VW to Present Two New Special Versions of the Golf GTI at Wörthersee

Volkswagen announced today that it will pull the wraps off two new variants of its latest Golf GTI hot hatch at the Wörthersee GTI meeting in Austria next week: the limited production Adidas Golf GTI and a potential, go-fast looking version called the GTI Excessive Study.

Starting with the Adidas Golf GTI that's pictured here, the limited edition model was created in collaboration with the famous sporting-goods maker Adidas and it follows in the footsteps of the Golf GTI Pirelli special. It will be produced in a limited run of 4,410 copies with sales set to begin in July.

It keeps the standard model's 210HP 2.0-liter TSI engine and front wheel drive layout, adding bespoke touches such as the newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels, specially designed sports seats and trim. It also gets standard bi-xenon headlights and LED taillights.

Volkswagen has yet to release photos of the Golf GTI Excessive Study, but the German automaker said that the one-off prototype will feature a new bodykit inspired from the world of motorsports as well as an upgraded interior.
