The idea behind this car is simple! A group of four young dudes aged between 19 and 22, who are actually apprentices at VW, have been given a Golf GTI and been told to go and modify it in the way street guys do and there are no holds barred! So they came up with this GTI Street, which to be honest is fantastic!

The first thing you think of when you are going to modify your car, if you are a dude, is to drop the suspension as much as possible! With the GTI Street they’ve gone a bit beyond that and installed a full set of hydraulics so you can adjust the ride height, low rider style!

The next most important items are of course huge wheels. So they managed to fit 19 inch black wheels covered with 225 tires under this poor Golf and also fitted it with bigger brakes from the R32. And it needs bigger brakes because what these guys have done to the engine is insane!

The regular Golf GTI with its 2.0 liter TFSI engine is considered as the king of hot hatches, but down there on the streets sometimes you have to take on much bigger competition so you better be prepared. That’s why the Golf Street packs a much bigger punch in form of 301 horsepower! That is quit a lot in a car the size of a shoe!

The car also features a very cool black and white theme inside and out which looks pretty nice indeed. This, I think is proper tuning done by guys who are the actual inventors of this business. It makes all of the jobs done by those big companies who have highly qualified engineers, suddenly look dull! The Golf GTI Street is on show currently at the Wörthersee meeting in Austria where VW also is showing their own modded Golf GTI and Polo GTI.
