For this event, Volkswagen has prepared an unprecedented version of Golf: demo car GTI W12-650. This sporty model is dedicated to all the friends GTI, gathering in W?rthersee – fans who gave GTI legend status. This concept car is designed specifically for them.
It is the most powerful, fast and wide Golf in the history of the model. GTI W12-650 looks as if it had just come down from racing trails. Golf This could be a leader in the 24-hour race at Le Mans. All its qualities – its name: W12 – 12 cylinders, 650 liters. p. (477 kW at 6000 rev / min). Model car – no more and no less. It demonstrates the endless possibilities that may have a similar car.
3.7 seconds, 325 km / h to 750 Nm
Its 6-liter twin-turbo engine is longitudinally; it is installed behind the driver seat and front passenger. So GTI is a classic sports car with a mid-engined. Six-speed automatic transfers a maximum torque of 750 Nm at the rear axle. This moment makes GTI reach 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds. Twin-turbo engine is ideal for drivers who are tight on the gas even at a speed of 300 km / h. The speedometer needle does not stop at around 325 km / h. Golf GTI W12-650 is superior to virtually all cars of this segment.
Width – 1.88 m, width of the profile of the front tires – 235, rear – 295.
With a width of 1.88 m body (in the production of 1.76 m) and a height of 1.42 m (1.50 m in production) engineers and designers have managed to combine the design with avtostroitelnymi technologies go unnoticed buyers any other model. Each component is created individually. For example, the chassis components of this demonstration vehicle were taken directly from the sports car. Mounted on the front axle tire section width of 235 mm diameter of 19 inches in the rear – the tire width 295 mm. Of course, the car is equipped with alloy wheels. Because of the sheer size of the tire wheels (polished, Detroit GTI) facing recess to the wheel hub and are made to order. Circumference of fixing holes is much deeper than the center plane of the rim.
Below 70 mm, 160 mm wider
The car was lower by 70 mm by reducing the height of the suspension, and the huge wheel arches resemble the automotive “coupe” in the shoulder section. Klaus Bischoff, Director of Volkswagen Design: «In the back of the demo car is wider by 80 mm on each side. However, the body GTI allowed to do so without problems. The shoulder section of the body was already strong enough to production model. We were able to highlight it even more clearly, as the sports model. ”
The chief designer continues: “Our goal is clearly defined – despite some significant changes, it is obvious that GTI was to remain a classic GTI. Golf design is easily recognizable and unique. If you change it, destroyed the character and image of the car. This can not be allowed in any case. “That is why it was borrowed from Golf maximum number of items – lights, doors and so on. D. Changed a place of attachment of the expansion of the body side at the bottom.
Rear rack as ducts for engine cooling
“One of the greatest challenges – says Klaus Bischoff, – was to ensure sufficient air supply to the 6-liter engine sredneraspolozhennym without disturbing side contour GTI. In addition, at such a fast car, you must create enough downforce in the rear axle. We do not want to install a car large rear spoiler for aesthetic reasons. ”
In both cases, helped ingenious solution. “The strongest Golf design element is the rear rack – explains Klaus Bischoff. – But it is required to place ducts for cooling the engine. Therefore, the rear pillars have been redesigned in a short time and have received additional feature air into the engine compartment. In this case, we simply deepened into the body of the rear window. This created two air between the panes and rear racks. According to him supplied with air for cooling the engine. In addition, cooling air is supplied through the front air giant radiators and through side channels of the underbody. “At first glance, the rear part of the car does not differ from batch GTI. But in fact, all of its parts substantially reworked.
Carbon fiber roof as a diffuser
The innovative design of the body is not allowed to violate the contours of the body GTI W12-650 wing installation on the roof. Klaus Bischoff: “GTI Rear wing contained within the body. The roof is part of an enormous diffuser provides sufficient downforce in the rear axle.
It is made of carbon fiber and fiber directs air above and below the rear spoiler that improves traction, as on racing cars. ”
Design bumpers show car – a powerful and at the same time harmonious. The characteristic elements and rear and front bumper GTI W12-650 are large inlet and outlet ducts. On each side of the rear outlet are two chromed twin tailpipes. In front of the car look attracts direct grille between the headlights in a red frame, reminiscent of the first modification of the GTI.
Salon, like a race car
Each driver of the modern GTI will feel at home immediately after landing in the salon. Sport bucket seat new design upholstered in leather Alcantara. Three round scale in the center of the dashboard is also reminiscent of the original GTI. In addition, from a race car borrowed transparent hinged cap toggle functions such as disabling the electronic system of exchange rate stability. To avoid accidentally switching the toggle switch, you must first discard cap index finger, and then switch the toggle switch. Another similarity – integrated fire extinguisher in place of the glove box. To reduce the weight of interior doors is almost completely absent; established only shields, and they deliberately open door review of working arrangements.
