Golf GTI Edition 35
World debut at Worthersee:
35 years of the Golf GTI! Volkswagen is celebrating the anniversary of this icon with the new Golf GTI Edition 35. 173 kW / 235 PS of power (25 PS more than the normal GTI) and a fast 247 km/h top speed; 6 kg/PS power density. It will be a collector’s item from day one – arriving right on the 35th anniversary of the GTI legend.

Since then, the GTI advanced to become the most successful compact sports car in automotive history. 5,000 GTIs were planned – yet the GTI of our day is irrepressibly approaching the production milestone of 2 million units built!
