VW Golf GTI Excessive debuts at Wörthersee Show - Web Exclusive

The aptly named Golf GTI Excessive is formed from a series of small modifications to the vehicle's running gear to create a sharper, more focused iteration of the GTI.

The Wörthersee Show is hands down the largest VW gathering in the world. What started in '82 has became an annual hangout for thousands of VW/Audi enthusiasts at the beautiful town of Wörthersee in Austria.

To mark the annual Show, Volkswagen has modified the Mk6 Golf GTI to create a new concept. The aptly named Golf GTI Excessive is formed from a series of small modifications to the vehicle's running gear to create a sharper, more focused iteration of the GTI.

To start, the shock and springs were upgraded to lower the car and give it a sportier drive. Wider track is achieved thanks to 19" BBS motorsport-derived wheels while 370mm front and 310mm rear brakes give the GTI enormous stopping power.

The 2.0 liter TSI engine has been left alone for the most part, but a lighter and more free-flowing exhaust was installed which slightly bumped up horsepower and torque according to VW.

Aesthetic changes to the GTI Excessive include the addition of a deep front splitter and a pair of revised air dams on either side of the grille. A set of sill extensions finished in gloss black are joined by a new rear diffuser framed by a set of titanium-tipped exhaust pipes and a redesigned wing mounted above the rear window.

Inside the GTI Excessive a set of redesigned bucket seats with integrated headrests finished in black and red are fitted along with brushed aluminum and gloss black trim.
