In the 2018 GTI Meeting at Wörthersee, Volkswagen presented a new Milestone in the history of the cult compact car into Golf GTI fans: the VW Golf GTI TCR, that has a high rate of 264 km/h and is nearly ready for production. The special edition is a street variant, derived for the series, of the racing vehicle of the identical name and two-time complete winner of the global TCR race series. The successful touring racing car’s specs make the new top model a dominating presence: layout, power and performance are inherent to the pure sports car philosophy. The 2.0 litre turbo engine of the brand new Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR delivers 213 kW / 290 PS (in 5,000 to 6,800 rpm). The most torque of 370 Nm lies between 1,600 and 4,300 rpm. Electricity is transmitted to the front brakes as standard via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) and a locking differential. The factory-set maximum rate is 250 km/h, but this can be increased to 264 km/h as stated above by choosing to eliminate the digital Vmax limiter. Wherever the digital speedometer needle (normal Active Info Screen) ceases, the newly developed roof edge spoiler ensures the necessary downforce at the rear axle. The new Golf GTI TCR is forecast to be launched in the end of 2018.
