Unlike some manufacturers that stick a few decals and a badge and call it a limited edition, Volkswagen has done the hard work. The GTI is propelled by the most powerful 2.0-litre engine Volkswagen has ever made.
Power from the 2.0-litre engine has gone from 147kW to 169kW with 300Nm of torque. The extra 22kW gives a 0-100km/h time of 6.6 seconds, but that’s just the start.
New seats, extra features, special edition wheels, high-performance tyres, body coloured bumpers and side skirts and a range of other features clearly make the Pirelli a worthy special edition.
