Jaguar has unveiled its third all-electric virtual gaming sports car – the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roaster. Jaguar’s latest all-electric virtual race car joins the grid for the launch of Gran Turismo 7 – the latest version of the world-renowned racing game. 

The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster is an all-electric single-seater which combines the race-proven powertrain from the Coupé with a sculpted form inspired by the iconic Jaguar D-type. 

The Roadster is powered by three electric motors generating a total power output of more than 1,020PS (750kW) and instant, maximum torque of 1,200Nm.

It can accelerate from 0-60mph in under two seconds and has a maximum speed in excess of 200mph.

Enhancing the experience still further are the new features that Polyphony Digital has developed for Gran Turismo 7 which is available for PS4 and PS5 consoles from 4th March. 

The Roadster joins the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé and the extreme Vision Gran Turismo SV endurance racer on the grid.

Oliver Cattell-Ford, Exterior Designer, Jaguar Advanced Design, says: “As a car designer, being part of the team that has delivered three virtual cars for the Gran Turismo series has been a dream project. Since the reveal of the Vision GT Coupé in 2019 and Vision GT SV in 2020, we wanted to curate the perfect way to present the full line-up of the three cars together when we revealed the Roadster – Gran Turismo 7 is the perfect way to do it.”

He adds: “The visual effect is dramatic and wouldn’t look out of place on any track or circuit around the world, from the streets of night-time Tokyo to California’s Laguna Seca raceway.” 

Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo Creator, President of Polyphony Digital Inc., comments: “We are delighted to announce the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Roadster, which completes the trilogy of Jaguar Vision vehicles for Gran Turismo 7. It was a great experience to work with the Design team at Jaguar. We look forward to drivers getting behind the virtual wheel in the new game. All three cars lend themselves perfectly to the exciting new user experience that GT7 will offer.”
