Volkswagen Clubsport S Will Be The Most Powerful GTI EVER

Lightweight

This lightweight track model will be absolutely insane!

Volkswagen has confirmed that it will bring a new model to the Wörthersee GTI Meet in Austria next week. Volkswagen often reveals crazy concept versions of the GTI at this meet but this year it is bringing a production model! The GTI Clubsport was built as a 40th anniversary model for the GTI. Now VW has upped the ante with the GTI Clubsport S. This hardcore, track-focused model is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making an insane 305 horsepower. To make the car as light as possible the rear seat has been ditched.

The GTI Clubsport won't function well as a family hauler, but it will be insanely fast. The car was spotted doing high speed testing at the Nürburgring. Volkswagen says that the car will be built as a limited production model of 5,000 units. Volkswagen hasn't given a hint about price, but it will be pricier than the current Clubsport and Golf R models. It is almost certain that this car will not be brought to the US, which is too bad. The Clubsport S will rival other hardcore hatchbacks in Europe like the Renaultsport Megane 275. The rumor is that VW used the Porsche 911 GT3 Clubsport as inspiration for this new GTI, so it will probably be amazing to drive.
