Poor Volkswagen…all those efforts to tease bits and pieces of the Golf GTI Vision Gran Turismo Concept on its social media sites and keep its overall look concealed, only for one of their selected magazine partners to leak their photos online – not that we’re complaining, of course, of course…
One of the many manufacturer concept cars designed for the Gran Turismo gaming series (other studies include the BMW Vision GT6, Toyota FT-1, Honda Vision GT6 and Lexus Vision GT6), VW’s model is a barchetta-style racer that doesn’t really have a lot in common with the Golf GTI other than some subtle references like the honeycomb grille and red pin stripes.
We don’t have any information on the car yet, but the seating layout, stubby tail and long nose suggest that it may have been designed as a front-engine model. We’ll know for sure when VW shares the story.
