Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR teased

By Faiming_low on 05 May 2018 in New model

Attached Image Volkswagen is set to launch a special edition for the mk7.5 Golf GTI and it will be using the TCR nameplate, similar to the 345bhp TCR race car.

Following the success of the Clubsport variant of the pre-facelift Mk7 GTI, the upcoming uprated GTI TCR will be announced the GTI meeting at Worthersee, in a few days' time. With 286bhp and 370Nm, the GTI TCR's 2.0-litre turbocharged engine produces 25bhp more than the Mk7 Clubsport but loses out to the 306bhp Clubsport S.

Volkswagen also confirmed that the GTI TCR will come with a limited-slip differential, paired to a dual-clutch DSG gearbox, as standard. It is unknown whether it is available in manual guise but guessing that its TCR race car is only available with the DSG gearbox, it is unlikely the TCR road car will have a manual option.

Elsewhere, the car seems to have gain a slightly more menacing front and rear look. The new wheels add on to give the whole car a more purposeful stance.


The production car is expected to go on sale by the end of the year.
