Volkswagen seems to be preparing a special edition of the Golf GTI, which marks its 45th anniversary this year.
The Golf GTI was first released in 1976 and has been a model that has been synonymous with high-performance golf for 45 years. Accordingly, Volkswagen has secretly prepared a very special model to commemorate its 45th anniversary this year, and it was expected to be released to the public soon.
However, before Volkswagen even announced it directly, image information was leaked to the British automotive media Auto Express.
Putting together the leaked information, the 45th Anniversary Edition is based on the 8th generation Golf GTI. Special design elements of the edition include a lower body skirt, a front splitter and a rear spoiler at the top of the hatchback.
The wheels show a unique design with GTI signature red pinstripes around the rim. There are 45 graphics at the bottom of the rear door, and the diffuser has a pair of sturdy exhaust vents.
Whether the 45th Anniversary Edition is based on a 295 hp European-only GTI Club Sport model, a 242 hp 2.0 liter turbo four-cylinder six-speed manual or a standard GTI powertrain with seven-speed dual automatic clutches. Is not yet known.
In addition, the release date, price, and detailed specifications of the Golf GTI Special Edition are also covered by the veil.
