VW is the latest firm to create a virtual supercar just for Gran Turismo racers. The car is called the GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo and it is based on the Golf GTI. Power for the virtual car comes from a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine making 503hp and 491 lb-ft of torque.

 

The car also has a chopped off roof to make it a roadster and a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. The car also uses all-wheel drive, packs giant brakes, and wide tires for racetrack work in the game. A concept version of the car may actually be built and seen in the real-world according to VW.
