Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV Concept 2020

A most pace of 255mph, an aerodynamic layout honed to perfection and race-prevailing powertrain era outline the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo SV - the brand new all-electric powered digital race automobile advanced for Gran Turismo, and constructed withinside the real-global as complete-scale layout look at.

The Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo Coupé - the primary all-electric powered Jaguar sports activities automobile created for the globally-famend Gran Turismo collection discovered in October 2019 - has already proved pretty successful, attracting game enthusiasts with its radical, heritage-stimulated layout, driving force-targeted indoors, and first-rate journey and managing.

Yet to the group from Jaguar Design, SV and Jaguar Racing, the Vision GT Coupé represented best the start line for improvement of the Vision GT SV. It became an possibility to re-compare the entirety that would enhance overall performance and in doing so, re-assume what an electric powered Jaguar patience race automobile will be.

Fundamental to that system became specified evaluation of gamer remarks from on line motion pictures and forums. This 'digital global testing' mixed with many hours 'at the back of the wheel' enabled the layout and engineering groups to decide precisely the way to optimise the Vision GT SV to create the precise electric powered gaming patience race automobile.

Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar, said: "Jaguars created for the race music and the street have usually shared the identical DNA - whether or not that is the D-kind and XKSS, or the I-PACE and the I-TYPE. So, whilst the layout group at the back of the Vision GT Coupé have been requested to create the closing electric powered gaming patience racer for Gran Turismo, they labored with engineers from SV and Jaguar Racing to create some thing absolutely special.

"The Vision GT SV is a dramatic and visually arresting automobile which showcases what is feasible whilst the conventional obstacles governing real-global automobile layout are absolutely removed. In bringing this automobile to existence with a large layout look at we have got been capable of show off the maximum severe model of an electric powered Jaguar race automobile this is stimulated via way of means of the beyond however seems fearlessly to the future."

Designed because the closing digital patience racer, the Jaguar Vision GT SV can pay homage to its illustrious forebears now no longer best in a number of styling and surfacing references however in its particular circuit board livery which nods to milestones which includes the Le Mans debuts of the C-kind and D-kind in 1951 and 1954 respectively.

Engineered via way of means of experts

The streamlined, light-weight composite frame shape now homes 4 Jaguar Racing and SV-designed electric powered automobiles to the Coupé's three, producing a mixed output of 1,903PS (1,400kW) and 3,360Nm of immediately torque with the traction and dynamics advantages of sensible all-wheel pressure and torque vectoring. Acceleration from 0-60mph takes simply 1.sixty five seconds, at the manner to a most pace of 255mph.

The mission of harnessing the Gran Turismo SV's energy to supply an excellent greater exhilarating racing enjoy for game enthusiasts fell to Jaguar's SV engineering group.

Jamal Hameedi, Engineering Director, Jaguar SV, said: "We have been given one objective: take the entirety that makes the Jaguar Vision GT Coupé so special - the overall performance, the managing and the soundtrack - and take it to every other level.

"The group did not simply acquire that target - they handed it, growing a digital electric powered automobile which absolutely ought to compete efficiently withinside the extremes of 24-hour patience racing. Not best that, they have been capable of see their paintings withinside the digital global, changed into fact with the manufacturing of the beautiful complete-scale version for you to absolute confidence excite game enthusiasts approximately what is to are available in Gran Turismo."

The Vision GT Coupé's fashionable silhouette remains in reality recognisable withinside the GT SV, together with the curvature of the C-kind and D-kind-stimulated fenders, and - in spite of the extra motor riding the the front axle - the wheelbase stays unchanged at 2,721mm.

Measuring five,540mm from nostril to tail, the GT SV is 861mm longer overall - a alternate pushed completely via way of means of aerodynamics. To supply the extended downforce wanted for extra traction for quicker cornering and extended excessive pace balance on lengthy straights, the GT SV has a brand new the front splitter and a brand new deployable rear wing.

To clear up the regularly conflicting necessities of growing downforce whilst additionally minimising drag, the SV group labored with Jaguar's designers to broaden a complete suite of capabilities which paintings collectively to enhance dynamics, balance, overall performance and efficiency.

In addition to the larger, greater powerful splitter - which produces downforce over the the front axle - apertures withinside the the front valance channel air throughout the face of the the front wheels to lessen turbulence and assist air to float cleanly closer to the rear of the automobile. Air passing thru the wheel wells is likewise smoothed closer to the rear thru go out vents withinside the fenders.

The absolutely enclosed, sculpted underbody - which incorporates a keel detail at the back of the the front axle to resource excessive-pace balance - speeds up airflow, lowering its stress and consequently supporting to lessen lift, earlier than it exits on the rear thru a big venturi.

