Following Volkswagen's 30th anniversary edition GTi, the 35th anniversary was celebrated with the GTi Edition 35. Its engine was an updated version of the Mk5 GTi engine (also used in the Mk6 Golf R), a two litre turbocharged engine with 232bhp (24bhp more than the standard GTi) and acceleration from 0-62mph is in 6.6 seconds. A range of cosmetic upgrades and extra standard equipment were fitted, and it also got a unique lower front fascia and Recaro sport seats.
This lovely Japanese imported example is presented in grey with grey cloth interior and comes with electric windows, cruise control, Recaro sports seats, special trim, and air conditioning with climate control. Its supercharged two litre engine is mated to a six speed DSG gearbox. The bumpers and sills are reprofiled, there are a pair of discrete chrome 35 badges on each wing, 35 badges on the headrests, red-edged seatbelts and the legendary Golf ball gearknob is back. Like the Golf R, the Edition 35 feels and sounds angrier, more urgent and noticeably less civilised than a normal GTi. More like an old-school hot hatch, in fact. Great performance and handling and rare being the Edition 35, this is one ‘hot hatch’ that pleads to be enjoyed!
