VW Golf GTI TCR Concept Unveiled As The Fastest Golf GTI Ever

Volkswagen Golf Estate TGI GMotion

While that's down on the 330 hp and 302 lb-ft that the GTI TCR race auto makes, it's still a healthy bump over the standard GTI's 220 hp and 258 lb-ft.

Volkswagen has revealed the Golf GTI TCR Concept, a production-bound special edition that makes its official debut at the Wörthersee festival.

Unveiling the GTI TCR concept, Jürgen Stackmann, Sales, Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, said: "At the moment, the Golf GTI TCR Concept - an athlete derived from racing - is a study".

The new top GTI is a compelling expression of design, power and performance.

The new vehicle is due at the end of the year and will be the fastest and most powerful GTI to date, at least as far as production cars are concerned, with VW confirming an unrestricted top speed of 164 miles per hour to be made possible by an increase in output to 290 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque.

The Golf TCR is rumored to come fitted with a limited-slip diff, which should quell the wheel spin, and it will come with the quick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and a unique body kit.

"The factory-set maximum speed is 155 miles per hour, but this can be increased to 164 miles per hour by opting to remove the electronic top-speed limiter", VW promises. Behind the alloy wheels are perforated brake discs with special brake calipers and pads. VW says the GTI TCR will feature 18-inch wheels as standard but buyers will be able to select a 19-inch set. It allows the electronically adjustable dampers to be adjusted at the touch of a button and provides the option to choose between sporty, comfort or normal chassis settings.

At the rear there is a new diffuser and integrated exhaust system tailpipes and at the sides is a newly designed panel attachment, which is continued in the rear. The concept also gets a new side skirt extension and an optional GTI-style honeycomb trim for the side of the vehicle.

Inside the cabin, premium sport seats come covered with new microfibre/fabric materials.
