This Is The Best VW You Will Drive This Year

VW has just followed in the footsteps of both Toyota and BMW, unveiling the GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo within the digital confines of Gran Turismo 6. Starting next month you can drive it, which automatically makes this the best VW you'll drive this year.

So what makes it so special? Well, for starters, it's a lightweight, all wheel drive, 503 hp monster.

It's also aerodynamically sleek. Check out the rake on that windshield.

If the front looks a little, well, squished to you, you're exactly right. It's an homage to a concept VW created last year.

Inside, it's nothing but carbon fiber, a formula-style steering wheel, and a general vibe that's more on par with a fighter jet than a street car.

But none of that'll matter when you're flogging this thing on the best courses on earth.

See it in action right here.
