Volkswagen fans all around the world are gathering for the annual Worthersee event in Austria, where some of the best Golf and GTI models come out to play – including ones specifically designed for the event.
This is the case with VW’s own GTI Worthersee Concept, which has – as per tradition – been designed by apprentices. The automaker is teasing the model for the impending reveal, with an image depicting it fully covered and another one surrounded in mystery but still showcasing the headlights, taillights, and rear design. The concept is the work of five skilled men and women between the ages of 18 and 23, who used CAD and 3D printing technology. The rear seen in the teaser makes use of various shades of blue and was created on a graphics tablet.
Inside, everything in the cabin is controlled via an app, allowing the user to adjust the drivers seat in real time – Eric Miguel Lehrach (21), the team spokesperson comments this “is a real innovation,” and that the “sports seat is adjusted electrically using a touch function from a tablet PC or a smartphone.” This year the Worthersee has 36 years under its belly and it’s also the 10th consecutive year for an official Volkswagen concept – and we’re expecting other members of the group, from Audi, Skoda, and SEAT to also honor the event with their own concepts.
