At the end of this February we discovered the new Golf GTI Mk8 by Volkswagen.This elegant car has 241 horsepower thanks to its 2.0-liter gasoline engine. If you like hot hatches, but don’t want to opt for the R models, which have 4-wheel drive. The Golf GTI Mk8 will be a more robust option perfect for you.
And hopefully this time it will be a permanent version of the GTI family!
2021 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 8 GTI TCR SPIED TESTING ON THE NÜRBURGRING
In this video, with filtered shots of the road test done by Volkswagen during the Industry Pool. We can see the new robust Golf GTI Mk8 model rolling around the track. And we notice its good traction, but also that it barely makes any noise (of course we are also compared to the Porsche that appears for a few moments in the recording)
Analysis of the images filtered in January of the VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 8 GTI TCR
We can see how the new Golfs did not have the X-shaped fog lights, optional on the normal GTI, GTD and GTE.
As for the bumper, it looks more aggressive than the standard GTI, which can give more aerodynamics. Although it may lack the red accents …
If we observe well, we can realize that this new model can be more thought for road.
You can see at first sight that the rear wing is thicker. We also see a diffuser flanked by the tips of the exhaust gases that seem a little larger than those of the normal GTI.
(We must also take into account that, although the car has no camouflage, probably because it was missing some pieces)
If we follow the filtered images, surely the TCR version will reach 299 horsepower to match the Seat Cupra Leon.
And in the same way we suppose that it will happen with the torsion.
- Power: 241 hp
- Engine: TSI 2.0-liter gasoline
- Wheels: 17 inch Richmond design size
- Aerodynamic coefficient: reduced from 0.3 to 0.275
- Maximum speed: 250 km/h (155 m/h)
That if, you do not know if Volkswagen will sell this car with automatic or manual gearbox. Let’s hope it’s just a DSG thing
In the next few months we will get out of the way, and of course, the R model will be in our hands by the end of the year. Hopefully later on we will find a 400 hp model, which is said to be soon.
