Volkswagen Golf GTI VII concept leaked

These images showing the GTI Concept version of Volkswagen’s brand new Golf VII have sploshed out onto the internet.

Power comes from the company’s 2.0-litre four cylinder turbocharged engine, developing 220 hp or 230 hp when specified with the performance package, while torque rises to 350 Nm – 70 Nm up on the outgoing model. The extra power combined with the car’s lighter construction results in a 0-100 km/h time of 6.6 seconds and 246 km/h top speed (performance package: 6.5s and 250 km/h). Fuel consumption is also improved, with the 2013 GTI needing just 6.6 litres every 100 kilometres – a 1.3 litre reduction compared to its predecessor..

Visually the GTI Concept wears bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs, tinted LED tail-lights, honeycomb grille sections with red trim, 17-inch alloys (optional 18s), a larger roof spoiler and twin tailpipes. Inside, Volkswagen has retained that check trim, reminiscent of the original 1970’s upholstery.

Expect it to make an appearance at the Paris Motor Show, from September 29 to October 14.
