German automaker Volkswagen has unveiled the Gol GT Concept, which is a sportier version of its Gol hatchback. The vehicle is developed by VW Brazil and the company said that this model will strengthen the emotional relationship customers share with the brand's sportier models.
The car looks like a proper Volkswagen GT model and it features aero mods as well as a unique ‘Gray Volcano' metallic colour, highlighted by the ‘Lava Red' design elements.
The aero mods on the car include a new bumper with a front lip spoiler. Other features are full-LED headlamps, GTI-inspired Lava red lines on the grille, 18-inch ‘Serron' diamond wheels, twin exhaust pipes, darkened taillights and a roof spoiler.
Carlos Pavone, VW design executive said, "The concept goes to the essence, at the beginning of the GT legend, with a current and modern language that translates all the sportiness of the Volkswagen brand.
"The GT Concept captures the look of a child for a sporty model. It is a gift to the fans of the brand and this new generation of automobile enthusiasts."
When it comes to interiors, the GT Concept features shell-type seats, a flat-bottom sports steering wheels, restyled door panels, unique air vents and door handles, aluminium pedals and a lot of GT logos.
