2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport limited edition available in UAE
The 40th anniversary Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport is available across showrooms in the UAE, with prices starting from Dhs 145,000.
The GTI Clubsport comes with 18-inch “Belvedere” design wheels as standard. Interior highlights include Alcantara multifunction steering wheel with GTI emblem, red stitching and red 12 o’clock marking. The model is available with or without the sunroof option, in addition to an optional navigation system. 19” wheel options are also available.
The Golf GTI Clubsport 40th birthday edition follows in the tradition of other anniversary models, with exclusive special editions for the 20th, 25th, 30th, and 35th birthday of the GTI. The turbocharged direct-injection engine in the anniversary model delivers an output of 265 hp, which is 45 hp more than the current Golf GTI.
The added boost function in the 40th anniversary model is activated by kicking down the accelerator, temporarily increasing power by more than 25 hp.
Equipped with a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG), the Clubsport completes the 0-100 kph sprint in 5.9 seconds. The interplay of a new front splitter and the also-new rear spoiler produces more downforce, in turn improving cornering ability over the standard model.
