Gran Turismo 6: Peugeot Vision GT

In the distant past, Peugeot has been well known for creating sturdy cars like the 504 Break, sporty cars like the 205 GTi, and now, terrible cars like the 307 and the 407. Peugeot is all about changing their minds through the years and because of their unquestionable automobile history, the French carmaker decided to create an unquestionable concept car capable of unleashing its unquestionable potential.

This is the Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo, the latest entry of Gran Turismo 6's Vision Gran Turismo lineup of concept cars that are suitable in the world of Gran Turismo. It incorporates Peugeot's motorsport history into one unique package and it delivers unquestionable aerodynamics that generate powerful downforces directly through the body panels, reaching to a mere 1.04 meters.

This car has an uncanny performance because the 3.2L V6 turbo engine delivers 875PS of power and the same amount for weight, meaning it can deliver an unparalleled 1kg/ps weight-to-power ratio and a 0-100kph time of less than two seconds. Less than two seconds in a concept car made by the French!

Peugeot claims that this car has an ultra-direct steering but sadly, its handling is very sensitive so when you turn hard at high speeds, it tends to understeer without warning so you have to be very careful while trying to handle this car with precision. If you set it up right, it becomes much easier.

I managed to try this one in a Special Event held at the Tokyo R246 track and what am I doing is aiming for the Gold Target Time, knowing how good this car is. While plagued by the diabolical understeer at high speeds, the straight line speeds are unquestionable and having managed to survive the Peugeot VGT's unquestionable mobility and stability, I managed to clear the Gold Target Time and I did it in 1:29.559. Not the fastest I ever done, but this is proof that how good this Peugeot concept car is.

The Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo is one of the fastest-accelerating cars in Gran Turismo 6 but it requires precise driving skills to get this thing round corners due to its understeering issues. This car is one of the many proofs why Peugeot remains one of the most unquestionable carmakers in history because of its unquestionable history of making tough cars, sporty cars, and terrible cars.

Expect more cars coming at the Vision Gran Turismo range very soon!
