Volkswagen is sending a new supercar – the GTI Supersport – into the digital race circuit. Gran Turismo 6 players can now download this latest digital supercar. Volkswagen, which is expanding its GTI fleet, put a 503 HP VR6 TSI and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) in this supercar.
The roadster entered the game last year but now it’s the turn of the new version of the GTI to wreak havoc on Gran Turismo 6, exclusively on PlayStation 3.
The Supersport is designed for racing and it’s clearly what racers want. The virtual GTI has 665 Nm of torque, enabling it to go from a standing start to 100 kilometers per hour in just 3.6 seconds. The virtual racer can achieve a top speed of over 300 kph at full throttle. The Supersport is equipped with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and a set of 20-inch GTI advanced alloy wheels.
The Supersport GTI’s basic shape of the body is suggestive of GTI ancestors but this latest GTI offspring has a very strong racing character. The new digital supercar’s proportions and surfaces were optimized to have a very low center of gravity.
Carbon elements are generously used, making it very lightweight. In fact, it has a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.5 kilograms per horsepower. Its prominent front features include vertical light modules and massive air intakes with the honeycomb configuration that we’ve come to expect from the model.
The rear has broad shoulders that accommodate the perfect ventilation for the brakes. It has a bold roof-edge spoiler and flamboyant diffuser that enable the Supersport to hug the track when it’s aiming for the fastest lap time.
This supercar can be clothed in "Reflex Silver", "Lapiz Blue", "Oryx White", or "Gran Turismo Red". The sixth generation of the legendary racing game offered only on the PlayStation has been around since 2013. There are 37 circuits and nearly 1,200 vehicles to choose from for this series.
