Reflecting Genesis’ design ethos of ‘Athletic Elegance,’ the X Gran Berlinetta VGT Concept is a study in passionate, forward-thinking car design.

Inside, the concept prioritizes essential functions for racing focus, with a digital panoramic interface and steer-by-wire controls for precise handling. Comfort is not overlooked, with quilted, padded bolsters and soft touch points in the carbon cabin.Powering the X Gran Berlinetta VGT is a Lambda 11 V6 engine, augmented by Genesis E-SC technology, delivering a combined 1071hp and 986 lb-ft of torque.
This powerful setup ensures a blend of beauty and performance. Gran Turismo 7 players can gain early access to this car in January 2024 by watching the Manufacturer’s Cup broadcast in GT7, with the car being added directly to their in-game garage.
