Volkswagen is celebrating its 40th anniversary of the Golf GTI with this special edition Clubsport. This is a continuation of the Volkswagen tradition for GTI anniversary models, as they released exclusive special editions for the 20th, 25th, 30th and 35th anniversaries as well.
Adding 35 hp to the power figures makes this the most powerful production Golf to date. Even better is the over boost function that allows the driver to gain 10 percent more power for a 10 second time period simply by kicking down the accelerator.
Acceleration and top speed have both been improved over the standard GTI models, with added downforce and improved dynamics keeping it all in check. The 6-speed DSG gearbox can get the GTI Clubsport from 0 to 100 kph in 5.9 seconds, the manual option achieves this in 6.0 seconds.
