Volkswagen Unveils Golf GTI Club Sport

Volkswagen has increased the number of members of the 8th generation new golf lineup. It is a more powerful GTI Clubsport model than GTI. If you’re a hatchback fan, you’ve probably heard of the Clubsport version at least once. The previous generation broke the 7 minutes 50 seconds 63 set by the Honda Civic Type R in 2016 at Nurburgring Nordschleife, Germany, and recorded 7 minutes 49 seconds 21, breaking the highest lap time of a front wheel drive (FF) mass-produced car.

The model to be introduced today is the successor to the position between GTI and Golf R. The inline four-cylinder 2.0L gasoline turbo engine jumped to 300 horsepower. It is more than 50 horsepower more powerful than a general GTI that emits 245 horsepower. The maximum torque is 40.8kg‧m in engagement with the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The so-called “zero back” acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h has been reduced to less than 6 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited at 250 km/h.

It looks more spicy. It looks like the line that runs from the eyebrows to the inside of the emblem is painted red, but the bumper is more aggressive. A large pore was pierced to both ends. In addition, the vehicle body was lowered by 15 mm than that of the general GTI, and the positive camper of the front axle was improved to increase straightforward driving. In addition, the Vehicle Dynamics Manager (VDM) system has been improved to suppress the understeer phenomenon peculiar to front wheel rolling.


For reference, VDM manages four things: steering, throttle, transmission, and damper. The damping pressure of each wheel is massaged up to 200 times per second. There is no all-wheel drive system, but you can increase the tire’s ground limit.

Inside the room, there is a hidden “treasure mode”. In addition to general driving modes such as normal and sports, a mode specialized for Nurburgring driving has been prepared. According to Volkswagen, in this setting, the suspension foot is much smoother than in Sport mode. The Nurburgring has a higher elevation difference than other circuits, and some courses have poor road conditions, so it provides an optimal setting for the body to be flexible. Thanks to this, the lap time is 13 seconds faster than the regular GTI.

The interior design is not much different from the regular GTI, with the seats removed from the traditional checkered fabric. The leather seams are filled with red thread, creating a high-performance atmosphere.

Volkswagen plans to sell Golf GTI Clubsport from the end of this year, and the price is 37,000 pounds (about 5476 million won).
