VW teases the GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo ahead of 2014 Worthersee Festival

Article by Christian A., on May 23, 2014

For the 2014 Worthersee Festival in Austria that begins on May 28th, Volkswagen prepared the GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo, a supercar developed for the well-known Gran Turismo videogame on PlayStation. The new GTI Roadster Vision follows the same path as the Design Vision GTI, that was introduced back in 2013, which means it uses the Golf GTI Design DNA in order to create a strong sporting statement.

The concept car is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo VR6 TSI engine that generates 503 hp and 665 Nm (491 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is bolted to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission that delivers the power through the permanent 4Motion all-wheel drive system and offers incredibly fast shifts on the racetrack.

The new concept car features an impressive design and the first look shows us a front end dominated by the big air intake, vertical LED daytime running lights and stylish headlights. The well-known red stripe that is featured on all Golf GTI models is also present.

The rear end is even more extreme as it features a big wing, thin LED taillights and a carbon fiber air diffuser.

The exterior design is completed by the 20-inch wheels wrapped in high performance tires, which hide the supercar-style vented disc brakes with a diameter of 15.0 inches up front and 14.0 inches at the back.

In addition, the GTI Roadster Vision comes in a vivid metallic red color, a modern interpretation of the classic GTI color.The interior shows two sports bucket seats but also a badass steering wheel.
