The Volkswagen Golf GTI most powerful ever created. The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport is already a production model, and will be in the Frankfurt so we can play. Volkswagen has created a special edition of the Golf GTI Рstraddling the GTI and the R Рto celebrate the 40th anniversary of GTI . It has a engine 2.0 TSI with 265 hp and a sports bodystyling sets it apart from other courses. Is GTI sportier and focused on the circuits ever created, and only differs from the prototype presented earlier this year at Wörthersee.

A look “boy racer” for GTI always

The two rear exhaust pipes and emblems in red tell us that this is not a GTI either.

looks like the Volkswagen Golf GTI had rejuvenated a few years and had passed through the gym. The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport is wider, aggressive and sportier than the GTI . In its front it debuts a new bumper, fitted with a prominent lateral air intakes – possibly just decorative. However, this does manage front redesigned to give more downforce to the Golf GTI , besides the gigantic spoiler located at the rear. They are certainly two of the most distinctive features of this model.

Painted color “Onyx White” – although available in other colors – forms a delightful contrast with a black roof, side sills with “Clubsport” logo, mirrors carcasses black color and gigantic spoiler also dark . Details very select red – as the logo GTI back – scattered throughout the body put the spicy touch to this GTI .

Inside, hardly anything has changed from the prototype. This means that we maintain the fantastic bacquets with upholstery characteristic of GTI , plus an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel with a red sign on top. The scorecard does not vary, but there are other interesting details like the handle of the shifter in the form of a golf ball, as they had the classic models. Some moldings, floor mats and door openings are also specific.
