Bad News! The Baby Honda NSX? It's Virtual

Bad News! The Baby Honda NSX? It's Virtual

Designed specifically for the new Gran Turismo Sport video game, the Peugeot L750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo will exist entirely digitally and offers a teensy glimpse into the French marque's future.

A couple of years ago, a set of patented images surfaced showing a mysteriously sporty Honda model that pretty much looked like a smaller NSX. The hybrid powertrain of the L500 R Hybrid - naturally having 500 ponies - has been enhanced to 580 hp for the ICE and 170 hp for the electric motor, reaching a grand total of 750 hp. It was also a hybrid type composed of a gas engine, with two electric motors. It's coming out very soon, so here's all we know about the game. They should have put in more cars but the selection is decent for a demo. This is coupled with a suspension system that automatically adjusts in height in accordance with the car's speed allowing for sharper turns and better traction. Since it's not the most outlandish of shapes, there is at least hope that Honda might make a full size, real life version, as has been done for past Vision GT concepts.

As if October 17 couldn't get any closer, Peugeot gives us another reason to pick up a copy of GT Sport once it hits the shelves next week. In case that doesn't help either, Gran Turismo is a series that has been running since 1997, all about racing cars.
