Mazda has unveiled a virtual sports car called the “Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo” developed exclusively for Gran Turismo 6, the popular racing simulation game available exclusively on PlayStation 3.
The car was created as part of the “Vision Gran Turismo” project for Gran Turismo 6, the latest Gran Turismo series developed by Polyphony Digital Inc.
Developed in close collaboration with Polyphony, the Mazda LM55 blends agility with elegance in the car’s dynamic silhouette, says the Japanese car maker. While iterating Mazda’s hallmark KODO design language on the front face, its stance is reminiscent of the famed 787B that took overall victory at the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans, is powerful yet graceful.
After installing a Holiday Season Update (free of charge) in Gran Turismo 6 area, LM55 can be obtained from the Vision Gran Turismo area.
With the release, Mazda says it will continue to strive to become a brand that enriches customers’ lives and maintains special bonds with the customers through a variety of touch points, including driving simulations such as the Gran Turismo 6.
