The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster is an all-electric single-seater which combines a race-proven, state-of-the art powertrain with a taut, sculpted form inspired by the iconic, timeless Jaguar D-type.
Following the success of the original Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé and Vision Gran Turismo SV endurance racer, the Gran Turismo Roadster is designed to bring gamers the pure, visceral driving experience of an open-cockpit Jaguar sports car powered by three electric motors generating a total power output of more than 986.2 BHP.
The flowing surfaces, dramatic lines and perfect proportions of the first two Jaguar Gran Turismo Vision cars are instantly recognisable, but in place of a deployable canopy is a swept-back aero screen directly in front of the driver. Behind, a modern interpretation of the fin synonymous of the three-time Le Mans-winning D-type, aerodynamically optimised using the latest computational fluid dynamics tools to be deployable at speed for enhanced stability with minimal drag.
The fin also features one of the beautiful details to be found thoughout the Roadster, here in the form of a Union Jack etched – using the Jaguar monogram pattern – into the fin itself, and subtly illuminated by LEDs. The theme continues with the hand-crafted leather straps on the front fenders and iconic roundel lights in the front grille.
The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster’s dramatic, driver-focused interior combines lightweight, luxurious materials and finishes with stunningly intricate details. Looking out onto the gracefully long bonnet, gamers will be fully immersed in the action.
