Volkswagen launched the original Volkswagen Golf GTI in Europe in June 1976. To mark the occasion, the automaker’s launch of the Golf GTI Edition 35 limited this summer in the European markets. Prices in Europe will start from around $ 43,000, with first deliveries planned in mid June.
With 233 horsepower on tap from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder – 25 more horsepower than the standard version – VW says this is the most powerful production GTI to date.
The Edition 35 sports are lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels and a revised front bumper, and a traditional “golf ball” shift knob.
Edition 35 logos appear on the front fenders, sills, the seats and headrests.
The Golf GTI Edition 35 will be his public debut in early June on the 2011 GTI Meet at Wörthersee, Austria.
