Sony's PlayStation 3 racing game Gran Turismo 6 now features the latest concept car from Infiniti, a beautiful car that, if it ever makes it into production, will be more expensive than most of us could ever afford.

The Infiniti Concept car comes to Gran Turismo 6 this week through the 1.15 update. After you've applied it, you can purchase the car from the Vision GT area inside the "My Home" menu. Pricing was not announced. Alternatively, you can get the sexy new car by completing a lap (regardless of your time) via a new Seasonal Event, which Sony says is available for a limited time only.

As for the car itself, the Infiniti Concept was created out of Infiniti's design center in Beijing. "Part beautiful and part beast, its shape is powerful, sensual, and ambitious; a mix of track machine and the dream of our Chinese designer to create a seductive racing language for Infiniti," Sony writes on the Gran Turismo website.

The car's design also aims to capture a feeling of youth, romance, and Asian creativity, apparently. Sony goes on to list off more specifications that go way over my head, but a car-lover would surely enjoy.

"Needless to say, this project went beyond a mere study of styling and involved thorough examination of aerodynamic and engine performance," Sony wrote.

"The front mid-ship / trans-axle powertrain is a combination of 4.5L V8 N/A engine and 1 motor. In a low-speed area, the motor delivers overwhelming torque to the ferocious beast, and in a high-speed area, the V8 N/A engine delivers immense power with sensual exhaust note as though its top speed is unlimited."

"The trans-axle layout brings the finely distributed 45:55 front/rear mass balance that fills users with the joy of driving by actively drifting the rear," the description goes on. "Young engineers with great driving skills made many laps of virtual tests to refine the dynamic characteristics. As for aerodynamics, the under-floor airflow control, front and back diffusers, and uniquely-shaped rear spoiler enable this car to demonstrate high performance without compromising the impact of the body design."
