Set to appear in the Gran Turismo game later this year, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV has been fully engineered in the virtual world with aerodynamics optimised, tested and proven using state-of-the-art simulation tools. Four electric motors developed by Jaguar Racing deliver 1,903PS (1,400kW), for a 0-60mph time of 1.65 seconds and 255mph top speed.
The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé was the first all-electric Jaguar created for Gran Turismo series, but the Vision GT SV offered the company an opportunity to re-evaluate everything and re-think what an electric Jaguar endurance race car might be.
Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar, said: “Jaguars created for the race track and the road have always shared the same DNA – whether that’s the D-type and XKSS, or the I-PACE and the I-TYPE. So, when the design team behind the Vision GT Coupé were asked to create the ultimate electric gaming endurance racer for Gran Turismo, they worked with engineers from SV and Jaguar Racing to create something really special.
“The Vision GT SV is a dramatic and visually arresting car which showcases what’s possible when the traditional boundaries governing real-world car design are completely removed. In bringing this car to life with a full-size design study we’ve been able to showcase the most extreme version of an electric Jaguar race car that is inspired by the past but looks fearlessly to the future.”
Measuring 5,540mm from nose to tail, the GT SV is 861mm longer than the Coupé to deliver the increased downforce needed for greater traction for faster cornering and increased high speed stability on long straights, the GT SV has a new front splitter and a new deployable rear wing.
As a result, the GT SV has a drag coefficient of Cd 0.398 – remarkably low for a race car – but also generates 483kg of downforce at 200mph.
