Previewed – Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance image

Volkswagen is offering us a preview of the upcoming Golf GTI Performance one-off vehicle, which will be unveiled on Thursday, at the Worthersee 2015 meeting.

The German based automaker Volkswagen is getting ready to officially pull the wraps off the new Golf GTI Performance, during the 2015 Worthersee. The model in question will be unveiled at the event and this will be joining the Golf GTI Clubsport Concept, as they are different vehicles. The carmaker says that the Golf GTI Performance is also a unique ride which has been transformed by 13 apprentices who have used the 3-door variant, have added a two-tone paint with graphics, new wheels, a revised body kit and that’s about all.

“The four young women and nine men are training in technical vocations with Volkswagen and group company Sitech Sitztechnik. The 17 to 25-year-olds were selected as team members on the basis of their outstanding performance. The official program was completed by a presentation to members of the Board of Management and the 13 young people can now continue with the voluntary part of their program by presenting their Golf GTI on Thursday, May 14 2015, at the Worthersee meeting”, says VW in its press release.

Since the car manufacturer hasn’t released any images with the interior design, we’re not sure what is found over there or if it has been modified under its hood either. We do know that it has received some hardware upgrades from the production version, which is getting the 230 HP (169 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline burner. This is connected to the FWD through a 6-speed manual / 6-speed automatic transmission. More details on the new Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance are limited at this time and will be announced on Thursday.
