The Volkswagen Group had one final trick up its sleeve to unveil at the Geneva Motor Show, a daring concept car from ItalDesign Giugiaro called the Parcour. We're thinking this one is going to be controversial, but that's fine by us – a little conceptual shake-up never hurt anybody.
From what we can tell, the Parcour is a rough-road-ready take on the Lamborghini Gallardo, with a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V10 engine sending 550 horsepower to all four wheels. The version shown at VW's pre-show event is a hardtop coupe, but the design house has also created a roadster that you can see in the gallery below.
According to ItalDesign Giugiaro, the Parcour weighs in at around 3,400 pounds is capable of a 0 to 62 run of 3.6 seconds and it boasts a top speed of around 200 miles per hour. Ride height is adjustable from the cabin, ranging from 8.2 inches all the way up to 13 inches. A kind of terrain dial can be used inside with settings for Comfort, Off-Road, Ice and Track modes.
