The range of the new Golf 8 has added layers at high speed in recent months including versions awaited as GTI, GTD, and GTE, the version hipervitamin Clubsport, and of course the crown jewel as the Golf R. However, it seems that Volkswagen wants to continue nurturing the family with an even more special model that also serves to celebrate the 45 years that the Golf GTI celebrates this year 2021.
And it is that such a special anniversary could not be without an Anniversary edition to match, so after having seen it in advance a few days ago the German brand has already officially presented and in detail the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45, an edition even more special from the GTI that comes with exclusive aesthetics and equipment and even some improvements to go even faster.
Golf 45 years very well carried
Its status as a special Anniversary edition is already clear on the outside, where we find the number 45 that this model wears on its side skirts accompanied by a sporty vinyl, to which is added a black roof and spoiler, the latter rendering tribute to the rear window of the first Golf GTI.
Beyond that we are faced with the same base that the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2021 has already shown us recently with a similar body both at the level of bumpers and skirts, even its rear spoiler is the same. However, the Clubsport 45 incorporates the Race package as standard, which adds 19-inch Scottsdale alloy wheels in gloss black and tornado red rims, in addition to a sports exhaust system and especially the elimination of the speed limiter set in 250 km / h, which will allow this GTI to go even faster.
The exclusive celebratory touches continue in the interior, where the letters GTI are present on the front sports seats, while the number 45 also makes an appearance on the sports steering wheel.
Despite everything, the benefits of this special version of the Clubsport have not been altered concerning the standard version. This means that this Golf still features the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 300PS of power and 400Nm of peak torque, combined with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with shorter transmissions than the standard GTI. and that make possible acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 6.0 seconds. Added to that is a sportier set-up that includes a front limited-slip differential.
