Volkswagen reveals Golf GTI TCR Concept

Volkswagen reveals Golf GTI TCR Concept

A concept in name only.

"At the moment, the Golf GTI TCR Concept - an athlete derived from racing - is a study". For now, at least, there are no plans to bring it across the Atlantic. The novelty debuted at the largest meeting fans GTI lake wörthersee, Austria. Typically it's a weird concept, like a midengined Golf, but this time out, the concept is destined for production.

This is the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR. "But at the end of the year, we want to make this GTI vision come true", stated Jürgen Stackmann, Sales, Board of Management of Volkswagen AG.

Inspired by the TCR race vehicle, the roadgoing version is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 286 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque from 1,600 rpm. Surprisingly, there's no manual option. Power is delivered to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and limited-slip differential. Two extra radiators will help ensure sufficient cooling for high engine performance. Rumors indicate it will be an even more track-focused than the GTI Clubsport S. It should also be able to reach 164 miles per hour with its 155-mph limiter removed. The hot hatchback packed 326 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque from its 2.0-liter inline four.

The former quarterback released a statement regarding his hospitalization, "Thank you for your concern and kind messages". Manziel recently acknowledged he's bipolar, but it's uncertain whether the medication is connected to the diagnosis.

Small, but mighty! The 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder is capable of pushing the GTI TCR 164 miles per hour.

VW says the Golf GTI TCR is "almost ready for production", which seems a polite way of saying it could be sat in a showroom right now. The exterior of Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Concept features newly designed bumpers and the front one features sharp-looking splitter. There are also oversized twin exhaust finishers. The newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels are optionally available.

The GTI is of particular interest for the German carmaker. The seat centre sections are in the contrasting colour Flash Red, which serves as a bridge to the red contrasting stitching on the sports steering wheel. Smaller touches include projectors under the wing mirrors that beam the TCR logo onto the floor when the doors are opened.
