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 and toy with themselves?
Last week, we brought you sketches of the Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo – a slick, low-cut, two-seat, open-top take on the stalwart GTI, designed specifically for Gran Turismo 6. Now, we have the official images as the car makes its debut at the annual Wörthersee festival, and man, does this thing look awesome.
It's official, Volkswagen will show its very own Vision Gran Turismo concept car at the 2014 Wörthersee festival on May 28. While we knew VW's Gran Turismo 6 exclusive would be based on the lovable GTI, what we didn't know was that it'd be a GTI Roadster.
