Volkswagen SA will be bringing in limited numbers of its Golf 7 GTI TCR and thanks to a dealer bulletin, we can confirm more details.
With 213 kW and 380 Nm of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine which is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR is capable of a 0 to 100 kph in 5.6 seconds. South African spec cars will feature a top speed of 264 kph.
When it launches in 2020, the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR will be available in 3 colours: Pure White, Pure Grey and Tornado Red. There'll be just 300 units, which will be individually numbered. The spec appears to be decent too, with a panoramic sunroof, Alcantara sports seats with GTI TCR detailing, dynamic chassis control and park assist as standard. There will also be TCR insignia and side decals. SA-spec cars will be getting the 19-inch Reifnitz alloys.
Volkswagen SA is calling the TCR the most extreme interpretation of the iconic Golf GTI and it's the final celebration of the Golf GTI ahead of the Volkswagen Golf 8 launch towards the end of 2020.
