The VW Golf GTI was the original hot hatchback and in 2007 this one-off concept car provided a tantalising glimpse of fast Golfs of the future.
Under its bonnet is a 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine with 478kW. It gives the Golf W12-650 an amazing top speed in excess of 320km/h, which is almost as much of an eye-opener as the incredible bodywork. The super-low ride height suggests the car was designed for a future without speed humps. Just imagine that!
