Australia: 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years Anniversary Model Launched

The famous Volkswagen Golf GTI has recently turned 40, with an extraordinary history on the market, and the carmaker is planning to celebrate the event by launching a special edition in Australia.

The special edition is called the VW Golf GTI 40 Years and will be available in Australia in a limited number of units, with prices to start from $46,990 for the manual and $48,990 for the DSG automatic transmission.

The model stands out from the crowd with a number of interesting goodies, both visually and mechanically. We are dealing here with the one-off 19-inch alloy wheels, along with an overall sporty body styling with a much prominent front intake system and two-piece rear spoiler.

In terms of mechanics, the Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years also features the high-performance organ-wrenching brakes, chassis control, adaptive suspension and the same front-wheel drive for improved traction.

Underneath the hood, the Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years is packing a 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four cylinder, the same one found on the present GTI, developing an exquisite 213 kW and 380 Nm of torque.

As aforementioned, the model can be had with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission, the latter one being already available for order on the hot continent.
