It’s a look at where Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) could be in 20 years, but if you have the right equipment, you can drive it long before 2035.
Released in full detail June 2 is the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo Concept car from FCA, a creation created specially for the video game Gran Turismo 6. The result of an internal design competition at FCA where every employee was encouraged to participate, the concept comes from a basis of existing designs and technologies while simultaneously projecting their evolution over the next two decades.

As the press release from FCA tells us, this concept features a hybrid powertrain with a wide-angle V10 powering the rear of the car, and a pneumatic driven front. The combined power of these two systems is said to be up to 2,590 hp, with 2,168 coming from the V10 alone. But with the heavy use of graphene throughout the design, its weight is projected to be just 1,658 pounds, creating a power-to-weight ratio of 1.56 hp/pound.
Of course, since this vehicle is exclusively available through unlocking certain online achievements in Gran Turismo 6, there are three performance levels available. The entry-level Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo S only delivers 1,007 hp with a higher weight of 2,026 pounds. The second level is the Tomahawk Vision GTS-R adds race tuning and cuts weight, increasing power to 1,450 hp and decreasing curb weight to 1,459.
The third version is the “Experimental technology ultimate version X,” which is the fully unleashed engine. The redline is set at 14,500 rpm, and a top speed of 404 mph can be reached. Of course, with levels of performance so close to those of an airplane, drivers are required to wear a G-Suit for protection.
Check out the photos of these three levels in the gallery below, and once you’ve unlocked each level of this model, share your screenshots in the comments.
