Volkswagen Design Vision GTI concept debuts at Wörthersee

Volkswagen ha unveiled the Design Vision GTI concept at Wörthersee 2013, which is based on the new seventh-generation Golf GTI, featuring a new front end with LED headlights, C-pillars and side sills which have been extended out, side blades, new rear bumper and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Compared to the standard Golf GTI it is 71mm wider, 57mm lower and measures 15mm less in length.

Interior boasts a carbon fibre dashboard trimmed in alcantara upholstery, a digital instrument cluster, a sport steering wheel and Porsche Cup-inspired door handles.

The rear seat is replaced by an X-shaped cross member that increases stiffness and also houses two helmets.
