Volkswagen Design Vision GTI Packs Insane 500HP

Every year at the Worthersee Festival in Austria, Volkswagen- along with any number of brands under the corporate umbrella- bring forth a set of concepts which stand out from the usual list of suspects. Like a 500-hp GTI. Yup, that's definitely something you don't see everyday. With a whole 500 ponies, this "Super GTI" isn't fitted with the standard four-banger found in the Mk7, but rather a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 which manages 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds a reaches a top speed of 186 mph...IN A GOLF.

And to compensate all this newfound power, VW fitted the GTI with a new set of angles and lines making it wider, shorter and meaner. We doubt we'll ever see this thing anywhere near the production line, but then again, you never know what those sneaky Germans might have hiding up their sleeves.
