Volkswagen has revealed a high-performance concept based on the ID.7 model. While it’s still in the concept phase, a production version, likely to bear the GTX designation, is on the horizon. The brand’s design team has transformed the ID.7 into a sporty model with aggressive new bumpers, side skirts, and a substantial spoiler mounted on the trunk lid.
Unfortunately, beyond the striking exterior, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the same powertrain as the concept, which generates 558 horsepower. Volkswagen is more likely to stick to their established approach with other ID. models, with power output reaching around 400 horsepower. However, we’ll have to wait and see.
The spoiler, along with the front splitter and rear diffuser, is crafted from carbon fiber. Black fender flares cover a set of forged 20-inch wheels, which, combined with a 60mm suspension drop, contribute to the new stance. Engineers have increased the front suspension’s camber angle by 80mm and wrapped the wheels in 265-millimeter Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires for the track, maximizing the additional power of the ID.X.
The vehicle’s power increases momentarily, while the dynamics control system manages torque. The driver may operate the rear axle differential lock in the ID.X Performance through this system as well, thanks to the large 17-inch touchscreen situated in the dashboard’s centre.
A group of engineers worked on the model’s development to make the most out of it by fusing a sedan’s graceful appearance with a dynamic performance. VW is anticipated to unveil the production-ready ID.7 GTX shortly, which will come with a 4×4 drivetrain and two electric motors.
