We previously announced on the News pages at www.eurotuner.com, that VW was celebrating the 35th anniversary of its GTI model at the GTI-Treffen in Wörthersee, Austria.
Its first move was to release an Edition 35 model, seen here in red, for European customers. The car gets a 235hp turbo engine and new front spoiler, plus a number of cosmetic upgrades over the regular Golf GTI. It’s unlikely we’ll see this model in the US since the GTI was released later in this country, so doesn’t share the same anniversary. See the full story on the Edition 35 on the News pages at www.eurotuner.com
We’ve managed to obtain photos of the Edition 35’s world debut on the VW stage at GTI-Treffen, which included a number of models and a rock band.
To further celebrate the GTI’s anniversary, a number of other special editions were recalled to the stage. These included the Mk5 Golf GTI Edition 30, Mk4 Golf GTI 25, Mk3 Golf GTI Edition 20 and an original Mk1 Golf GTI from where the legend began.
