Volkswagen is marking the 45th birthday of the Golf GTI with an anniversary model: The Golf GTI Clubsport 45.
At the front, the special edition model gets the IQ.Light LED matrix head lights, along with the red trim strip that is included on all GTIs.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 45 offers increased exclusivity thanks to a black roof. This is also paired to a matching black spoiler. The new contrast pieces pay homage to the black-framed rear window of the first Golf GTI.
All Clubsport 45s will also come with the Race Package as standard.
This equipment upgrade delivers 19-inch Scottsdale alloy wheels in a high-gloss black finish, and a narrow accent pinstripe detail in Tornado Red.
Also included as part of the Race package is a sports exhaust system. The 250km/h top speed limiter has also been removed.
The interior of the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport also showcases classic GTI insignia, such as on the backrests of the front premium sport seats. A “45” badge also rests on the bottom of the centre spoke of the multi-function sport steering wheel.
Lettering on the side sill panel and the “45” badges added to the lettering on the boot lid finish off the car.
