    Volkswagen is gearing up to join thousands of automotive fans at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed on 26-29 June. The Festival, dubbed the ‘largest motoring garden party in the world’ is a unique weekend that brings together cars, stars and motor sport ‘royalty’ to create a celebration of all things automotive. It is held in the grounds of Goodwood House, Sussex, and includes a famous hillclimb event up the drive of the house.
    This year, Volkswagen UK’s stand will provide a great opportunity for fans to engage with the brand, from the latest innovations to some exciting performance models, as well as some fantastic merchandise.
    One of the biggest attractions on the stand in expected to be the radical GTI Roadster concept, which is making its UK debut, fresh from its appearance at the annual gathering of GTI fans on the shores of Woerthersee in Austria last month. Originally created as a virtual car, to feature in the Sony PlayStation® 3 classic Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), and now created as a real car, the two-seat GTI Roadster uses a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo TSI engine that produces 503 PS, and 560 Nm. With a seven-speed DSG gearbox and 4MOTION four-wheel drive, it hits 62 mph from rest in just 3.6 seconds, and goes on to 190 mph.
