Almost a year ago that we met in the video the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR as a tribute to the Golf TCR of competition and as a substitute of the Volkswagen Golf GTI in its version Clubsport. Despite the fact that the Golf R will follow the signing of the option more prestacional of the range, the arrival of the new Golf GTI TCR is presented as the alternative more fun. We talk about the Volkswagen Golf GTI most powerful ever made, adding to it a package of improvements that make the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR a serious rival to the Honda Civic Type-R, Renault Megane RS or the Hyundai i30 N.
Was at the festival Wörthersee 2018 when we got to know in direct to the Golf GTI TCR concept, a model that although was almost like a production car, what is certain is that he has had to wait until 2019 to confirm their arrival to the streets. The good thing is that from that “prototype” is preserved intact for the recipe, encountering the concept GTI risen to its maximum expression to offer an alternative to the Golf R only front-wheel-drive.
The Golf GTI TCR employs a setup specific that leaves us with an engine 2.0 TSI 290 HP of maximum power, the same engine that SEAT Leon Cupra, coupled to an automatic change DSG of 7 relations , and front-wheel drive with limited-slip differential. The team of suspensions has been revised to reduce the height in 20 milímietros, and there is the possibility of installing the suspension, adaptive DCC. The computer brake is specific, we can count on the perforated discs on the front axle, as well as wheels 18 or 19″. Optionally can be installed tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, as well as a maximum speed of 260 Km/h instead of the limitation to 250 Km/h that brings series.
In terms of design, the Golf GTI TCR is characterized by the use of bumpers with specific hardware in lacquered black for the front splitter, the footpegs, or the rear diffuser. The exhaust has dual output, one to each side, and may be replaced by a system in Titanium signed by Akrapovic. It also adds a spoiler of a larger size on the tailgate. Those who wish to do so can add vinyl specific for car body with hexagonal motives or the legend “TCR”. Inside the changes affect the design of the upholstery of the seats, with red accents to drawings and seams, with a sports steering wheel trimmed in leather with the reference position in red color.
