At the annual GTI festival at Wörthersee, Austria, from May 28 to 31, Volkswagen will erase the boundaries between the virtual and real worlds. That is because the GTI Roadster, Vision Gran Turismo is a Golf GTI show car that was originally created as a purely electronic CGI entity for the Sony PlayStation®3 classic ‘Gran Turismo 6’ (‘GT6’). The two-seat convertible is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbocharged TSI® engine that produces 503 horsepower and a mighty 413 pound-feet of torque between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm; from just 2,000 revs, 369 lb-ft of that torque is available. The power of the TSI engine is transferred to the 20-inch wheel-and-tire combination via a seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission and a 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system. The lightweight, 3133-pound sportscar sprints from 0 to 60 mph in an estimated 3.5 seconds and goes onto a top track speed of 192 mph.
