Volkswagen Golf TCR is a 325bhp race car

Volkswagen Golf TCR is a 325bhp race car

Volkswagen had last year shown the Golf TCR as a track-focused concept, designed for customer racing teams. Now with approvals from the management, the Golf GTI TCR is a reality with limited production run of 20 units.

Based on the roadgoing GTI, the TCR version is heavily modified with large rear wing, aero package, massive vents and scoops for air intake, much wider stance and lower ride height. The car uses the 2.0-litre engine producing 325bhp and 410Nm mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox powering the front wheels. While the power does seem a lot for an FWD setup, VW has equipped the TCR with multi-plate differential for appropriate delivery. It is capable of getting to 100kmph from a naught in 5.2 seconds.

The inside is bareboned with just racing seats and a roll cage. It also gets the FIA approved fuel tank, as part of the safety measures.

This is strictly a race car for the 2016 FIA Touring Car Racing International Series and hence “TCR” in the car name. All 20 cars that Volkswagen is producing are already sold out and their performance would be out for everyone to inspect once the season begins.
