Instead, they have been reportedly planning do their own special editions. To them, the GTI is creating very good customer response over there and they don’t need special editions to move it.

The GTI Edition 35 is powered by a revised 2.0 liter TFSI petrol engine (a detuned version of the 2.0 liter TFSI unit in the Golf R) that develops 235 PS (173 kW / 232 hp) – a gain of 25 PS over the 211 PS (155 kW / 207 hp) of the standard GTI.

Volkswagen faced several impediments on the way while introducing the model to United States as being offered in Europe. For instance, sports seats did not meet federal safety standard. Further, the front spoiler which VW of America believed was too low for US roads.

However, the variant is available in markets like Germany carrying a price tag of around €30,425.

The Golf GTI 16S comes across as a racing machine that takes off from the 1977 Golf GTI. Sporting a 1.6 liter unit instead of the usual 2.0 liter TFSI, the car will have within itself a power plant that generates 215 PS (158 kW / 211 bhp) and coupled with a 5-speed racing gearbox from VW Motorsport. Further, the model will also boast of a Billstein chassis and an 80-liter fuel tank. Meanwhile, the VW Golf24 will be presented as an endurance racer.

We have our eyes trained on Golf GTI Edition 35, which in fact will be presented in celebration of GTI’s 35th anniversary. To boast of more power than the standard GTI via the revised 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine that returns 235 PS (173 kW / 232 hp) instead of the usual 210 PS (155 kW / 207 hp). This model which will go into production has been made available for order in Germany. You may go ahead if you can part with €30,425.
