GoAuto brings word the Volkswagen Golf GTI â€˜Edition 35â€™ deliveries will commence in Australia from September. A limited number of 200 will be available locally in 5-door spec only and will carry a $3000 premium over regular GTI pricing. The list price for the â€˜Edition 35â€™ will be $43,490 ($45,990 for 6-speed DSG).
For the extra coin you get a 173kW/300Nm 2.0 litre EA113 engine which has been sourced and de-tuned from the Golf R. That’s an 18kW/20Nm increase over the EA888 engine in the standard GTI. You’ll also get model specific designation, trim details and 18″ alloy wheels to set you apart from the GTI crowd.
Volkswagen claim the car will reach 100km/h in 6.6 seconds and will sip premium unleaded at the rate of
8.0l 8.2l/100km (DSG) or 8.1l 8.3l/100km (manual).
We’ll bring you the official Volkswagen Australia press release as soon as its been made available.
