Today Nissan revealed its Hyper Force EV concept supercar at the Japan Mobility Show, and it includes a bit of Gran Turismo.
Interestingly, said UI changes color between red and blue depending on whether the driver selects the high-performance R (Racing) mode or the comfortable GT (Grand Touring) driving mode.
While the Nissan Hyper Force is real and has actually been built to be exhibited at the Japan Mobility Show, it's a concept card, which means that it won't actually be mass-produced or sold.
It's designed to be a symbol of what the future of cars and driving can be according to Nissan, and you can see what the user interface designed by the folks at Polyphony can do in the video below.
Nissan also provided a trailer for the Hyper Force, which is intended to be the "resounding finale" of a series of five concept EV, capable of providing a monstrous output of up to 1,000 kW. The top speed isn't stated, but you can bet that this is likely very, very quick.
At the moment, there is no information on whether the Hyper Force will ever make its way into the virtual racing world of Gran Turismo 7, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if that happened down the line. After all, we got an ambulance, so there's nothing that would surprise me anymore.
Polyphony Digital and Nissan have been collaborating closely for a long time, so the fact that they're working together on this kind of initiative is really not shocking.
The developer of the Gran Turismo series has been working with real-world manufacturers in many ways, the most visible of which is the Vision GT series of concept cars which have been making their drivable appearance in the franchise, created in collaboration with Nissan itself, alongside prestigious brands like Porsche, Lamborghini, and many more.
