The Volkswagen C Coupe GTE concept has been revealed at the Shanghai motor show.
At slightly more than five metres long, the concept is 1930mm wide and has a 3001mm wheelbase. Wide tracks — 1634mm front and 1624mm rear — are complemented by 22in wheels.
The exterior is the most striking expression yet of VW’s developing design language, which is dominated by what the firm refers to as “horizontal lines and sharp, precise edges”.
VW also highlights what it calls the “prestige clearance” — the distance between the leading front door shutline and the centre of the front axle. According to VW, the “longer this measurement, the longer the bonnet can be without increasing the front overhang”.
