Official: Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45

Headlight of the Golf GTI Clubsport 45

After some grainy pictures, it is time for Volkswagens official announcement of the Golf GTI Clubsport 45.

It is now a five-year tradition of Volkswagen. In 1996 the first GTI to receive an Anniversary Edition, now it is the turn of the sixth Golf GTI. Volkswagen calls this car the Golf GTI Clubsport 45. So it is not just any GTI, but a Clubsport. Just a little more power, bigger brakes and a modified suspension compared to a normal GTI.

Ass of the Golf GTI Clubsport 45

Does this Clubsport GTI 45 have even more power? No, not that. Because where Volkswagen sometimes wanted to play under the hood in previous special Golfjes, they hardly interfered with it this time. However, at the outlet. They have thrown away the original exhaust. Instead, they screwed an Akrapovič sports exhaust under the Golf GTI Clubsport 45. You will also be able to go a little faster with this Golf than other Clubsports. The 45 does not have a limited top speed of 250 km / h.

It’s an Anniversary model, so expect at least one hat tap to the past too. With this model, that is mainly the black roof and the black rear spoiler, Volkswagen writes. That must refer to the wide black frame around the rear window of a first generation Golf GTI. Let’s just call it a very subtle hat tap …

Other perks include the standard Race package, which includes 19 ”Scottsdale wheels. These are in black and have a thin red border. We also see racing and 45 stickers at the doors. According to Volkswagen, we should also see this on the tailgate, although this is not visible in the included photos. The only news in the interior we see on the steering wheel. There is the number 45 at the bottom.

Volkswagen will start sales in ‘certain European countries’ on March 1. The manufacturer gives a German price of 47,790 euros. This is 6525 euros more than an entry-level Clubsport costs there.

    I have to say the design is quite calm, I would almost say beautiful!

    What a foolishness and that in the time of the edges and lines that lead nowhere.

    Still miss those shell seats, something the club sport of yesteryear had (as an option). It’s a shame that these are nowhere to be opted for.
