Whether it is design, street credibility or the promise of a good drive the VW GTI models continue to bite at my natural Pony car tendencies. Volkswagen seems to be constantly testing the possibilities with their GTI variants. With models like the VR6, R32, R36 and the Golf W12-650 concept, finding another GTI concept to wettin’ the appetite is further evidence that (as David Allen put it here) VW truly is doing some “genetics engineering” in their design department.
This next VW concept is being called the R GTI and it truly is a street racing machine straight out of the labratory (not that we encourage street racing… noo…). Take a look at the video below and see what we mean.
With the rollercoaster design of the the backseats to the widened snout and racing graphics, the R GTI looks to be a thrill-ride from the word go.
