision Gran Turismo video game race car is intended to forecast some of the developments of racing’s real-world future.

“The development of the BMW Vision Gran Turismo combines our many years of motorsports experience with signature BMW Design. The race car anticipates future racing trends and allows gaming fans even more to experience BMW racing quality,” said Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, vice president of brand communication for BMW, BMW i, and BMW M.

Among the Vision Gran Turismo’s future race-inspired technology is the turbo engine, a curb weight of just 2,605 pounds, and downforce-producing carbon bodywork that simultaneously minimizes drag.

BMW says the new video game race car also shows its commitment to gaming, which allows more people to experience its cars, both real and fictional, historic and futuristic, than would otherwise get the chance.
