Auto Talk: Volkswagen cooking up lightweight Carbon GTI

IFWT_VWGTI

Autocar reports Volkswagen may be working on a lightweight version of the GTI as a tribute to the model’s bare-bones ancestry. Dubbed “Carbon GTI,” the model is said to make use of a range of new manufacturing techniques to incorporate a heap of carbon fiber and aluminum wherever possible. Pieces like the bulkhead, windshield frame and floor panels are all expected to be hammered from lightweight alloy while the hood and roof will be stitched from the composite. All told, the changes should shave around 440 pounds from the chassis, resulting in a curb weight in the neighborhood of 2,480 pounds.
