Powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo VR6 TSI engine that produces 503 horsepower and a massive 491 pound-feet of torque, the Volkswagen GTI Roadster Concept is ferociously fast, its speed exacerbated by the low-cut windshield.

The GTI Roadster (or Volkswagen Vision Gran Turismo, as it is also called) is a supercar that has been designed for a singular mission: the hugely popular PlayStation 3 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 Concept 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 Volkswagen GTI Roadster 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 Volkswagen GTI Roadster Concept is presented in a bright, vivid metallic red, a modern interpretation of the classic GTI color.
