Get a rare look at the VW Golf GTI Roadster concept in the walkaround video

Just looking at the design, some say it’s the hottest golf concept ever made.

The Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo, which was first introduced in the video game Gran Turismo 6, made a real appearance at the GTI Wörthersee Show in Austria in 2014. It stole the show back then with its futuristic flat body and two-seat convertible design.

The GTI Roadster is one of the coolest Golf concepts ever built, which makes us wish a production version had made it to the production line. Outside of video gaming, this concept would rarely be seen in public. Happily, car feeling got the chance to capture one for this rare walkaround video.

The Golf GTI Roadster Concept has a very angular design that can pass as a futuristic car despite its introduction almost a decade ago. The car is extremely low at just 40 inches (1 meter) tall and has a width accentuated by the small lamps and carbon fiber front spoiler. The vehicle is 4.16 m long and fitted with a set of 20-inch open-spoke wheels.

The design of the car is very dramatic – the GTI badge is on the front of the car and is illuminated by a special lighting feature on the side mirrors. The massive rear wing could offer protection from rain. The diffuser in the lower part of the rear apron is accentuated by LED lighting.

The butterfly doors open at the push of a button and reveal a fascinating interior. The cabin is upholstered in Alcantara and Dinamica and the steering wheel is similar to those found in Formula 1 racing cars. The concept also comes with racing seat belts.

A wow factor that previously distinguished the GTI Roadster was its engine. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter V6 that produces up to 503 hp. The concept vehicle accelerates from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 3.6 seconds. The car features all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with a claimed top speed of more than 300 km/h.
