Following on from the launch of the limited edition Golf GT TSI in May 2007, Volkswagen has released the Golf GT Sport model.
The new ‘Sport’ model will be a permanent addition to the Golf range and according to Volkswagen offers new technology, superior road performance and low fuel consumption. The Golf GT Sport is available with a choice of either a petrol or diesel powerplant. (Note - Normal Golf GT pictured not the Sport variant)
The Golf GT Sport 2.0 TDI makes use of Volkswagen’s most powerful four-cylinder TDI engine with an output of 125kW at 4200 rpm and peak torque of 350Nm. Equipped with advanced piezo operated direct injection it powers the Golf GT Sport from 0 to 100km/h in just 8.2 seconds.
The Golf GT Sport TSI featues the compact 1.4 litre direct-injection twin-charger engine from the regular GT. This dynamic little four-pot develops 125kW and 240Nm, with maximum torque available from a low 1750rpm.
The Golf GT Sport features sports suspension, exclusive 17 inch alloy wheels "BBS ClassiXs", 225 tyres, 16 inch brakes, distinctive bumper and radiator grille design, twin tailpipes, sports seats and a sports steering wheel.
