About the Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo
Based on successful GTI DNA, Volkswagen Design has developed a highly distinctive supercar: the “GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo”.
The design owes much to the successful history of the GTI: style-defining design elements from the various GTI generations illustrate the extraordinary evolution of this vehicle. Boasting a visionary design, the Roadster promises an immediate driving experience – the extreme acceleration can be experienced directly through the low-cut windscreen.
Powered by a 3.0 twin-turbo VR6 TSI engine, the “GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo” delivers 503 HP（503 BHP）with an enormous torque of 665 Nm（490 lb/ft). The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with sports programming ensures phenomenal acceleration and fast gearshifts on the race track.
An aerodynamically optimized front and rear spoiler, together with an integrated diffuser element at the rear, achieve the required downforce for excellent roadholding. Fitted with 20-inch wheels in size 235/35 (front) and 275/30 (rear), the massive torque can be transferred reliably to the track via 4 driven wheels. The supercar features ventilated ceramic brakes, 14 inches in diameter at the front and 14 inches at the rear.
The “GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo” is presented in a bright, intense metallic red, a modern interpretation of the classic GTI Red.
The result is a fascinating and exceptionally dynamic extreme sports car with a sophisticated design for the race track in which players can gain a unique impression of what it’s like to drive in the GTI world.
