Volkswagen Golf GTI V50
Volkswagen Golf GTI is one of the famous model from Volkswagen. For me, Golf GTI is one of my favourite model. Golf GTI also is become one of my friend wishlist. As the world is getting ready to welcome the sixth-generation of Golf GTI, our neighbour, Singapore have been singled to receive a souped up version of their Mark V Volkswagen GTI dubbed GTI V50.
The fifth-generation GTI V50 equipped with a 6-speed DSG, a new sport exhaust system and a Stage 1 ECU tuning that add 36 more horsepower and an extra 102Nm of torque for a total output of 246Hp and 382Nm of peak torque.Volkswagen claims that the 0-100 run is now a 5.6 seconds affair, which takes more than a second off the standard GTI which is 6.9 seconds.Top speed figures for this upgraded version of Golf GTI is 261km/h.The standard Golf GTI only reach 233 km/h.
For the exterior, upgrades include the larger brake discs and callipers derived from the Golf R32, the 18-inch alloy wheels shod in 225/40 R18 Pirelli P-Zero tires, a Volkswagen Performance body kit, white turn signals as well as blue-tinted glass.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI V50 will be a very limited production run available only in Singapore!
It’s covered by Volkswagen’s three-year warranty. Volkswagen hasn’t listed any prices yet, but expect the V50 to be priced more than the stock GTI.
