Volkswagen let a group of its young apprentices loose on the new Golf GTI, and this is the result: the GTI Wolfsburg Edition.

Named for the city that hosts Volkswagen’s global headquarters, the new ‘concept’ is a powered-up special developed for this week’s Worthersee GTI event in Austria.

The result of nine months of spare-time tinkering and tuning, the GTI Wolfsburg picks up some light styling tweaks and a number of key performance enhancements.

Providing power for this extra-hot hatch is an uprated 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine, boosting power from 169 to a much meatier 280kW - eclipsing even the production 221kW Golf R. (Although the Australian model is limited to 'just' 206kW.)

Other modifications include a carbon-fibre air box and a custom-welded stainless steel exhaust setup that comes with the option for the driver to modulate the system’s volume.

The GTI Wolfsburg’s styling pack includes a hand-made spoiler and lip job, red-lined alloy wheels and a unique graphics package that pays homage to local landmarks.

In the cabin, there’s two-tone Recaro seats with the familiar GTI tartan patten, red highlights throughout, and a custom console with ports for an iPhone docking kit, and a 24-inch display in the boot with a Sony PlayStation good to go.
