Volkswagen Up GTI back to the original

Volkswagen Up GTI back to the originalVolkswagen returns with the Up! Back to the roots of the GTI. The first wave with the famous letter combination came on the market 41 years ago. In the years that followed, the Gulf has grown and, as a logical consequence, also heavier and stronger. The Up! GTI comes close to performance, specifications and weight close to the first Golf GTI.

All the typical elements of a GTI are present at the Up! GTI, from the red stripe into the honeycomb grille to the diamond cladding and switching knob inside. A black strip on the flanks of the car, a rear spoiler, 17-inch wheels and various red accents emphasize the sporty character of this Up! In addition, the child is 15 millimeters closer to the asphalt.

No robotized DSG transmission, the Volkswagen Up GTI TSI power source drives the front wheels via a manual six-speed gearbox. With the obligatory golf ball on top of the gear shift, like at the first Golf GTI at the time. Also the diamond pattern and the red line between the light units make the transition.

We expect this Up GTI on the market early in 2018, but will be unveiled next week during the Austrian VW tuning event of the Wörthersee. He is told between us and weighed no real street racer like the Abarth 500 (which also has at least 30 hp more), but rather a smooth ticket, with a sprint of 0 to 100 km / h in 8.8 seconds (versus 9.0 Seconds for the Gulf 1.0 TSI). Nevertheless, the Up GTI enhances its rich qualities with new adjustments for the springs and shock absorbers and a 15mm lowered suspension.
