Mitsubishi Introduces Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo

Mitsubishi Concept XR PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo

Mitsubishi has revealed the Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo based on the XR-PHEV model introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2013.

Athletic design structure

The concept features a carbon fibre reinforced plastic body and a huge rear wing. In addition, the car features dynamic front fascia, massive 20-inch aluminium wheels and aerodynamic side skirts.

According to Mitsubishi, the iconic front grille is a study of next generation Mitsubishi automobiles, and the shape that forms a wedge starting from the triple diamond mark is designed in the image of an athlete at crouching position on a starting line, evoking an intense image of tension and potential.

The car is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that is connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission to drive the four wheels. Its performance is additionally controlled with the S-AWC vehicle dynamics control system that distributes the drive force optimally to the four wheels, producing a handling characteristic that moves the car exactly as the driver desires.

The Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo is available now in Gran Turismo 6 through individual purchase in the Cars section of the game or by completing a lap in a brand new Seasonal Event.
