Volkswagen Golf GTI Anniversary Edition 35 - Web Exclusive

Simply to wet your appetite, Volkswagen has announced the first details of the special edition GTI, which will be called the Golf GTI Edition 35.

May 11, 2011

To many VW enthusiasts, it can often seem like the best cars are only sold in Europe, and this new Anniversary GTI is no different. The car has been built to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the original hot hatch, but since the GTI was introduced to the North American market at a later date, the anniversary isn’t relevant to our market.

Simply to wet your appetite, Volkswagen has announced the first details of the special edition GTI, which will be called the Golf GTI Edition 35. With an increase in power of 25hp over the ‘standard’ 210hp European engine, the Edition 35 will develop around 235hp, making it is most powerful production GTI to date, since the R32 series and latest Golf R aren’t considered GTIs.

The 35th Anniversary car recognizes the uninterrupted history of success that has followed the Golf GTI since it debuted in 1976. During the last 35 years, the GTI has gained cult appeal for its unique blend of sporting appeal, excellent handling and prestige. As a result, the GTI anniversaries have been celebrated with several special models through the years, continuing to the latest Edition 35. In addition to the increased power, the Edition 35 gets a revised front bumper and new lightweight 18” wheels.

Inside, the cabin is treated to a golf ball shift knob, while the ‘35’ signature appears on the head restraints, the center panels of the seats and sill plates. The same ‘35’ can also be found on the front fenders. The Edition 35 will make its world debut at the infamous GTI event at Wörthersee in Austria at the beginning of June.
