Under the hood is a 3.0 liter V6 Biturbo engine that delivers up to 496 horsepower. The 2014 GTI Roadster Concept is capable of going 0 – 62mph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 192 mph.
The car is fitted with a 7 speed DSG gearbox and four motion all-wheel drive mechanism. With 413 lbs ft of torque, this car is arguably one of the most powerful machines.
The body is aerodynamically optimized by a number of modifications. At the rear is the large wing which creates a strong downforce. This transfers extreme engine power to the road in a controlled way through an all wheel drive system.
The design features the honeycomb grille and headlamps with aggressive carbon fiber blades. Another visible feature is the floating C pillars that double up as a roll-over protection bar.
Additionally the car features over-sized 20 inch alloy wheels wrapped in a glide of low-profile rubber and carbon sills turning it into a pure fantasy. Inside the 20 inch alloys are ceramic brakes that raise the flying VW.
Inside, passengers are cocooned in a twin carbon fiber monocoque. They are able to sit low in hip-hugging racing seats. A fire extinguisher has been fitted to give it a complete race car feel.
The carbon fiber and the Alcantara trim design enhance the interior of the car. The design elements of the 2014 GTI Roadster Concept are portrayed as vibrant, dynamic and emotional as possible. The seats and the steering wheel are all swathed in faux suede.
