Concept Volkswagen Golf GTE SportPosted by: Lydia Siu onNovember 23rd, 2015
Volkswagen continues to push the envelope with their compact car designs and introduces the concept Golf GTE Sport. Setup as a two seater, the angular and sporty coupe pushes the design elements of the Golf and pulls in design queues from the Scirocco.
Power is delivered by a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder gasoline engine and electric motors on the front and rear axle with an estimated total output of 395hp and 494 ft/lbs of torque. Volkswagen claims a 4 second sprint to 60 mph, a top speed of 174 mph, and the ability to deliver 118mpg when driven on the European test cycle.
Weight of the vehicle will be kept to a minimum with construction of the body panels being formed from carbon fiber. Combining light weight and packing ample power, Volkswagen aims to “blur the lines” between motorsports vehicles and road cars.
