NEW VIRTUAL JAGUAR ROADSTER DEBUTS IN GRAN TURISMO 7

Excitement among gaming fans is high with the launch of renowned racing game Gran Turismo 7, featuring Jaguar’s third all-electric virtual gaming sports car, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster. This dynamic new addition follows on from the success of the original Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé and the extreme Vision Gran Turismo SV endurance racer. The new vehicle is a single seater which combines the race-proven powertrain from the Coupé with a taut, sculpted form inspired by the iconic Jaguar D-TYPE.

Jaguar’s design team have celebrated this trilogy of cars by developing a bespoke livery for each vehicle, with black and grey paints and subtle graphics to emphasise the cars’ dramatic, beautiful designs.

A TRULY UNFORGETTABLE DRIVE

The Roadster is designed to bring to life the experience of driving an open cockpit Jaguar sports car powered by three electric motors, generating a total power output of more than 750kW and maximum torque of 1,200Nm. With acceleration of 0-60 mph in under two seconds and a maximum speed in excess of 200 mph, this virtual sports car delivers an outstanding ride, handling and unmatched agility for a truly unforgettable drive.

The Roadster features a swept-back aero screen directly in front of the driver, and behind is a modern interpretation of the fin synonymous with the three-time Le Mans-winning D-TYPE, for enhanced stability with minimal drag. Strikingly, the fin has a Union Jack etched into it, using the Jaguar monogram pattern, and is subtly illuminated by LEDs.

Inside, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster’s dramatic, driver-focused interior combines lightweight, luxurious materials and finishes with stunningly intricate details. Gamers will be fully immersed in the action, with the all-round visibility that is a feature of open-cockpit racers.

A DREAM PROJECT

Oliver Cattell-Ford, Exterior Designer, Jaguar Advanced Design, said, “As a car designer, being part of the team that has delivered three virtual cars for the Gran Turismo series has been a dream project…We wanted to curate the perfect way to present the full line-up of the three cars together when we revealed the Roadster – Gran Turismo 7 is the perfect way to do it. The visual effect is dramatic and wouldn’t look out of place on any track or circuit around the world.”

The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo Coupé and Vision Gran Turismo SV are available now for players in Gran Turismo 7 on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
