This new Volkswagen has a three-litre engine boasting 500bhp, can do 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds and costs a jaw-dropping £3.4 million. The Volkswagen Golf Design Vision GTI is a one-of-a-kind superhatch, which has more than double the power of a standard Golf GTI. With a top speed of 186mph, it is on a par with some of the world’s fastest supercars.
While it bears some resemblance to a Golf GTI, the only thing it shares in common with the big-selling German car is its windscreen.
It is slightly shorter, lower and wider than a standard GTI and has a set of huge 20-inch alloy wheels and 15-inch brakes to supply the four-wheel drive car with strong stopping power.
The Golf is easily the most important car not just in its class but also for the Volkswagen brand in general. It’s the model model most people aspire to own, the best blend of practicality and compact dimensions, but also a technological showcase in its 7th incarnation.
Don’t believe us? Just look at the sales figures! As of today, Volkswagen has produced 30 million Golfs across seven generations and almost 40 years of history. The landmark car rolled off the assembly line today in Wolfsburg.
