Hardcore VW Golf GTI TCR to debut soon

Hardcore VW Golf GTI TCR to debut soon

Volkswagen's Golf GTI race vehicle developed for the TCR International Series is about to spawn a road-going version.

Production is set for the end of 2018, though pricing details and whether there'll be any United Kingdom availability is still to be confirmed. For comparison, the Golf GTI TCR racer packs 345 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. With the limiter removed, it can reach a maximum speed of 164mph, 9mph more than the Golf R. Standard top speed of the TCR is 155mph, the same as the Golf R. The turbo engine of the new Golf GTI TCR delivers the 286 bhp between 5,000 and 6,800 rpm. The new GTI TCR Concept is just such a auto, but in VW's words is "very near production".

Now we see the performance from the period beginning the first day of the current calendar or fiscal year up to the current date. The process involves spotting the amount of risk involved and either accepting or mitigating the risk linked with an investment.

Get ready for the fastest Golf GTI yet. Power will be fed to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch automatic. VW will likely also offer a mechanical limited-slip differential. The vehicle will feature different front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser.

The GTI TCR will be revealed in full next week and, like the Golf GTI Clubsport Edition 40 from 2016, the GTI TCR will make it to production and end up sitting just beneath the Golf R. It's expected to go on-sale later this year.

The special edition is the road version of the two-time overall victor of the global TCR race series: the Golf GTI TCR of the same name.
