Volkswagen Vision GTI Roadster for GT6 Scores 4Motion and 500HP Twin-Turbo VR6

The GranTurismo Vision concept series is still in roll-out mode – there are perhaps 20 more special concept cars still to come from all sorts of brands, including Lexus, Subaru Alfa-Romeo and more.

Subaru’s looks very tasty – stay tuned for more details on Subie’s fast wagon prototype.

For today, however, all eyes are on the VW #VisionGTI – a deliciously chopped-top roadster that is also packing huge four-wheel-drive power. Tallies are nearly 500-horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque to the 4Motion drivetrain. A seven-speed DSG is also in the mix – ensuring this little GTI will be running hot with the GT-Rs and other dedicated sports-cars in the GT6 universe.

The full-scale prototype debuts tomorrow at the annual VW festival in Worthersee tomorrow, May 29 – and is likely to be a runner with functional engine parts versus a clay model.

Great news overall that a twin-turbocharged VR6 is on the radar of the Volkswagen Group. Fingers crossed we see something this bonkers and fast for the road some time in the future!
