Has Hyundai made the wildest Vision GT concept yet?
It doesn't preview a Veyron successor, but it does look damn cool. Frankfurt sees the Hyundai N 2025 revealed in full
There has been no shortage of wild Vision Gran Turismo concepts. Frankfurt alone already has one, in the shape of Bugatti’s Vision GT. But we’ve got a hunch the most exciting looking of the lot could actually be this, Frankfurt’s other Vision GT.
But the N 2025 Vision GT does look staggering. There’s more than a hint of Le Mans Prototype about its proportions, particularly its elongated tail, which has a rear fin not unlike the latest LMP1 hybrids.
It then veers off into an even more cartoonish Hot Wheels-esque world: just look at the size of wheel compared to body-work. Its like an eight-year-old’s exercise book sketch made real.
Of course it’s not completely real. It’s a physical model of the latest addition to Gran Turismo, but we doubt its 872bhp hydrogen and super-capacitor drivetrain actually exists beneath the barmy skin. But that set-up doesn’t half sound cool regardless.
It’s been displayed at the Frankfurt motor show alongside other branches of Hyundai’s new N performance brand, including the Veloster-based RM15 sports car concept, a new i20 rally car and – why the hell not? – a bobsleigh.
