VW Golf GTI VII: Coming with optional track pack


Street word has it that the new VW Golf GTI will come with an optional track pack.

Not only will the new MkVII Golf GTI be lighter and more powerful than the outgoing MkVI, it looks set to benefit from a new track pack as well. The factory-fitted pack will, among other upgrades, reportedly add a boost to power and replace the brake-based XDS electronic differential with a proper limited-slip diff.

The information was reported by Car and Driver, which also claims the new MkVII Golf GTI will go on sale in Europe next summer but won’t reach U.S. shores until early 2014.
