Since the Gran Turismo video game franchise put out the call to automakers to design cars for its virtual streets, the results have all been stunning, and the new concept from Mitsubishi is no exception.

Called the XR-PHEV Evolution Vision Gran Turismo Concept, Mitsubishi took one of its previous concepts, dropped it down and added some aggressive features to make it look like a hardcore hot hatch. A big wing out back completes the look.

Power in the virtual world will come from a plug-in hybrid setup that sends power to all four wheels through an eight-speed dual clutch transmission.

The car will be available to gamers as part of a downloadable pack that includes a tribute to race car driver Ayrton Senna.
