40 years of an icon: this is the special edition Golf GTI Clubsport

The Golf GTI is a classic in the automotive world and has a history of success. Initially it was only planned to manufacture 5,000 units and today more than 2 million units of the 7 generations have already been sold. The new GTI Clubsport is the commemorative model for the 40th anniversary of the Golf GTI and also the most powerful GTI from Volkswagen. It is a model with a sports vocation, which will have only 290 exclusive units. The sportiness is not only reflected in the increased power thanks to the “overboost” function, but also in its character and aesthetics, and in its optional equipment.

The exterior image of the Golf GTI Clubsport perfectly captures its sporty character thanks to the exclusive 18-inch (optionally 19) “Belvedere” forged wheels with 225/40 tires, red brake calipers, new front bumper, diffuser rear and the two exhaust pipes, larger in diameter than the usual GTI. The new two-piece spoiler also has a special look. The Golf Clubsport is fitted with xenon headlights and rear LED lights, and incorporates the Clubsport logos on the lower part of the rear doors.

Regarding the interior, Volkswagen has wanted to transfer the driver to the world of competition through some elements such as the sports steering wheel, the seats, with the GTI logo on the backrest, which can optionally be GTI “Buckets” seats, or the linings doors and sides in alcantara and leather. The rear Park Pilot, the selection of the driving profile or the electric mirror operation are other elements that accentuate the sportiness of the Golf GTI Clubsport. On the other hand, it has the most advanced Volkswagen infotainment systems, which further enhance the comfort of this GTI.

The sporty behavior of the Golf GTI Clubsport comes from the 2.0 TSI engine, which offers 265 hp of power. An already extraordinary performance, but that can be increased by means of the “overboost” function, which adds another 25 hp for ten seconds and reaches a peak of 290 hp. The model accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km / h. The TSI 2.0 engine can be combined with a manual or DSG gearbox and consumes 7 l / 100 km. These features are reinforced thanks to elements such as the sports chassis, the electronic adaptive suspension, the variable front differential lock and the ESC Sport system.
