During this weekend Worthersee Festival, Volkswagen will introduce a new concept, developed by a group of apprentices and called Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition. As the name suggest, the concept is based on the Performance Edition of the compact car.
In the implementation of the project and in choosing the name for their car, the 12 apprentices, aged between 18 and 23, were inspired by the 40th anniversary of the Golf.
On the outside, the two-door model is painted in Absolute red with decor strips in Negro Magico black. Entirely hand painted, the car has unique accesories like spoilers and claw-type inserts on the front bumper, door sills, and a rear spoiler with additional flaps and a rear diffuser. The side stripes fading to the rear are reminiscent of the first-generation Golf GTI.
For the interior, the young cretores followed the same colors as on the outside: two Recaro bucket seats at the front and a rear seat bench with black leather upholstery, red stripes over the headrests, black leather multi-function steering wheel with red spokes and the the hand-crafted center console with an integrated, stowable iPhone Docking Station.
The concept uses the same 2.0 liter turbocharged engine as the standard car, but it jumps from just 230 hp to a mighty 380 hp. All this thanks to a hand-welded stainless steel exhaust system featuring vacuum valve control.
