World Premiere at Worthersee - The New Volkswagen up! GTI and Other Goodies
|   Tuesday, July 18, 2017
About 200,000 fans once again made a pilgrimage to Lake Worthersee for a unique festival. Volkswagen was there with more car surprises like the new up! GTI - similar to the interior and exterior dimensions of the original GTI.

This model will expand Volkswagen’s product range from the beginning of 2018, continuing the doctrine of lightweight, uncomplicated and compact sports car. It is propelled by a Turbo Injector (TSI) engine that supplies a torque of 200 Nm.


On a comparative analysis, the performance characteristics are similar to those on the Golf GTI I catapulted into the modern era. Weight: 997 kg. Maximum speed: 197 km/h. 0 to 100 km/h: 8.8 seconds. The newer classic and typical GTI Colors can be found- unique colors, Red Tornado, and Pure White, in addition to Dark Silver Metallic, Black Pearl, and - as a new shade of GTI - Costa Azul (blue). This very powerful model can be identified by the typical GTI markings. At the front, for example, the red side band in the honeycomb radiator grille and embedded above the GTI logo. On the sides, the double side strips are present over the lateral side slits.

On this chapter, the new up! is inspired directly from the original GTI. The 17-inch alloy wheels have also been redesigned. They look particularly lively passes because the model has a sporty running train that is 15 mm lower.

GTI features characterize can be found in the back too. They include, once again, a red stripe and a larger roof spoiler, which offers a greater pushing force on the rear axle and therefore improved handling characteristics. Inside, the typical features include the sporty leather steering wheel, a sports gearshift, and the legendary “Clark” model of seat covers.

Regarding the details of the GTE Golf Performance concept, one thing is clear: GTE3 has always supported its durability and dynamic handling. This is also reflected in the new Worthersee concept car. While the classic GTI and semi-electric GTE are based on a similar concept, propulsion systems differ, and on GTE, all the GTI red marks are blue. With the new prototype of the performance concept Golf GTE, Volkswagen is now presenting an idea of how the Golf GTE, which can reach speeds of 50 km/h in electric mode can be further improved.

Outwardly, the GTE Golf performance concept is painted in electric white, the superlative pearl effect draws admiring glimpses with a black ceiling, blue silhouette elements, black mirrors, deflector elements on the front-painted glossy black, side-sills with the same glossy color, and 19-inch Pretoria rims with blue and black.

To cope with the high power, Volkswagen offers 17-inch brakes (perforated discs, “GTE blue” calipers), sport tires, and wheel spacers. At the rear, features such as exhaust pipes, the Golf GTI air diffuser and the overhead rear spoiler of the legendary Golf GTI Clubsport are defining for the GTE Performance version.

Inside, details such as leather sports seats and the “Alcantara” colorful steering wheel with a blue mark at 12 o'clock will emphasize the powerful concept car, which will be presented at the GTI Festival in the Austrian village of Reifnitz.
