Drive The Volkswagen GTI Roadster Concept

Like it? Well, you can “virtually” drive it at Goodwood this year…

Volkswagen is gearing up to join thousands of automotive fans at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed on 26-29 June 2014.

The festival, dubbed the largest motoring garden party in the world is a unique weekend that brings together cars, stars and motor sport royalty to create a celebration of all things automotive.

It is held in the grounds of Goodwood House, Sussex, and includes a famous hillclimb event up the drive of the house.

One of the biggest attractions on the stand in expected to be the radical GTI Roadster concept, which is making its UK debut, fresh from its appearance at the annual gathering of GTI fans on the shores of Woerthersee in Austria last month. Previously only a digital car in Gran Turismo 6, this amazing concept is now a real car. The two-seat GTI Roadster uses a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo TSI engine that produces 503 PS, and 560 Nm. With a seven-speed DSG gearbox and 4MOTION four-wheel drive, it hits 62 mph from rest in just 3.6 seconds, and goes on to 190 mph.
