Celebrating the birthday of an icon: The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45
2021 marks the 45th anniversary of the Golf GTI and Volkswagen have celebrated it by launching the GTI Clubsport 45. The Golf GTI launched in the Summer of 1976 and was a car that no one knew would become one of the best selling hot hatches of all time. Originally, Volkswagen had produced 5,000 GTI's back in 1976, but now with over 2.3 million sold today, the GTI has cemented itself as an icon in the performance car market.
The Golf GTI Clubsport 45 will be a highly sought after collector's item, thanks to its extensive cosmetic changes.
So what does the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45 offer?
The GTI Clubsport 45 keeps the same engine as the standard Clubsport, with the 300bhp engine proving to be an exceptionally capable one. Both models offer a front-axle locking differential integrated with the driving dynamics manager. And both will feature the 'Special' driving mode for race tracks. It comes with IQ.Light LED matrix headlights that have an attractive red strip across the top, but so does the standard Clubsport.
Cosmetic changes are where you'll notice the big difference for the GTI Clubsport 45. It gets an exterior makeover with a striking black roof, complete with a new black roof spoiler. This is a homage to the first produced GTI models, which featured a black-framed rear window. The Clubsport 45 features an eye-catching '45' decal strip along the side sill panel, which gives the car a more sporty look. Add in some exceptional 19-inch Scottsdale alloy wheels finished in high black gloss, and you have a devastatingly attractive machine.
On the interior, the Clubsport 45 is dotted with various embellishments showcasing the GTI lettering on places like the backrests of the front premium sport seats. The multi-function flat bottomed steering wheel also features a '45' symbol at the bottom. It's all very upmarket and individual. Perfect for those after a collector's item that will only become rarer as time goes on.
How much will the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45 cost?
The GTI Clubsport 45 is set to go on sale in Germany in Spring 2021 for €47,790. Converted to GBP you'll be looking at around £41,304 for this soon-to-be highly coveted model.
