Introduced earlier this year at the Wörthersee Tuning Festival, the Volkswagen Golf Design Vision GTI concept is less mad than the Golf GTI W12 Concept which was powered by a 6.0-Liter twin-turbo W12 producing 650ch and based on the previous generation (mk6) Golf . But it's still a brilliant machine that hints at future technology that could be used in the upcoming GTI models.
The Design Vision GTI concept is powered by a 3.0-Liter twin-turbo VR6 engine producing 496 Hp and 413lb ft of torque. The engine sends its power to all four wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The car is able to hit 100 km/h (62mph) in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 300 Km/h (The W12 GTI: 3,7 seconds and 200 mph). If you'd like to know what it feels like to drive it, head on to Autocar where the guys had the chance to take the car for a ride at Los Angeles. Enjoy the high res pictures in the gallery below!
