Video: The Making of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran TurismoThu, 05 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800
In a new video exploring the design of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz designers speak of their excitement at designing without restrictions.
The video, which features figures such as design vice-president Gorden Wagener, traces the car's development from the sketch phase to the final model – unveiled at last month's Los Angeles auto show.
Steffen Köhl, director advanced design global, says, "We had the mix between the very far away showcar design – free and pure emotion – and a car that reacts realistically in the game."
"The most stunning aspect of this car is the proportion. It is so low, so wide, so fast-looking that it's incredible," enthuses Wagener.
The video shows just how much work went into producing the car within an amazingly short timeframe. And it paid off.
At the unveiling we were very impressed with the AMG Vision Gran Turismo's simple, smooth surfaces, and it had plenty of other admirers.
