Volkswagen has just unveiled their new concept car, the Golf GTI W12 650, at the Wörthersee car show in Austria.  With a top speed of 201 mph, this futuristic looker is packing 650 horsepower – and looks amazing too!

Autoblog has this to say about some of the car’s finer detailing:

Lower and wider than a stock GTI, the body retains the production car’s doors, hood and lights, but otherwise it’s all new. A number of intakes and a redesigned C-pillar help feed air to the 12-cylinder behemoth supplying the go-power. To keep the car planted to the tarmac, VW didn’t want to use a massive spoiler to generate downforce. As such, the car’s carbon-fiber roof acts as a giant diffuser that funnels air under the small spoiler at its trailing edge. In summary, the whole thing is a big exercise in the awesome.
