This special version, based on the Golf GTI Clubsport, will be available in selected European countries next week. Here are the features of the new Golf GTI Clubsport 45:
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45, whose visuals were recently leaked, were officially introduced today. The German brand celebrates the 45th anniversary of the Golf GTI, which has been on the market since 1976, with this special version.
This special version of the Golf is based on the Golf GTI Clubsport version, as the name suggests. The details that make it stand out in terms of design are the black roof and rear spoiler, the special racing package, 19-inch Scottsdale alloy wheels where black and red meet. In addition, the ’45’ stickers on the lower part of the rear doors are among the striking details.
The racing package, which is among the features of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45, brings the sports exhaust system with it, and also removes the 250 km / h limit in the maximum speed section. Matrix LED headlights come as standard in the model in question, while the interior features premium sports seats and a steering wheel with 45 badges on the central arm.
The inside of the shell is the same as the standard Golf GTI Clubsport. This means that we are talking about a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder unit that powers the front wheels through a 7-speed DSG, producing 296 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. The gear ratio of the fiery hatch, which completes the acceleration of 0-100 km / h in 6 seconds, is also shorter than the standard GTI.
On the other hand, all Golf GTI Clubsport models have VAQ electromechanical locked front differential instead of the electronic XDS system. The adaptive suspension system not only includes a new mode specific to the Nurburgring track, but also provides the driver with 15 different levels between Comfort and Sport modes, allowing them to adjust the suspension they prefer.
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45 version will be available in some European countries from 1 March. The starting price is set at 47,790 euros. For comparison, the standard GTI Clubsport’s starting price in Germany is 41,265 euros. Golf R starts at 49,260 euros.
