Following teaser videos and images we shared just a few days ago, Volkswagen has finally taken the virtual sheets off its GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo for GT PlayStation, and it looks amazing!

According to VW, the engine roaring under the bonnet of the GTI Supersport is a VR6 TSI that is capable of producing 503hp and 665 Nm of torque, coupled with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG). This allows the virtual GTI to sprint from 0-100 kilometers per hour in only 3.6 seconds. At full throttle, the virtual racer reaches a top speed of over 300 km/h. The gigantic power output is transferred to the virtual asphalt via 4MOTION all-wheel drive and 20-inch GTI advanced alloy wheels.

The basic shape of the GTI Supersport’s body is still reminiscent of GTI ancestors but have been optimized for an extremely low centre of gravity. A widespread use of carbon elements makes the new digital supercar a real lightweight with a power-to-weight ratio of only 2.5 kilograms per horsepower.

At the broad, powerful front end of the aerodynamically optimized body, prominent features are vertical light modules and generous air intakes with the honeycomb configuration typical of the model. While the broad shoulders at the rear provide the ideal ventilation for the brakes, the prominent roof-edge spoiler and flamboyant diffuser make the Supersport hug the track when fighting for the fastest lap time.

The VW GTI Supersport can be clothed in “Reflex Silver”, “Gran Turismo Red”, “Lapiz Blue” or “Oryx White” and is now available to Gran Turismo 6 players for downloading.
