Production Version Of Mercedes-Benz Vision GT Coming?

The Mercedes-Benz Vision GT is perhaps the most stunning concept ever created by the brand. While it was assumed that the Mercedes-Benz Vision Grand Turismo shall exist only in the virtual realm, the Vision GT could actually be gearing up for an unconventional production run.

Mercedes-Benz Vision GTThe rumors and confusion about the real car were ignited by a James Edition post. The post is offering a shiny new Mercedes-Benz Vision GT for $1.5 million. The company behind the sale is Florida based J&S World Wide Holdings, which has a vision to build the Vision on the chassis of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT.

What the real Mercedes-Benz Vision GT would be like:

  • J&S World Wide would use the SLS AMG GT chassis as a base and carbon fiber for the body. That goes a long way toward explaining the lofty asking price and also to reduce pesky curb weight in favor of power.
  • The final product would tip the scales at a full 200 pounds less than the SLS AMG GT, which is comprised of mostly aluminum and bulky steel.
  • Performance cues will be the same 6.2-liter V8 found in the SLS AMG GT mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
  • Output should be faster than the 591 horses of the SLS due to weight reduction, with a 0-60 mile per hour sprint beating the 3.6 seconds.
  • Holding true to the glorious concept renderings, it would boast a special chrome paint and be perched upon custom ADV.1 wheels.

Mercedes-Benz Vision GTIt is unclear if the enterprise of building the Mercedes-Benz Vision GT concept is legal or real, but J&S World Wide is no stranger to this sort of thing. The company has already built the street-legal Batmobile tumbler, the Tron cycle and other fabulous fare. Reports indicate that there are 5 Mercedes-Benz Vision GT cars on order, so we shall just wait to see what unfolds!
