The Volkswagen GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo is latest in a series of online sports cars designed to celebrate Gran Turismo’s 15th anniversary on the PlayStation gaming platform.
Under the hood lies a turbocharged iteration of Volkswagen’s narrow-angle VR6 engine. For the GTI Supersport, this motor is said to develop 375kW of power and 665Nm of torque. These are same numbers claimed by the 3.0-litre twin-turbo VR6 engine that reportedly powered last year’s GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo.
The Supersport channels all that sound and fury to the virtual terra firma via an all-wheel drive system. This pumped-up Golf GTI concept is claimed to be good for a 0-100km/h time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed in excess of 300km/h.
The GTI Supersport rides on a 20-inch alloy wheels, and in many ways look likes a wilder version of 2013’s Golf GTI Design Vision concept.
Visually, the Supersport seems to be wider, and features a lower and more expansive carbonfibre front splitter that curls up at the sides to incorporate LED driving lights. At the rear there’s a massive wing surrounding the tailgate.
It’s unknown whether the the Volkswagen GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo will gain a real-life recreation. Some cars that were created for Vision Gran Turismo series have remained strictly denizens of the online world.
The GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo is available now via the latest update to Gran Turismo 6 on PlayStation 3.
