The GTI Wolfsburg Edition will go on sale in Q1 2013 and only 2000 units will be produced. For the GTI Driverís Edition, it will be available in Q2 2013 with 3000 units up for grab. This implies that the production version of the MK7 Golf GTI should hit the market soon after mid-2013.

The GTI Wolfsburg Edition wears 18-inch "Laguna" alloy wheels on the outside. On the inside, the gear stick has a golf ball-like knob and red stitching on the steering wheel, gearbox housing and floor mats. For the Driverís Edition, on top of the Wolfsburg Edition's goodies, it gets sunroof and navigation package and partial leather seat coverings. Last but not least, the car comes with a GTI gear pack that includes a hat, keychain, parking sign and a Certificate of Authenticity.

The Golf GTI is powered by a 210bhp 2.0-litre TSI engine. Mated to a six-speed DSG gearbox, it goes from 0 to 100km/h in 6.9 seconds.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Looks like a bigger polo!

Good for polo owners I guess.
