Volkswagen showcases 510PS Design Vision GTI at Worthersee

Volkswagen has showcased their new concept car, the Design Vision GTI at the annual Worthersee festival in Reifnitz, Austria. This machine has been based on seventh-generation Golf GTI that was launched last year and has been created especially for the event. However, this is not the first time that VW has built an insanely powerful Golf. Around five to six years ago, they had built a one off Golf with a 6.0-litre biturbo W12 engine that produced a whopping 650PS and 750Nm of torque.  

The Design Vision GTI is powered by a twin turbo 3.0-litre V6 engine that produces 510PS of peak power and 559Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.   

All this power is capable of taking the car from 0-100kmph in 3.9 seconds and then to a top speed of 299kmph. To slow down the car, the German manufacturer has fitted massive carbon ceramic brake discs and 20-inch wheels that are designed to vent the brakes.

The car is wider and lower that it’s standard sibling and overall, it looks very futuristic. It is believed that the designers have taken a minimalist interior along the lines of trackbred Porsches (also under the VW umbrella) in a bid to keep the driver focused on road. This means that they have eliminated many of buttons and switches as well as some conveniences like door handles, making the car a racetrack screamer. 

The Worthersee festival is held by Volkswagen Group every year for all the companies under its banner as a platform showcase their design and technical capabilities. The Volkswagen Design Vision GTI is not likely to be launched ever in the mass market but is an insight into what the German automaker is capable of if given a free hand.
