Volkswagen to Unveil GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo at Woerthersee Festival

Design sketches show extreme GTI concept for the Sony PlayStation videogame

May 22, 2014

The GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo is a supercar that has been designed for a singular mission: the hugely popular Sony® PlayStation® videogame. This extreme and ultimate interpretation of the Golf GTI will make its debut at the Woerthersee Festival in Austria that begins on May 28th.

Like the Design Vision GTI that debuted at the same event in 2013, the GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo uses the Golf GTI Design DNA to create a strong sporting statement, with distinctive horizontal graphics.

Powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo VR6® TSI® engine that produces 503 horsepower and a massive 491 pound-feet of torque, the GTI Roadster, Design Gran Turismo concept is ferociously fast, its speed exacerbated by the low-cut windshield. The seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission is programmed to give incredibly fast shifts on the racetrack.

Roadholding on the track is optimized thanks to an integrated rear diffuser, a gigantic rear wing, and a race-car-style front splitter. The car is equipped with 20-inch wheels that carry 235/35 front and 275/30 rear tires; 4Motion® all-wheel drive helps to transmit the torque to the pavement. Supercar-style vented disc brakes are fitted, with a diameter of 15.0 inches up front and 14.0 inches at the back.

The GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo is presented in a bright, vivid metallic red, a modern interpretation of the classic GTI color.
