Jaguar has developed a virtual electric car Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV (6 photos + video)

A unique virtual racing car createdby Jaguar engineers based on the computer model used by gamers in the computer racing simulator Gran Turismo. A high-speed machine with outstanding performance, designed for full-scale design research.

The development of the car was carried out by engineerscompanies previously working on projects for Jaguar Design, SV and Jaguar Racing. The car was based on the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupe, introduced in the Gran Turismo game in October 2019. In the new virtual sports car, thanks to the use of C-type, D-type, XJR-9 and XJR-14 technologies, unique characteristics of the Cd coefficient of 0.398 were obtained. Jaguar engineers have also created a one-to-one scale model of the Vision Gran Turismo SV virtual car.

The streamlined body of the first completelyJaguar Vision's Gran Turismo SV electric sports car is made of composite materials. It is a four-wheel drive vehicle with four electric motors, one per wheel. The acceleration time from 0 to 60 mph (96.5 km / h) is only 1.65 seconds, the total engine power is 1,903 hp. (1400 kW and 3360 Nm torque) at a top speed of 255 mph or 410 km / h.

Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV Wheelbaseis 2721 mm, length - 5540 mm, which provides unique aerodynamics with increased downforce (483 kg at 200 mph) needed for better grip, faster cornering and increased stability at high speeds on straight tracks.

Autonomous power supply is provided by the latestA lithium-ion battery that is housed in the underbody of the GT SV, providing a low center of gravity, agility and near-perfect weight distribution. The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV electric sports car will hit the virtual tracks of Gran Turismo next year.
