VW have just confirmed that they will be making an Up! GTI. But for now they have given us a sneak preview of this………
The Up! GTI concept car which will make its World Premiere at the (now legendary) GTI Meet, Lake Wörthersee on the 24th to 27th May 2017.
This new up! GTI is promising to follow in the true fashion of the original Mk1 Golf GTI that made its debut back in 1976.
At the front of the car it has the trade mark GTI red stripe on the grill, double black strip on the bottom of the sills, sports suspension, high gloss black door mirror caps, a roof spoiler and 17 inch alloys wheels.
Inside, the original theme continues with the “clark” tartan seat pattern, leather trimmed steering wheel and a GTI gear knob.

We Blog Any Car thoughts…………….
With the Fiat Abarth and the Vauxhall Adam S stealing the show, it is about time that VW produce a small GTI car.
This should follow in the footsteps of the now cult status VW Lupo GTI.
I just don’t know why it has taken VW so long??????
It will be launched in early 2018.
