It turns out that the digital concept car created by Bugatti for driving simulation game "Gran Turismo" is made of more than pixels.

On Monday, Bugatti confirmed that its outlandish Concept Gran Turismo is coming to the Frankfurt motor show and that it will be taking center stage on its stand.

In terms of outward appearance, the car was developed to pay homage to the brand's glorious racing past while simultaneously sporting the latest in terms of cutting-edge aerodynamics, racing and performance technology.

"In the Bugatti Veyron, we have developed a super sports car which unites two characteristics, the beauty and the beast," explained Achim Anscheidt, the head of Bugatti Design. "The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo embodies the performance beast. It has a more radical and extreme style. This is a thorough-bred Bugatti for the virtual race track, not for the street."

However, the aforementioned Veyron, the fastest and one of the most exclusive and expensive production cars in the world, has now ceased to be.

Supercar collectors are wondering what the company has up its sleeve in terms of a replacement, and the fact that Bugatti has decided to bring a virtual concept to real life has sparked excitement that the company's next production car could well look very similar to the Gran Turismo concept.
