Since the debut of the first Golf GTI in 1976, the iconic model has enjoyed an uninterrupted history of success which now spans 35 years. During this time, the GTI has become a car with cult appeal as well as an independent brand and milestone GTI anniversaries have been celebrated with exclusive special models, and Volkswagen continues this tradition with the Edition 35.
In addition to the increase in power, the Edition 35 combines classic GTI design elements with features specially created for this latest anniversary model.
A revised front bumper is joined by lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels while, in the cabin, the golf ball gearknob makes a return. To mark out this special edition further, the '35' signature appears on the front wings, sill plates, head restraints and on the centre panel of the seats.
This latest anniversary model will make its world debut at the legendary GTI event at Wörthersee in Austria at the beginning of June.
The Golf GTI Edition 35 will open for order in the UK later this year. Prices and full UK specification will be announced in due course.
