Volkswagen Up GTI Revealed

Volkswagen to launch GTI versionSet to debut next week before the gathered enthusiasts at Lake Wörthersee is the Volkswagen Up! GTI. Though the show car is billed as a concept, VW promises a production version to follow early next year.

With a production version confirmed for the near future, the Up GTI will use a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, turbocharged engine with a power output of 113bhp and 147lb ft peak torque. If you have doubts about the car’s power? You should keep in mind that the car weighs just 997kg.

There are numerous visual references to the original, too. The red stripe in the grille, honeycomb mesh pattern, and black lines across the flanks and rear all identify this V-Dub as a GTI. The more modern touches include the sporty 17-inch alloys and lowered suspension.

When the Up! GTI appears on dealer lots next year, it will be readily identifiable as a GTI, too. It has a red stripe across its honeycomb radiator grille, a front splitter, rear wing, 17-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers, and a body that rides 15 mm lower than the standard Up!. To maintain the GTI sound and feel inside, it has been fitted with an actuator to make it sound raucous in the cabin while remaining civilized to those outside the car. There are signature plaid seats, like on the two bigger GTI models, plus air conditioning, a USB connector, a six-speaker sound system, a leather-covered handbrake lever and ambient lighting.
