Volkswagen is testing the waters with its new Golf GTI Excessive study that was revealed today at this year's edition of the annual GTI-Meet at Wörthersee.
Making its debut alongside the limited production Golf GTI Adidas special (see here), the GTI Excessive features a series of motorsport-inspired add-on parts that the German firm says could make it into the catalogue of Volkswagen Original Accessories if there's enough interest from the public.
Finished in the same fire-red "Firespark Metallic" as last year's Golf GTI Wörthersee 09, the GTI Excessive gets a new bodykit trimmed in high-gloss black piano paint. The add-on parts include a front splitter beneath the front apron, side sills and rear diffuser and splitter, and flared wheel wells that add 30mm per side.
The widened wheel arches house new 19-inch BBS lightweight rims finished in a black shade fitted in tires size 235/35 ZR19. Volkswagen also equipped the show car with new brake callipers featuring the "GTI / Wörthersee 2010" logos.
Interior upgrades include decorative brushed aluminium trim and glossy black painted frames for the vent nozzles, framed floor mats in red piping. and the modified sport comfort seats with integrated head restraints that feature black Nappa for the outer areas and flash-red Nappa for the lateral seat supports.
In terms of performance, the only upgrade includes a new exhaust system that adds an extra 4-horsepower bumping output to 214HP and 286Nm.
