In 2014, at the legendary GTI meet at Wörthersee, Volkswagen is erasing the boundaries between the virtual and real worlds. That is because, in a world premiere, the inventor of the Golf GTI is presenting a show car which was originally created as a purely computer generated car in bits and bytes for the PlayStation 3 classic Gran Turismo 6: the "GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo".
The two-seat convertible is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine that produces a power of 370 kW / 503 PS. The V6 TSI develops a maximum torque of 560 Nm between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm; 500 Nm of that torque is already available at 2,000 rpm in the direct-injection petrol engine. The enormous power of the TSI is transferred to the 20-inch wheel-tyre combination via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) and all-wheel drive system (4MOTION). The lightweight 1420 kg super sports car reaches 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. V/max: 309 km/h!
