After a little bit of teasing, Aston Martin is finally unveiling its Design Prototype 100 Vision Gran Turismo Concept at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that makes it into Gran Turismo 6 in July. With the DP-100, the company's designers have gotten a chance to shrug off the shackles of realism and create the first-ever Aston Martin "road car" with the engine mounted behind the driver.

Designed and engineered over the course of six months by the Aston Martin Design team, the crew started from a clean sheet of paper and were allowed to design whatever they liked with no concerns about production feasibility. At the front, there's the brand's classic grille shape, but otherwise the concept is completely original. The shape of the DP-100 is beautifully simple, looking like a collection of intersecting arches in profile.

 Of course, in Gran Turismo 6, gamers are going to want to race the car more than look at it. The DP-100 employs Aston Martin's famous V12 engine coupled with two turbochargers to produce 800 horsepower. Active aerodynamic aids keep it planted during cornering, as well.
Aston Martin has shown the world what it has to say about Gran Turismo 6. The DP-100 Vision Gran Turimso hits the virtual racetrack with 800 hp worth of mid-engined fury and an intriguing, futuristic look.

Under the guidance of design director Marek Reichman, Aston shook its creativity loose and penned a downright menacing track car with distinctive features all over a wide body that stands only slightly higher than a vacuum cleaner. Points of visual emphasis include the headlights tucked back in the raised fenders, a shovel-like front spoiler, a huge rear diffuser and LED rear light blades framed by the rear spoiler.
Aston Martin began the design process six months ago and used the same sketching and 3D modeling techniques that it uses for its sports cars. The video game car's design doesn't just have a furiously fast look but also carefully honed suspension settings and active aerodynamics designed to boost its in-game performance. The car is powered by an 800-bhp twin-turbo V12 engine that breaks away from Aston's history by finding a home amidships.

The DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo will be available for use in the GT6 PlayStation3 game in July. Back in the physical world, the car itself isn't likely to make an appearance on the track, but some of its design elements may show up down the road.
"As with the many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that we’ll launch in the offline world so the importance of this project should not be underestimated," said Reichman.
