Volkswagen Vision Gran Turismo Concept

Not so long ago we were able to see the Volkswagen Vision Gran Turismo Concept that has been presented and immediately we liked the looks of it. What is even more fascinating is the fact that this concept is based and quite similar to the Scirocco production version vehicle.

This is yet another car in the lineup of models that are offered as concepts for this game and it is pretty hard not to like the offer. If we need to choose the best looking from those that we have already saw this would certainly be one of the top picks. As a result of cooperation Volkswagen delivered this model and since it looks great it would be great to see it delivered as a production version. We are sure that production model would be at least slightly different but we do hope to see it offered and similar to the source concept we have here.

All the ingredients we are usually getting from VW is also offered here but everything is emphasized and with aerodynamics and performances in mind. To offer best possible features it has sportier package than anything we were able to see from Volkswagen in the past. Huge spoiler in combination with fantastic wheels, low windshield, redesigned headlights and swooping front end are just a few characteristics of this concept.

We can agree about the great looks but we do know that a complete car needs to have a lot of power to back this up. Under the hood of the Volkswagen Vision Gran Turismo Concept we are getting 3.0 liter V6 engine that pumps out impressive 503 hp and 491 pound feet of torque thanks to its twin turbo technology and direct fuel injection. Power is transferred through a seven speed dual clutch automatic and in this setup it will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds while the top speed will be about 192 mph.

From the representatives of VW, at the presentation of this model, we could hear that the base for it was Golf GTI but somehow it really looks more like and Scirocco. This is not so important since we really like what we get. Color is perfectly matched and called Tornado Red or Gran Turismo Red, this way it emphasizes its power and performances.

Since this is performance oriented model and we can see this in every segment of the vehicle same situation is in interior also. Everything is designed around driver with Alcantra racing seats, red accents and carbon fiber inserts everywhere. Paddle shifters are used to control transmission while the wheel comes with four spoke design for optimum grip.

Price Of Volkswagen Vision Gran Turismo Concept

If a vehicle based on the Volkswagen Vision Gran Turismo Concept ever comes to the market we are sure that there will be a decent number of those drivers that would but one of these models. Estimated price would be about $50,000 at least that is what we could hear but it could go a lot higher since we would be getting one vehicle that brings performances in the supercar territory.
