Volkswagen to reveal an even more powerful 290bhp Golf GTI

Volkswagen to reveal an even more powerful 290bhp Golf GTI

Volkswagen is set for yet another special version of the Golf GTI at Worthersee which is known to host the largest GTI meet in the world. This time around, the German car giant will present the Golf GTI TCR, which is nearly ready for production. 

As a tribute to fans, the 290bhp GTI will be unveiled at Worthersee. It will then be launched at the end of the year. The special edition is the road version of the two-time overall winner of the international TCR race series: the Golf GTI TCR of the same name. The turbo engine delivers the 290bhp mentioned above at between 5,000 and 6,800 rpm. A 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) and a front axle differential lock (both standard) are responsible for power transmission and traction.

The top speed is electronically limited to 250kmph but can be increased to 264kmph by removing the limiter. With more than 2.2 million units sold, the Golf GTI has become one of the world's most successful hot hatchbacks. It all started life in 1976 as a 110bhp front-wheel drive car. Originally, only 5,000 cars of the original GTI were to be built – 4,400 times as many have now been produced.
