Volkswagen Design Vision GTI Concept officially unveiled image

The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently unveiled the Design Vision GTI Concept, during the 2013 Worthersee.

One of the most powerful versions of the VW Golf GTI, and the most powerful one based on the MK7, the Design Vision GTI Concept, is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker officially pulling the wraps off its body, during the 2013 Worthersee. The Volkswagen Design Vision GTI can be easily distinguished thanks to its new front fascia with prominent side blades, with a front splitter and with LED headlights. The model also has a new rear bumper and 20-inch alloy wheels, amongst others.

The VW Design Vision GTI Concept is coming with a driver-oriented cockpit, with a carbon fiber dashboard, a digital instrument cluster, a sport steering wheel and Porsche Cup inspired door handles. The model is also coming with an X-shaped cross member instead of the rear seat, to increase stiffness. Power is being provided by a 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which is producing no less than 503 HP (370 kW) and 560 Nm of torque (413 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a DSG transmission which is sending power to the all-wheel drive system. The Design Vision GTI Concept can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
