Volkswagen has announced details about the latest special edition Volkswagen Golf GTI - the Golf GTI Edition 35 - which celebrates the 35th anniversary of the original hot hatch.
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 boasts an increase of 25PS, developing 235PS, the most powerful production Golf GTI to date.
Since the debut of the original Volkswagen Golf GTI in 1976, the GTI has gained cult appeal, as well as independent brand and milestone GTI anniversaries, celebrated with special models.
As well as the power increase, the new Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 features design elements specially created for the model. A revised front bumper and lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels are to be seen on the exterior, whilst the interior sees a return to the golf ball gearknob. A '35' signature appears on the front wings, sill plates, head restraints and on the centre panel of the seats.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 with debut at the GTI event at Worthersee in Austria at the beginning on June 2011.
Orders in the UK for the Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 will open later this year, with prices and full UK specification being released in due course.Published 11 May 2011
