The Nissan 2020 Vision has been refreshed and revised, as it took centre stage at the recent Tokyo Motor Show.
The Vision boasts a new interpretation of Nissan's trademark V-Motion grille, as well as a fresh lick of matte paint, thanks to Nissan's striking Fire Knight Red colour. Originally revealed in 2014 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, then coated in grey paint, the concept has been developed conjunctively with Polyphony Digital. Although dramatic, it has in fact been created exclusively for the Gran Turismo video game, with the help of young designers at Nissan Design Europe, based in London.
Whilst it will never see the open road apart from the virtual one there are clearly a number of design cues shared with the current GT-R, which point towards the styling of its eventual successor. These include the iconic, circular rear lights, aggressively narrow headlights and wide, muscly haunches.
Sitting under the bright lights of the Tokyo Motor Show last week, the 2020 Vision's dramatic proportions, now accentuated in its bold red paint, stirred fresh interest for the critically acclaimed GT-R's replacement.
