The 2007 VW Golf GTI W12 650 Concept is a sports car, celebrating the icon of the Golf GTI in the in the Austrian Land at the Worthersee, showing the enormous potential of Golf.
Its impressive output is delivered by the 6.0-liter Biturbo engine, which is to be found directly behind the driver and the front seat passenger. The C-columns were re-designed in such a way that they lead air to the engine. The Golf GTI W12-650 covers the 0-100 km/h sprint in only 3.7 seconds through its six-speed automatic transmission which also produces 750 Nm of torque. The sports car leaves behind all of the world's greatest cars with its top speed of 325 km/h. A specially engineered tyre had to be made beacuse of the gigantic wheel dimensions, which are made from a light alloy, while automotive designers adapted the chassis components directly from supersports cars. Despite the technical changes, parts from the classical GTI were kept, such as the doors, the headlights, the tail lamps as well as the front hood. The roof was made from carbon fibre and it is part of an immmense diffuser, which delivers enough drift to the rear axle.
The roots of the GTI idea were that one should leave conventions behind and let his or her paasion awake, and the Golf GTI W12-650 beautifully embodies the motto.
