To celebrate the German brand has confirmed that it will introduce a new sporty, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S.

The new model will become the Golf GTI faster in their 40-year history. To achieve this retocará its mechanics 2.0 TSI four-cylinder, which in the model series delivered 265 HP. For this occasion is expected to reach 310 HP, overcoming the barrier of the 300 HP that the Golf R.
This GTI that exceeds the R will arrive as a limited edition 5,000 and will go on sale this fall.

Now that there is no speed limits, the goal is to bring a specific configuration to beat the record for production vehicles with front wheel drive.
To do this you will need to overcome the 7:50.63 who got the Honda Civic Type R in the Ring a year ago. The power of both is the same, so that will have to wait to see the result. Another of the steps you will take to improve the behavior will be an important weight reduction. But still there is no official data, so we will have to wait until the 4th may, , when will take place the presentation of this Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S.
