400-HP VW Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition Built by Kids

Special Edition

VW apprentices showcase their hot-hatch building skills.

A team of Volkswagen apprentices has unveiled its one-off creation to mark the 33rd Worthersee GTI meeting. Dubbed the Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition, the unique hot-hatch is based on the Performance Edition of the GTI and sees its 2.0-liter turbo-four boosted from 230 to 380 horsepower. That’s thanks to a carbon air box and hand-welded stainless-steel exhaust featuring a vacuum valve control allowing for engine sound adjustment.

Four ladies and eight men, aged 18 to 23, spent nine months on the project, opting for a red and black theme both inside and out. The exterior sports a hand-made spoiler kit, two-tone alloys and Wolfsburg Skyline decal featuring eight landmarks from the region. Inside, leather-wrapped Recaro bucket seats sport GTI tartan and red stitching, there’s a handcrafted center console with integrated iPhone docking, while the boot houses a PlayStation with 24-inch LED-LCD TV set. As well as a boost in performance, the Wolfsburg Edition – named after VW’s home city – comes with an 11-speaker, 2,170-watt audio system.
