VW Virtus RS Widebody Concept
First of all, the blood-red color scheme chosen for the first iteration is very attractive and distinguishes the sportiness of the sedan. The front has large air vents combined with a massive radiator grille to give a uniform aerodynamic look, the matte grille and silver skating rink add adventure features, and the slight headlight processing also complements the racing features. Alloy wheels are painted black with red brake calipers. When looking at the side profile, the wide body is visible once. The black side column with sharp folds and chrome garnish adds charm to it all.
The rear of the sedan looks even more promising. The spoiler of the cargo lid doubles the tail section, the shark blade antenna introduces a modern element, the extended rear wing covers the wheel arches well, and the rear is dominated by a heavy diffuser with four suction units with chrome tips. It is impossible not to appreciate the ingenuity of the rear. In general, this digital modified Virtus is similar to the performance sedan of German carmakers.
