The world premiere of the 213 kW/ 290 PS1 strong Golf GTI TCR Concept took place at the legendary GTI meeting at Reifnitz am Wörthersee, Austria.

At the moment, the Golf GTI TCR Concept - an athlete derived from racing sport - is a study. But at the end of the year, we want to make this GTI vision come true”.

With a top speed of 250 km/h on the standard version, the Golf GTI TCR will become the fastest GTI of the current model range. The design, power and performance of the concept follow pure sports car doctrine. Various features contribute to the particularly sporty character of the new Volkswagen, including 18-inch “Belvedere” forged wheels, a high performance braking system with perforated discs, decelerating the production car just as effortlessly as the TCR racing car, and the GTI model features two extra radiators to ensure sufficient cooling for high engine performance.

Its exterior is bound to turn heads with the future standard version; equipped with a newly designed bumper with sharply contoured splitter (front spoiler) which identifies the Golf GTI as a TCR version. There is also a newly designed panel attachment on the side, which is continued to the rear. The Golf has a particularly inviting effect when opening the front doors: the TCR logo is then projected on to the asphalt.

The interior boasts premium sport seats, finished with newly designed microfiber in the contrasting colour “Flash Red”, which is the bridge to the red contrasting stitching on the sports steering wheel. That is - just like racing - provided with a red 12 o’clock stripe.
