Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo

Volkswagen has unveiled the GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo, which is a Golf GTI show car that was originally created as a purely electronic CGI entity for Gran Turismo 6. The two-seat convertible is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbocharged TSI engine that produces 503 horsepower and a mighty 413 pound-feet of torque between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm; from just 2,000 revs, 369 lb-ft of that torque is available. The power of the TSI engine is transferred to the 20-inch wheel-and-tire combination via a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission and a 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system. The lightweight, 3133-pound sportscar sprints from 0 to 60 mph in an estimated 3.5 seconds and goes onto a top track speed of 192 mph. The GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo sports a radiant, intensive red metallic color – a new interpretation of the classic Golf GTI “Tornado Red.” All bolt-on parts are designed in matte carbon as an accent that complements the high-gloss red of the body.
