Volkswagen GTI Clubsport Teased

Earlier today, Volkswagen gave its Facebook fans a few teaser images of the near-production GTI Clubsport ahead of its intended debut at the GTI Meeting at Worthersee. This two-door hatchback is set to be the most powerful production Golf GTI yet.

According to Autocar, the new model is expected to go on sale in the U.K. next year with a starting price of around 27,500 pounds, which converts to about $42,475 in today's money. The timing marks the 40th anniversary of the hot hatch that originally hit showroom floors back in 1976. Volkswagen has outfitted the GTI Clubsport with a new body kit, unique front bumper with a large central air duct and honeycomb inserts, high-gloss black door mirror housings, and a black graphic along the lower edges of the doors to pay tribute to the first Golf GTI. The rear features a new spoiler, restyled bumper, and an integrated diffuser with twin chrome tailpipes.

Power comes in the form of the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine currently found under the hood of the standard Golf GTI, but with more power. The standard model gets up to 230 hp when equipped with a performance package, while the GTI Clubsport produces up to 291 hp with a function that temporarily increases turbocharger boost pressure. However, standard horsepower for the Clubsport hits 265 hp.

Volkswagen has kept other performance numbers to itself, but rumor has it that the boost in horsepower will see the new model go from 0-62 mph in under 6.4 seconds. Top speed may also increase to 155 mph.
