According to the report, the new virtual concept was originally introduced as the RX-Vision’s GT3 racing version revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2015. This RX-Vision GT3 just like its real-life concept pays respect to the iconic rotary engine associated with the brand, which set to be exclusive only on the Gran Turismo Sport from 25 May this year.

These new features include a newly sculpted bonnet, which is part of the agenda for full aero racing, a wider body kit for new tracks, deep front splitter, massive rear diffuser, towering wing, and fender louvers.

The new concept will weigh 1,250 kg and the weight distribution from the front of the model to the rear will be a ratio of 48:52, making the model worthy of the virtual race track. This RX-Vision GT3 Concept was teased for the first time by Mazda at the Gran Turismo Championship World Final in November 2019, with a sketch.

According to Kazunori Yamauchi, the CEO of the Polyphony Digital, said:
“I think all of you here will be able to tell, that with these proportions it will be a really good car to drive. The roof is obviously very low, and the 4 tires are placed on the furthest corners, so you get the impression that this car will have high-stability.”
