On the occasion of the Wörthersee festival, the German manufacturer presents the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Concept . Technically, this is only a concept , but we already know that it will be marketed shortly. This is certainly not the most powerful GTI produced by Volkswagen , because we remind you that the manufacturer has marketed Golf GTI Clubsport S , whose cavalry is 310 hp.
The series model should look like two drops of water to this concept. There are 18 “wheels (19” wheels are optional), specific discs and brake calipers, slightly redesigned shields, a sportier diffuser and two impressive exhaust outlets. This Golf GTI TCR Concept receives a more worked and sporty chassis, as well as an adaptive damping.
Under the hood of the sports, there is still the 2.0 TSI engine that officiates in several other sports group Volkswagen. In this version, it delivers no less than 290 hp and 370 Nm of torque from 1600 rpm. This power is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed automatic clutch transmission.
As stated earlier, the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Concept is not the most powerful of the GTIs. However, she has the honor to be the fastest of the GTI. Indeed, the Golf GTI Clubsport S reaches a top speed of 260 km / h. The German manufacturer will offer customers to lift the speed limit on the Golf GTI TCR to reach 264 km / h! This difference of 4 km / h is probably not significant, but grants the title of “fastest GTI” to the TCR version.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR will enter the assembly lines at the end of 2018. Its price remains confidential …
