VW GTI Hatch Vision Gran Turismo Revealed (w/Video)

Following last year's Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo, VW today revealed a new Vision Gran Turismo car based on the GTI hatchback. The Vision Gran Turismo cars are a series of digital concepts from manufacturers like Nissan, Infiniti, Chevrolet, Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, Mazda, and Mitsubishi, which exist only in the digital world of the Gran Turismo video game. The Vision Gran Turismo cars are created with no performance or design limits in place, resulting in vehicles that are wildly different from what we would ever see on actual roads.

Whereas Volkswagen's first Vision Gran Turismo was a radical, low-slung roadster version of the GTI, the new GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo is a fixed-roof hatchback version. Volkswagen said its goal with the GTI Supersport was to create a unique performance concept, while maintaining the legendary GTI shape. The result is an aggressively styled Volkswagen Golf GTI hatch that appears more at home on the race track than it would on the street.

The GTI Supersports features the same turbocharged 3.0-liter VR6 engine as the roadster, pushing out 503 hp. Combined with the impressive power-to-weight ratio of 5.5 pounds per horsepower, the featherweight GTI Supersports smacks 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

The new Volkswagen GTI Supersports Vision Gran Turismo is available for download in Gran Turismo 6 on the Playstation 3.
