The SRT Tomahawk Vision GT concept is ready to blow the doors off of every previous Vision Gran Turismo concept.
Available in three trims in Gran Turismo 6 at a future date, the SRT Tomahawk comes in the X, GTS-R and S variety with the Tomahawk X boasting a borderline silly total peak output of 2,590 hp with auxiliary drive.
According to the American automaker, the SRT Tomahawk Vision GT is capable of generating pneumatic energy in three ways: pre-race full charge, braking regen charge through independent power units at each front wheel and as part of the vehicle’s stability control system. More importantly, the pneumatic energy can be released in five ways: front wheel power drive, fast actuation of aerodynamic panels, charging the variable spring rate suspension system, wake modification for low drag on high speed runs on long straights and pressurization of the driver’s G-suit.
Yes, the driver of this car must wear a G-suit to cope with the massive cornering force.

The mid-engine, all-wheel drive Tomahawk is powered by a 7.0-liter V10 naturally-aspirated engine that provides 2,168 hp and 895 lb-ft of torque on its own, at least in the Tomahawk X model. Considering how difficult it must be to control a 2,590-hp sports car even in the virtual world, the Tomahawk GTS-R with 1,137 hp (1,450 hp total peak) and 719 lb-ft of torque from the engine might be more manageable on the race tracks of Gran Turismo 6.
Those that are looking for even more controllable power can turn to the S model, which has 792 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque from its V10 and is capable of total peak power of 1,007 hp. Delivering an impressive power-to-weight ratio, the Tomahawk X has a curb weight of 1,658 lbs while the GTS-R tips the scales at 1,459 lbs. The S is the heaviest of the bunch with 2,026 lbs and was likely added to the game so that virtual drivers in Gran Turismo 6 can use the Tomahawk in certain race campaigns that are restricted by performance or weight.
