Paris: Volkswagen Golf GTI Concept’s suspension was lowered with straps

The Volkswagen Golf GTI Concept which was unveiled in Paris was held together by straps which helped the model get a lower ride height.

The guys at vau-max.de have managed to take some photos of the Volkswagen GTI Concept at the Paris Motor Show which reveal some straps used to pull the springs down for a lower ride height. It’s usual for concept cars to be more about show and less about go at automotive events but Volkswagen wasn’t too careful in lowering the ride height of the Golf GTI Concept.

The all-new Volkswagen Golf GTI will get two power levels in stage one and stage two, both of them being powered by the 2.0 liter direct injected turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with Stage 1 producing 217 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.6 seconds and providing it with a top speed of 152 mph, while in Stage 2 the unit will develop 226 HP and it will allow the hot hatch to spring from 0 to 62 mph in 6.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 155 mph. Both versions of the new Golf GTI will get stop/start system and six-speed dual clutch transmission as standard. Additional details on the new Golf GTI will be announced close to its launch in early 2013.
