Double delight for Golf GTI fans
The seventh generation of the go-faster Volkswagen is being unveiled at this month's Geneva Motor Show, with plans to bring it to the company's British showrooms in June.
Keen drivers will be able to pick up two versions of the Golf GTI - the standard car, which has 217bhp, and the GTI Performance, which has an extra ten horses beneath the bonnet, along with bigger brakes and a limited slip diff helping to keep the front wheels under control. In the case of the Performance version, the GTI will be able to shoot to sixty miles an hour in 6.4 seconds and then onto a top speed of 155mph.
The order books for the new Golf GTI open at VW showrooms across the UK on March 26, with the exact prices and specifications set to be announced closed to the car's June launch.
