VW GTI Supersport GT6-23

Volkswagen has revealed a GTI with over 500 hp that anyone can own, well anyone that has a PlayStation 3 and the Gran Turismo 6 game. The Volkswagen GTI Supersport joins last year’s roadster in the virtual realm, looking good in a super wide three-door body and 20-inch wheels at each corner. It looks like a more hardcore version of the Design Vision GTI Concept from Wörthersee 2013.

Prominent design features include vertical light modules and generous air intakes with the GTI’s trademark honeycomb mesh. While the broad shoulders at the rear provide the ideal ventilation for the brakes, the prominent roof-edge spoiler and flamboyant diffuser sucks the Supersport to the track when fighting for the fastest lap time.

Powering the GTI Supersport is a VR6 TSI engine with 503 hp and a massive 665 Nm of virtual torque, enough to catapult the mega Golf from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds. A top speed of over 300 km/h means that this is a hatchback that can mix it with the supercars. Power is laid down via a seven-speed DSG box and 4Motion all-wheel drive.

This virtual beast can be yours in Reflex Silver, Gran Turismo Red, Lapiz Blue or Oryx White. Mad? Check out similarly wacky Vision Gran Turismo creations by MINI, Mazda, Infiniti, Chevrolet, Toyota, Nissan, BMW and Mercedes-Benz here.
