A super concept from VW

Meet the brand-spanking-new VW GTI Supersport Vision concept. Beneath that curved and flowing bonnet is a 3.0L 503hp VR6 turbocharged engine linked to a seven-speed dual clutch DSG gearbox that delivers power to all four wheels. Coupled with 665Nm of torque, the Supersport catapults from 0-100km/h in just 3.6 seconds, on a par with the Enzo Ferrari, with a top speed of over 300kph.

Meanwhile, a power-to-weight ration of just 2.5kg per horsepower means a likely kerb weight of around 1,257kg, while a rear spoiler and diffuser means the Supersport will hug the tarmac tightly.

So far, so good. The only downside, in fact, is that is doesn’t actually exist in the real world. Unfortunately, the GTI Supersport was created for the Gran Turismo 6 video game and the only track it’ll be hurtling around is one in the virtual world.

There’s no word yet from Volkswagen as to whether we’ll see a full-sized version in this reality. Still, we can always hope.
