Volkswagen teases with supercar GTI

15.04.2015

MANY of you will be familiar with the PlayStation®game, Gran Turismo and the fact that Volkswagen love to produce mad GTI concepts for fans. Combine the two and you get a digitally created VW supercar that enthusiasts can belt around a virtual track for hours.

The GTI Supersport concept features a 375kW/665Nm VR6 TSI motor mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG). The new creation is said to go from 0-100km/h in 3.6 seconds thanks to a 4Motion all-wheel-drive system while top speed is in excess of 300 km/h.

The concept looks like a GTI, only it is far broader, lower and more aerodynamic. There are almost cartoonish vertical light modules and air intakes with the signature honeycomb configuration typical of the model. The vehicle’s broad shoulders have been made more prominent at the rear to provide ventilation for the brakes, while the roof-edge spoiler and diffuser are there for extra downforce.

Volkswagen's latest digital creation can be had in Reflex Silver, Gran Turismo Red, Lapiz Blue or Oryx White and is now available to Gran Turismo 6 players for downloading.
