Volkswagen joins Mercedes and Subaru in launching a concept car for Gran Turismo 6

Volkswagen has released a teaser image of its Gran Turismo concept car. Players of the PlayStation3 game, Gran Turismo 6, will be able to get behind the wheel and take VW’s concept for a spin as part of the Gran Turismo 6 Vision project.

The concept has the look of a sleeker and more performance-focused Volkswagen Scirocco, but other than that, it's unlike anything currently available in the VW range. Oversized alloy wheels fill the bulging wheel arches, with a sharp kick on the car's flanks along with the bodykit giving it a more aggressive look.

VW has joined the likes of Subaru, Mercedes and Formula 1 team Red Bull in releasing concept cars for Gran Turismo 6. Mercedes has been the only manufacture to bring its car to life, revealing it in full at the LA Motor Show in last November. The project previously featured the Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept.

The concept cars are available to download and be used in the game in a free special content package, created to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo franchise.
