Those 'Baby' Honda NSX Patents Were Actually For A Gran Turismo Concept

Honda's new Vision Gran Turismo concept looks to recent match patent drawings of a baby brother for the NSX

Remind me later

Remember those patent images that appeared to show a ‘baby’ Honda NSX? The car they depict has now been revealed, and it’s, err, not real.

Yep, a car that matches the images - right down to the F1-style steering wheel - has been outed as another one of those Vision Gran Turismo concepts. To give it its full title, it’s the ‘Honda Sports Vision Gran Turismo’. Colour us disappointed.

Honda - Those 'Baby' Honda NSX Patents Were Actually For A Gran Turismo Concept - News

It’s been created for the franchise’s newest release, Gran Turismo Sport. Since it’s not the most outlandish of shapes, there is at least hope that Honda might make a full size, real life version, as has been done for past Vision GT concepts. But a production version? We highly doubt it, but if you remember, the first patent drawings we saw of this were a couple of years ago, so who knows - perhaps there were plans beyond just a video game car at some stage.

Is driving the virtual version enough of a consolation for you? Gran Turismo Sport is out on 17 October in North America and 18 October in Europe.
