Even though the Volkswagen GTI Roadster kind of stole the show at this year’s Worthersee meeting, the main attraction of the event for the fans was the tricked-out Golf GTI models that VW and tuners had brought along. This is one of the more interesting ones, the Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition built by VW apprentices.
The young apprentices from Volkswagen’s Wolfsburg plant schooled the big time engineers on how to make a proper hot hatch by boosting the output of a standard GTI from 210 horsepower to a massive 380 horsepower.
To get that kind of power from that sweet 2.0 liter TSI engine the boys and girls who worked on Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition adjusted the turbo boost, replaced the exhaust system with a bespoke, hand-welded system, and installed a high-end carbon fiber intake system.
Visually, they painted the car in a vibrant red garnished with black graphics, and installed black wheels and red brake calipers. As you’d expect, they have also fitted a top-notch entertainment system including a 24-inch LED TV, a Playstation, iPhone docking, and a kicking 11-speaker, 2,170-watt stereo.
