From the European game box:

From the arcade to the armchair! Sega's revolutionary SVP chip puts you in the driving seat of the most technically advanced game ever. Stunning polygon graphics, four selectable viewpoints and high speed action combine to make this the greatest race of your life.

Comment

The only Megadrive/Genesis game to use the Sega Virtua Processor (SVP) chip, which was developed as a rival to Nintendo's Super FX chip. Despite being technically superior to the Super FX chip, it was also much more expensive. The technology was later abandoned in preference to the Sega 32X.

Currently, no emulator can run Virtua Racing due to lack of information about the SVP chip.
