Vw previews the Design Vision GTI ahead of the 2013 Worthersee Tour

Article by Christian A., on May 8, 2013

As you may know already each year there is a GTI meeting at Wörthersee and each year Volkswagen brings some interesting vehicles there. For this year, the German manufacturer prepared the Design Vision GTI, an impressive GTI powered by a 3.0-liter which delivers an impressive 503 hp @ 6,300 rpm and 560 Nm of torque between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm.

All the power is delivered to the front and rear wheels via a dual clutch gearbox (DSG) and an all-wheel drive. The Design Vision GTI can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph. In order to stop in time, the vehicle features 380-mm brake discs on the front and 356 mm discs on the rear.

The brake discs are hidden behind the 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in high performance tires. The design of the new rims adopts the formal concept of the “Austin” GTI wheel.

If a standard Golf VII GTI measures 4,268 mm x 1,799 mm x 1,442 mm, the Design Vision GTI is wider and flatter: 4,253 mm x 1,870 mm x 1,385 mm. In terms of design, the new vehicle follows the traditional GTI triad of “black – white - red”. The vehicle comes in a White Club finish, while the add-on parts come in piano black.
