From virtual to reality, Mercedes arguably stole the show in Los Angeles this year with its Vision Gran Turismo concept.

Built for the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 video game for the PlayStation 3, the Vision Gran Turismo might be that one car everyone wished the German automaker would green light for production. Unfortunately chances of that happening are slim, but hey, one can hope.

Boasting 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, the Vision Gran Turismo is one sleek, low-riding machine that weighs only 3,053 lbs. At the very least, those with PS3s and a copy of Gran Turismo 6 come December will be able to experience the car virtually – it’s better than nothing.

See more of this beauty in our first look video of the Vision Gran Turismo from the LA Auto Show.
