The Sport Coupe Concept GTE Concept combines exclusive sports car design with four-door body and large boot lid
Volkswagen is presenting the Sport Coupé Concept GTE in a world premiere at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show and is presenting this avant-garde model as the champion of a new, progressive Volkswagen design language.
‘Evolution and revolution come together in the Sport Coupé Concept GTE. This concept is based on Volkswagen design DNA, which has been visibly sharpened even more. It shows how fascinating the highest-volume brand of our Group is shaping the immediate future,’ says Walter de Silva, Head of Design of Volkswagen AG.
Dr Heinz-Jakob Neußer, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Development, explains: ‘This concept car is a breathtakingly dynamic coupé unlike any other to appear in this class. In the design of the Sport Coupé Concept GTE – that is, in the style of an exclusive sports car enriched by the added functionality of a large boot lid and the interior space of a four-seater – we see an impressive alternative to the classic saloons of the B and C segments.’
Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design of the Volkswagen Brand, adds this: ‘The Sport Coupé Concept GTE is another milestone of expressive design. Unmistakably reinvented, from the first to the last stroke. A stylistic compass. In this concept car, Volkswagen is not only presenting the new design of a new model, but also initial glimpses of a new design era.’
