Back in May 2013, Volkswagen teased the world with the Design Vision GTI. An unmatched 370 kW / 503 PS Golf. The progressive design study is based on the seventh-generation GTI that was in Europe, transferring the design and power potential of the icon to the world of car racing. Visually, particularly intriguing: The design team under the aegis of Klaus Bischoff (Head of Design of Volkswagen Brand) has drawn the C pillars and side sills outward as autonomous body elements, thus creating space for substantially enlarged track widths and specially developed 20-inch wheels (with 235 tyres in the front, 275 tyres in the rear). The “Design Vision GTI” achieves 300 km/h, and despite extreme modifications, it comes across as very homogeneous thanks to the precise styling based on the Volkswagen design DNA: this “Super-GTI” could start tomorrow in a racing series!
Now you can view the actual car at the Los Angeles Motorshow. Not around at Los Angeles? Well you can check out the video below for a bit of a teaser.
