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.
