The GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo is a supercar that has been designed for the popular Sony PlayStation video-game called Gran Turismo. Now this extreme and ultimate interpretation of the Golf GTI will come to life at the Woerthersee Festival in Austria at the end of May.
Like the Design Vision GTI that debuted at the same event in 2013, the GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo uses the Golf GTI Design DNA to create a strong sporting statement, with distinctive horizontal graphics.
It is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo VR6 TSI engine that produces 503hp and a massive 665Nm of torque. Volkswagen claims that the GTI Roadster, Design Gran Turismo concept is ferociously fast; its speed exacerbated by the low-cut windshield. Apart from that, the seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission is programmed to give incredibly fast shifts on the racetrack.
Road-holding on the track is optimized thanks to an integrated rear diffuser, a gigantic rear wing, and a race-car-style front splitter. The car is equipped with 20-inch wheels that carry 235/35 front and 275/30 rear tyres; 4Motion all-wheel drive helps to transmit the torque to the pavement. Supercar-style vented disc brakes are fitted, with a diameter of 15.0 inches up front and 14.0 inches at the back.
The GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo will debut in a bright, vivid metallic red, classic GTI colour at the event. Stay tuned for more updates when it is official reveal soon!
