Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI "Unreal Ultra" Is the Best Widebody Hot Hatch Rendering

We often say that the mark of a good car is how many weird tuning projects you can find. In that regard, the Mk7 Golf was one of the best hot hatches to wear the GTI badge, but we've never seen anything quite like this. It's like a SEMA project backed by aliens.

We want to make excuses here, to say that the limitations of the platform are what stopped people from putting this much muscle on the Rabbit. But it is possible; look at rallycross examples or any hardcore racing version of the Golf 7 GTI, for that matter.

Really, the GTI community was too preoccupied with what wheels to buy and didn't have time for such conversions. We're currently witnessing the dusk of the Mk7. You can still find it on VW USA's website, though it's going to be replaced by the all-new model in a few months. So we decided to celebrate the success of another mild-mannered hot hatch with the best widebody rendering we've ever seen.

Artist Hycade burst onto the scene just a few months ago, but his work is top-notch. After stumbling upon the Star Wars-themed RS6 the other day, we checked out his luscious Mk7 conversion and were equally impressed.

There's a certain tuning design language, if such a thing exists, that connects all his renders. It's simple, revolving around the notion of adding horizontal grilles next to the headlights and taillights, bringing your attention to the widebody modifications.

The rest of the aero also has a specific look. The front intakes are made to look extra-deep with the help of extended chin elements, while the rear wings usually float off the body and have a complicated design. You can draw parallels with race cars or even the R400 concept here. But it's pretty clear this widebody transformation is twice as crazy as a Civic Type R.