The unmarried best aero function advanced for the GT SV is its deployable rear wing, stimulated via way of means of patience racing automobiles from Jaguar's wealthy lineage, together with the XJR-14. Meticulously advanced from idea to very last layout thru many iterations, the wing's essential, fixed, phase wraps over and across the lower back of the automobile, mixing easily into the rear haunches.

The wing is designed as an critical detail of the sculpted bodywork whilst additionally imparting the aerodynamic overall performance required for patience racing: transportable sections mechanically upward thrust at pace to supply more downforce whilst wanted however drop lower back to their nominal positions to minimise drag.

As a result, the GT SV has a drag coefficient of Cd 0.398 - remarkably low for a race automobile - however additionally generates 483kg of downforce at 200mph.

Micheal O'Regan, Aerodynamics Senior Engineer, Jaguar SV, said: "All the aerodynamic capabilities were painstakingly optimised thru modern-day computational fluid dynamics evaluation - in precisely the identical manner we do with real-global initiatives which includes the Jaguar I-TYPE Formula E race automobiles.

"What I'm maximum happy with is how we have got advanced the GT SV into a reputable electric powered race automobile with overall performance on a par with modern-day patience race automobiles - and in this kind of brief area of time."

Jaguar Racing engineers advanced the GT SV's amazing quad-motor all-electric powered propulsion device. They additionally designed the device for the primary Jaguar Vision GT automobile, making use of all in their expertise and enjoy from growing the Jaguar I-TYPE over six successive seasons.

The paintings became break up into essential initiatives: A 2d 407PS (300kW) motor to the the front axle to supply the better energy and torque scores required. Then the thermal control device became in addition progressed to deal with the better masses and to make sure that sustained excessive speeds and severe acceleration will be maintained during an patience race.

With one motor riding every wheel, the GT SV's propulsion device generates a mixed output of 1,903PS (1,400kW) and 3,360Nm torque. Each motor has its very own unmarried-pace transmission: those are designed to offer the electricity and robustness wanted for the excessive torque scores, collectively with minimum mass and friction for max efficiency, and the functionality to supply the automobile's 255mph pinnacle pace.

As nicely as electric powered all-wheel pressure the only motor in keeping with wheel configuration additionally allows endless manage of lateral and longitudinal torque distribution, turning in a step-alternate in torque vectoring functionality for even extra traction, agility, and manage.

Power comes from a today's lithium-ion battery percent that is housed low down withinside the GT SV's light, stiff frame shape, turning in a low centre of gravity, a low roll centre and near-ideal weight distribution.

James Barclay, Team Director, Jaguar Racing, said: "Working at the improvement of Jaguar's Formula E I-TYPE race automobiles in parallel with the Vision Gran Turismo SV has given the Jaguar Racing engineers an unparalleled possibility to use their knowledge to 2 exceptional electric powered race automobiles - our maximum superior Formula E automobile but, and an patience racer for the digital global.

"Both were designed and advanced the usage of today's simulation gear to push all-electric powered powertrain and software program era to the limit, and we can not wait to look them carry out in Season 7 and Gran Turismo."

The thermal control device is better via way of means of a further liquid nitrogen circuit which presents more ability to permit the battery to offer most energy for longer whilst closing inside its best temperature range. The nitrogen cooling is likewise related to the enhance button in the cabin to make sure that even throughout the maximum worrying working situations the battery will now no longer exceed its higher temperature limit.

The particular, powertrain soundscape so essential to the visceral riding enjoy of the Jaguar Vision GT Coupé has been in addition better for the GT SV model. Reflecting the growth in energy and torque from the 4 electric powered automobiles to its precursor's three, the GT SV generates a legitimate this is even greater practical and distinctive, and is authentically but futuristically Jaguar. Building to a crescendo on the 40,000rpm redline, it displays the GT SV's proper racing DNA and can provide unrivalled driving force reward.

The enjoy is heightened via way of means of an indoors designed for racing. The pure, sweeping surfaces in the cockpit definitely envelop the motive force and role the devices and flawlessly weighted controls precisely wherein they want to be. Every element is fantastically crafted with absolute precision from superior light-weight substances, together with the brand new TYPEFIBRE fabric used to cowl the 2 sculpted composite seats. 

TYPEFIBRE is an progressive device of overall performance substances being advanced via way of means of Jaguar to supply a lighter opportunity to leather-based with first-rate consolation and durability. TYPEFIBRE fabric could be examined via way of means of Jaguar Racing withinside the I-TYPE five throughout season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
