The VW Sport Coupe Concept is Volkswagen's highly anticipated and spectacular entry in the world of sporty coupes as well as plug-in hybrids. Volkswagen has decided to go hard rather than go home with this vehicle, which helps it crack two market segments simultaneously. The car was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The VW Sport Coupe Concept has a high-performance drive system that revolves around a turbocharged 3.0-liter TSI V6 direct-injection engine that produces 295 horsepower and a maximum torque of 369 pounds-feet. A 54-horsepower front motor is incorporated into the 6-sped dual-clutch automatic transmission, while the rear motor offers 114 horsepower. This means the vehicle's total power is 374 horsepower.

Bear in mind this vehicle is still just a concept, however with specs like these it would certainly be worth bringing this to market.
