VW Commemorates the End of the 2013 GTI With Two Special Editions

To commemorate the end of GTI’s sixth generation, VW will present two special-editions 2013 GTI at the Chicago Auto Show.

The two models are the 2013 GTI Wolfsburg Edition and the 2013 GTI Driver’s Edition, which will come only with the four-door body style and three paint colors: Deep Black, Carbon Steel Gray and Candy White. The Wolfsburg Edition will only have 2,000 units, each fitted with 18-inch Laguna alloy wheels, six-speed manual transmission, red-stitched floor mats and a retro golf ball shifter knob. The price begins at $25,890 and it includes delivery.

The GTI Driver’s Edition will have 3,000 units, and besides the Wolfsburg Edition characteristics, each vehicle will also have partial leather seating surfaces and a special GTI package that includes a keychain, a parking sign and a hat. The price begins at $30,490.

VW announced that the next-generation Golf will be manufactured in Mexico, to be exported to the US, Canada and several other South American countries. The plant is located in Puebla, and will also produce the sporty GTI. Manufacturing cars in Mexico, helps VW reduce not only costs but also delivery time, as it is protected from the currency fluctuations and is closer to the markets in which it sells the new Golf and variants of the GTI.
