Some time in the first half of 2011, the Mk6 Golf GTD was introduced in Singapore. Now, the new generation is about to make its debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Like the Mk6 Golf GTD, the Mk7 version combines the styling details and chassis setup of the GTI with a diesel engine. The GTD will only be offered in three exterior colors, namely Tornado Red, Black and Pure White.

Motivation is provided by a 2.0-litre common rail turbocharged inline-four producing 181bhp and 380Nm of peak torque from 1,750 rpm. The engine is coupled to a standard six-speed manual or an optional six-speed dual clutch DSG. Century sprint is completed in 7.5 seconds while the fastest speed that one can go is 229km/h. The Mk7 Golf GTD shaved off 0.6 seconds in the century sprint performance as compared to its 170bhp predecessor.

On the inside, the GTD gets tartan sports seats, flat-bottom steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and a gear lever with 'GTD' engraving.

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.
