The Nike ONE 2022 is a hypothetical vehicle designed by Phil Frank of Nike in association with Polyphony Digital. It only appears in Gran Turismo 4.

Background[]

The Nike ONE resembles a "Sci-Fi" buggy, capable of a 230 mph (370 km/h) top speed and equipped with a eight-gear automatic transmission. However the top speed of 230 mph (370 km/h) can only be obtained by drivers at their physical peak; this information is obtained by use of a wearable generator suit.

In the game, the Nike ONE is only capable of a 160 mph (260 km/h) top speed. The fuel bar is also not shown when driving this vehicle.

Acquisition[]
