Volkswagen presented the renewed Golf GTI TCR. The race car features improved aerodynamics thanks to its new front bumper with larger air intakes, its wider fenders, its new rear diffuser and its new rear spoiler.
It is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo petrol engine which delivers 350 hp, 20 more than last year, combined with a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddles on the steering wheel.
The race car last year got 17 wins and two championships. According to Volkswagen Motorsport, the Golf GTI TCR can participate in the ADAC TCR championship in Germany, in the TCR of Asia, TCR of Middle East and TCR of Scandinavia. The cost of the car is €90,000 euros, without taxes, with Volkswagen planing to sell close to 50 units.
