Volkswagen, the inventor of the GTI, has launched the latest descendant of the original hot hatch on the digital race circuit.
Gran Turismo 6 fans can now download the VW GTI Supersport, a 370kW digital supercar. A 635Nm VR6 TSI, seven-speed double-clutch transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive take the virtual Veedub from 0-100km in 3.6 seconds and on to more than 300km/h.
The basic shape is still a two-box hatch, but it’s been lowered, widened and body-kitted for a radical stance, with lots of carbon-fibre components to lower the centre of gravity and raise its power-to-weight ratio to hair-raising 295kW per ton.
Wide body flares provide homes for the special 20-inch alloys and ventilation ducts for the rear brakes, while a big roof-edge spoiler and rear diffuser deliver the downforce for fast lap-times.
Download it to your Playstation in silver, red, blue or white – and don’t be surprised if you see something very similar ‘in the metal’ at the Worthersee GTI-Treffen gathering in May 2015.
