Inspired by 7th generation GTI model- Volkswagen’s engineers and designers has developed a special race car concept – the “Design Vision GTI”, for the Wörthersee festival which starts from 8th to 11th May in Reifnitz city of Austria. The C-pillars and sills outward like a independent body elements, providing space for essentially broder front and rear tracks, with distinctively built 20-inch wheels[235 tires in the front and 275s at the rear]. The concept race car – “Design Vision GTI” can sprint to a top speed of 186 miles/hour. Engine Specs : Although the new GTI has plenty of power in standard form, with up to 230 hp available on the Performance model, the “Design Vision GTI” ups the ante with 503 hp, developed at 6500 rpm. Just like the engine in the regular GTI, the concept car has a turbocharged and direct – injection TSI® engine — in this case, a 3.0-liter V6 instead of a 2.0-liter four cylinder, using twin turbochargers. Two three-way catalytic converters are arranged close to the engine to optimize emissions behavior. The V6 TSI develops 369 pound-feet of torque from as low as 2000 rpm, with a maximum figure of 413 lb-ft at 4000 rpm. All this power and torque is distributed to the wheels via a DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system. With this powertrain and a specially tuned chassis, the “Design Vision GTI” eats any type of racetrack. On a dragstrip, it will reach 62 mph from a standstill in an impressive 3.9 seconds. In order to slow this super-powerful GTI, Volkswagen fitted it with large carbon-ceramic brake discs, sized 15.0 inches up front and 14.0 inches at the back. The ceramic brake discs and red-painted brake calipers peek through the spokes of the 20-inch alloy wheels, which are 8.5J wide at the front and 9.5J at the back.
