VW's GTI Celebrates its 30th B-day w/a New Edition

Posted Image

Now, those of you reading this and rolling your eyes at yet another special edition from Volkswagen take note: this is no garden-variety GTI. You see, like the Edition 30 study, the production car has a pumped-up version of the 2.0 FSI lurking under the bonnet. Eschewing traditional birthday candles, Volkswagen elected to instead add 1 horsepower for every year since the introduction of the original GTI. That means the 2.0 FSI hiding under the bonnet now delivers a healthy 230 horsepower to the front wheels, as opposed to the standard car's 200. That's enough to earn the Edition 30 bragging rights as the most powerful GTI ever. Buyers can select between a six-speed manual or a DSG transmission to wrangle the increased power.

Available in three- and five-door body styles, the Edition 30 receives a subdued body kit that incorporates a new chin spoiler, side skirts and rear bumper. The car's 18" "Pescara" wheels look worlds better than the black painted GTI wheels the design study featured, which were seriously ugly. The Pescaras are exclusive to the Edition 30, and are the most obvious exterior tip-off that this is no standard GTI.
