Fans to test Volkswagen Golf GTI through online game

Armchair fans of the upcoming Volkswagen Golf GTI will be able to test the vehicle through a new online game.

Some 60 modellers have been hard at work creating a 30ft by 25ft track for budding gamers to race the car against the clock.

The track also features over 200 scale buildings to bring some added realism to the game.

Meanwhile, gamers that try to push the Golf too hard will suffer the same consequences as on the road in the form of a crash, with the quickest times gaining a place on an online leaderboard.

The game is called the ‘GTI Project’, with players taking control of a 1:43 scale Volkswagen Golf and helping it negate some challenging hairpins and narrow bridges that form certain parts of the track.

According to Volkswagen, the new Golf GTI, which launches in the UK on May 22nd, has "dynamic good looks" and a "superb cabin", which help it to thrill motorists with every drive.

Furthermore, the vehicle has a top speed of 149 miles per hour, alongside being able to accelerate from still to 62 miles per hour in 6.9 seconds.
