Volkswagen has announced a new version of their Golf GTI, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport, which is launching to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Golf GTI.
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport has a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of just 5.9 seconds for the DSG model and 6 seconds for the manual model.
Not only has Volkswagen given the anniversary model’s engine more power, it has also extensively revised the design, equipment and aerodynamic fine-tuning of the anniversary model. Due to the high power output and significantly improved downforce, the dynamic performance of the Golf GTI Clubsport propels it into the domain of top-class motorsport. This results in groundbreaking handling properties at high speeds and breathtaking cornering speeds.
The Golf GTI Clubsport is painted in “Oryx White” (other colours available); as a contrast, the roof area comes in black. The Volkswagen exterior designers created a completely new front bumper, new side sills, a new rear diffuser, a new multi-part roof spoiler and exclusive forged alloy wheels for the anniversary model. These features immediately make the anniversary model stand out from the familiar GTI models.
It features a 2.0 litre engine that has 261 horsepower and it also features a boost function which can increase the engine power to 284 horsepower.
