This is VW's Amazing-Looking, Totally Nuts New 503HP GTI Concept

By Sam Gibbs on at

This thing has to get made. Looking like something out of Tron spliced with a BMW 1 series, this beast is the latest 'just because we can' concept out of VW. It's insane twin-turbocharged 3L V6 pumps out a healthy 503HP to propel this thing to 60mph in just 3.9 seconds, and onto a blistering 186mph top speed.

Of course, this is just a concept, but a heck of a concept it is. The Bugatti Veyron started as a batshit-mental concept too, but VW made that. Given there's no way in hell you'd be able to get that much power down to the tarmac through a front-wheel drive car, VW's decided all-wheel drive and a DSG gearbox is required.

Let's hope something out of this gorgeous machine makes it into a Golf R32 at some point down the line. [Jalopnik]
