MINI goes all virtual for their latest model, the Clubman Vision Gran Turismo, for the successful Sony PlayStation 3 racing game Gran Turismo®6.

MINI is one of a long list of car manufactures, invited by President of Polyphony Digital Inc. Kazunori Yamauchi to design cars to mark the 15th anniversary of the 72 million plus selling Gran Turismo video game franchise, and the Clubman Vision Gran Turismo is the latest work.

The car features a large central air intake, which extends down to just above the ground, reduced ground clearance, wider track and front splitters that regulate airflow to cool the high-performance engine and brakes. The bodywork is also elongated which gives the car a longer and much lower silhouette than the base model Countryman. "MINI has many highly emotional achievements to its name in motor racing. The MINI Clubman Vision Grand Turismo literally puts these onto the virtual racetrack in Gran Turismo 6. The image of a go-kart on the road has recurring appeal," says Anders Warming, Head of MINI Design.

Engine size is not revealed but the MINI Clubman Vision Gran Turismo is said to have a whopping 395 hp which gives the little pocket rocket a top speed of 290 km/h and a 0 to 100km/h time of just 3.5 secs.
