Remember that Nissan Video Game Concept Car from 10 Days Ago? Yeah, They Made One.

We Totally Saw it Coming. Well... Virtually.
As reported on June 17 by Editor Yoriko:

Nissan and Polyphony Digital officially unveiled Nissan "Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo." It is a virtual sport car made for "Gran Turismo 6" (a game software) for PlayStation3.

Polyphony Digital is a subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment and develops video games. They are well known as a developer of the Gran Turismo Series.  

This project started off by Nissan's talented young designers from Nissan Design Europe designing their dream sport cars. And then, engineers from Nissan Technical Center provided feedbacks regarding the technical issues to make the virtual car legitimate.  

Nissan "Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo" will be available though free update of "Gran Turismo 6", starting sometime in July 2014.

So okay, all fine and good. Awesome virtual concept car heading for Gran Turismo 6. That's pretty cool, and the story could just as well end there, but oh no...

Yeah, they went ahead and built one. And it's quite a bit sexier in real life.

Whether or not it's meatspace-driveable, that's an unknown, but PS3 gamers will get their hands on the virtual version soon enough. Have a look - excellent video at the end, too:
