The new Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR is now available to order in the U.K.

Prices will start from £34,135 on the road.

The Golf GTI TCR is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in 5.6 seconds. If you order it with the £2,000 option pack you will get 19 inch Reifnitz alloy wheels, lowered suspension (by 20 mm) with Dynamic Chassis Control and the top speed restriction removed (this car can reach a top speed of 164 mph).

Geraldine Ingham, Head of Marketing at Volkswagen UK, said:

“The arrival of any new Golf GTI is always a big moment but, with the debut of this exclusive and track-inspired car, I think we are seeing the debut of a future GTI icon. The GTI TCR’s 290 PS front-wheel drive set-up and stunning looks, along with the established quality, reliability and engineering excellence that Volkswagen brings to all of its cars, promise to make this hot hatch a ‘must-have’ for discerning buyers.”
