Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Gran Turismo: Yes, Please
For today’s entry in “Things That We Wish Existed in the Real World and Not Just in Video Games,” we’d like to introduce you to the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Gran Turismo, which has also secured itself a place on our list of “Things That We Wish Existed in the Real World and Not Just in Video Games But Also Wish Had Slightly Shorter and Easier-to-Remember Names.”
The—deep breath—Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Gran Turismo is based upon the Concept XR-PHEV that made its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show back in November. The Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV EVO GT is available as part of Update 1.08 for Gran Turismo 6 for PlayStation®3, and can either be purchased from the [Vision GT] area within [CARS] section in “My Home,“ or unlocked by completing a lap in the limited-time-only Seasonal Event.

Both Mitsubishi’s Advanced Vehicle Research and Development Group and Aerodynamic Engineering Development Group were on board for the development of the digital concept, giving it an “Athlete Form” design that emphasizes aggressive driving and resembles “an athlete at crouching position on a starting line.”
There’s no indication whatsoever that Mitsubishi will make a corporeal rendering of their digital creation, but if we may, we’d ask Mitsubishi to reconsider their stance. Because the world would definitely be better for having the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV Evolution Gran Turismo in it.
