Volkswagen will be bringing a brand new Golf GTI model in to the mix this year, and it’s a road version of the rapid GTI TCR that is a two-time winner of the international TCR race series. While customers won’t get the 350bhp of the model from the race track, it will get 290bhp, which is a modest improvement of 45bhp over the previous top-performing GTI (the GTI Performance).

Even though VW are calling this model a Special Edition, it’s unclear as to whether this will be a limited run, or if it will be available to anybody going forward. Only time will tell.

While the Golf GTI TCR is just a concept with a working prototype at the moment, Volkswagen do seem intent on bringing this version to market very soon. We hope to have more details later this year.
