How did we miss this!?
It has been about two weeks since the amazing Subaru Viziv GT concept was revealed for Gran Turismo 6 – but seeing its details up close still quickens the pulse. We absolutely love these chiseled and chopped lines, the proportions of an ultra-low shooting brake, and the detailing throughout. It is a stunning interpretation of the ultimate Subaru track car.
The tech details are a turbo 2.0-liter boxer in front, supplemented by twin electric motors in back and a single electric motor in front. The combination delivers 591-horsepower and 593 pound-feet of torque — enough to slingshot this beauty out of the carousel with Bugatti-like ferocity. Top speed is not officially listed, but we estimate a 199-mph theoretical V-max in the game, with altered gearing on the top cogs.
The Viziv GT is a bold statement of Subaru’s confidence and ideas for the future. It is worth watching: Subaru’s sales are on an absolute tear with five years of double-digit gains during a largely down market.
It might be time for this hard-working rally icon of a brand to reward itself with a supercar.
The Viziv GT is an excellent place to start the ideation process, and we can;t wait to see where it leads.
