There was a car designed for cars at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Sunday afternoon, and it was absolute proof that the virtual and real worlds of cars are merging. Gran Turismo SPORT video games Make your debut as a real car, then sweep away your opponents on the famous hill-climbing track.
The normal direction of car design in video games is to virtualize real-world cars and race them online, with their real-world handling characteristics becoming more consistent with each passing virtual iteration.
But this time, the order is reversed, and the futuristic McLaren Solus GT concept first appeared in the 2017 Gran Turismo SPORT video game and became a fan favorite, so it was decided to create 25 customer cars based on the virtual car, complete with a raging 10,000 rpm’s naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine and game-specified seven-speed sequential transmission.

The real-world engine produces 829 hp and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque for a vehicle weight of less than 1,000 kg. Computer simulations carried out ahead of the dynamic’s debut suggested a 0-100 km/h time of around 2.5 seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph.
When the car was first released, all 25 cars were snapped up and are believed to cost around $4 million each, so there must have been a fair amount of relief when the Solus GT set the fastest time on Sunday afternoon Happy. A full second in 45.34 seconds ahead of second-placed Travis Pastrana’s Subaru GL Family Huckster (46.37 seconds) and hitting nearly 20 mph cross the finish line.

Pastrana’s Subaru GL Family Huckster started out as a Subaru GL wagon, but by the time they were finished, not much of the original car was left. There’s still a flat-four engine under the hood, but this one sends 862 horsepower to the car’s all-wheel-drive system through a six-speed sequential transmission.
In addition to winning the day, the McLaren Solus recorded the third-fastest time on the hill climb for a production car behind McMurtry Speirling (39.08) and 1360 hp Nio EP9 Pure Electric Track Supercar (44.32).
You’ll notice that McMurtry Speirling’s time recorded at last year’s Festival of Speed is again more than six seconds faster, and that’s because it’s a very special car that’s really bad… on the road itself.successor McMurtry Sperling fan car prototype in action at the timeknown as the McMurtry Spéirling PURE, was first shown at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Became the first commercial sealed skirt fan truck in history.
