VW Golf Design Vision GTI concept: more pictures

More pictures and details of the mad VR6-engined VW Golf Design Vision GTI concept

More pictures and details of VW’s madcap new Golf concept have emerged during its Worthersee show unveiling. Clearly taking inspiration from the W12-engined Golf GTI of old, it powers all four wheels with a 3-litre VR6 engine, which could appear – in detuned form – in future Volkswagen models.

Despite its wild body and supercar-troubling 496bhp/413lb ft powertrain, the Design Vision GTI is still based around the MQB chassis architecture that underpins the mk7 Golf as well as many other VW group small cars. All four wheels are powered by a DSG twin-clutch gearbox.

The GTI will top 190mph – 38mph more than the regular, 2-litre car – and hits 62mph in 3.9sec, 2.6sec quicker than the mk7 hot hatch.
