The first VW Golf GTI invented the class of sporty compact cars in 1976. Today, 35 years later, the sixth generation still sets the class standards. For the anniversary there now is an exclusive special model from, for which WUNSCHEL SPORT served as highly competent tuning partner.

Because power is not a sin, particularly in a GTI, the professionals from Röslau in Bavaria add another 50 horsepower to the power output of the four-cylinder turbo engine. A newly calibrated engine management system bumps power output of the direct-injection engine from standard 210 hp / 154 kW to 260 hp / 191 kW at 5,700 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque jumps from 280 Nm to 360 Nm, available on a plateau between 2,600 and 5,100 rpm.

Driving performance benefits accordingly: With a sprint time from 0 - 100 km/h of 6.4 seconds the speedster with six-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission bests its production brethren by approximately half a second. Top speed increases to 255 km/h. This means the anniversary model is not just some 15 km/h faster than the production car; it also shames much more expensive sports cars and luxury sedans. emphasizes not only speed but also more driving fun through even more agile handling. Formula 1 supplier OZ Racing contributes its brand-new Quaranta wheel in size 8.5Jx19. With this alloy wheel the Italian manufacturer celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2011. These wheels are mounted with size 235/35 ZR 19 high-performance tires and make perfect use of the available space in the wheel wells.

The OZ wheel is also the perfect visual fit for this car thanks to its especially innovative styling featuring an offset combination of five-spoke and cross-spoke designs. It is painted exactly the same titanium shade as the exterior of the GTI. The precisely matched color scheme is rounded out perfectly with titanium-colored body parts such as the inner sections of front and rear spoiler and the rocker panel trim, which are matte black on the production car.

A lower center of gravity, high-performance tires and a wider track all contribute to improved driving dynamics. The WUNSCHEL SPORT springs are calibrated to the production shocks and lower the ride height of the special model from by some 25 millimeters.

In addition to the king-size OZ wheels the is further distinguished by a décor with a true racing look that further increases the eye-catcher effect of this exclusive special model.
