Mercedes-AMG is giving us a sneak peak of new things to come from AMG. It’s called the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo and Mercedes tells us it’s coming soon. It will first appear in the new Gran Turismo 6 video game which goes on sale December 6. Mercedes-Benz global has just released a teaser image of the new AMG supercar and tell us it will be fully revealed tomorrow.

Polyphony Digital Inc., creator of PlayStation’s best-selling Gran Turismo franchise, has announced a unique partnership with a number of leading automotive manufacturers, design houses and other leading global brands. Design teams from the major automakers including Mercedes-Benz, will create concept models giving a unique insight into the future of the automotive sector.

Their designs will then be recreated as working cars for the new Gran Turismo 6 game due for release on 6th December, 2013. The initiative celebrates 15 years of the 70-million-selling franchise and is known as "Vision Gran Turismo".

“This is a very exciting project,” explained legendary Gran Turismo creator and President of Polyphony Digital Inc. Kazunori Yamauchi. “Ever since we released the first Gran Turismo game 15 years ago, GT has resonated with the automotive world and we have enjoyed many different and fascinating collaborations. But Vision Gran Turismo is probably our most ambitious to date. It promises to provide a window into the future of automotive design that we can bring to life in Gran Turismo 6.”

He went on to say, “We are extremely grateful to all of our design partners in this project for their amazing birthday present to Gran Turismo to celebrate the franchise’s 15 year anniversary, and are so excited to share this gift with our fans. Working closely with the leading lights of automotive design, as well as some design teams from outside of the industry, has been a rare privilege and we look forward to sharing their creations with fans of Gran Turismo from this year through to 2014.”

Gran Turismo 6 will be released on 6th December, 2013, and the game is already available for pre-order through a number of retailers. Those pre-ordering the GT6 Anniversary Edition or the standard edition will receive a number of additional cars when the game is released.
