Volkswagen GTI Roadster Concept Car

"Automakers are constantly unveiling new concept cars to showcase their brand image and demonstrate where the company is going. But after the concept debuts, and maybe makes the rounds of some local shows, that's pretty much the last we see of it. But what if an automaker could design a concept that it not only showcases at an auto show, but could also let today's video-game generation drive them?

That's the idea behind the Vision Gran Turismo series. Automakers design their concept car, show it off to the public, and then it becomes available to play in Gran Turismo 6, one of the most advanced and popular driving games out there. Merced and BMW have done it. Mitsubishi and Nissan have shown off their idea. Volkswagen revealed–the GTI Roadster Vision 
Gran Turismo – at the Wörthersee gathering in Austria, and now its design is ready for the virtual reality of GT6.

The VW GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo, we'll remind you, shares little with the GTI hot hatch it's supposed to evoke. It's an open-top roadster with butterfly doors, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with over 500 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque driving all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. In other words, it's more like an original Golf R32, on steroids, with no roof and a supercar complex.

Gamers will be able to purchase the VW Roadster from the Vision GT in the GT6 Garage, or for a limited time, win it by completing a lap in the new Seasonal Event."
