The new Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR will arrive in Ireland in March priced from €47,495.

Just 20 examples of this new high performance model will be available to Irish customers. The new Golf GTI TCR was derived from the racing car of the same name – the two-time overall winner of the international TCR racing series.

The Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR has 290 PS and is fitted with a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG). 0 to 100kmh is 5.6 seconds, while the maximum speed is 250 km/h.

It will be available as a 3-door or 5-door and features technology such as Front Assist, Active Info Display and LED headlights. The standard equipment includes a front-axle differential lock, perforated brake discs, driving profile selection, premium front sport seats with a new microfibre/fabric design, seat belts with red edging plus an exclusive sports steering wheel. As with the racing series, its leather is specially imprinted (perforated leather) at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions as well as with a red mark at 12 o’clock.

The new Golf GTI TCR is also distinguished by the standard 18-inch Belvedere forged wheels (or 18-inch Milton Keynes alloy wheels, as an alternative), black exterior mirror caps, sill extensions, front splitter, TCR roof spoiler and a diffuser at the rear.

The Golf GTI TCR can be further customised with optional equipment such as a new honeycomb decor foil for the side sections, exterior mirror caps in carbon look, a black painted roof and two wheel packages to choose from.

In addition to the Vmax increase from 250 to 260 km/h, the first wheel package (€2,895) includes 19-inch Reifnitz wheels, the adaptive chassis control DCC, including lowering by 20 mm compared to the standard running gear (five millimetres less as compared to the GTI running gear) and a special, sporty tuning of the front and rear axle shock absorbers.

The second wheel package costs (€3,895) is tailored especially for the racetrack with 19-inch Pretoria rims with semi-slicks.

Deliveries are expected to commence in March.
