VW have announced the launch of a new version of their GTI, the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Concept.
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Concept is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine that produces 290 horsepower and 271 pound feet of torque. It comes with a limited top speed of 155 miles per hour which can be increased to 164 mph.
Numerous individual features add to the Golf GTI TCR’s sporty character. The new top Golf GTI model has 18-inch “Belvedere” forged aluminum-alloy wheels as standard, with newly designed 19-inch alloys as an option. Lurking behind the large aluminum-alloy wheels are perforated brake discs together with special calipers and pads that are designed to slow the production vehicle just as effortlessly as the race car.
Externally, the most powerful GTI yet has a new front bumper that feeds air into the vehicle’s two additional radiators and also features a sharply contoured front splitter. A new side skirt extension is continued through the rear of the car, joining the distinctively designed diffuser and the integrated exhaust tailpipes. TCR lettering above the side skirts is also featured, along with optional GTI-style honeycomb trim for the side of the vehicle.
