Volkswagen has just revealed the Golf GTI "Wörthersee 09," a concept car that was named for the GTI meet it debuted at. The first thing you notice is the “Firespark Metallic” finish, painting the 19 inch rims black with the glowing red lip really sets the car off.

The newly designed sport comfort seats with their integrated head restraints are an absolute interior highlight. They excite with innovative cover materials and a fresh color composition. This includes black nappa for the outer surfaces and flash red nappa for the seat side supports, bordered by light “Berry White” leather piping. The seat center panels are made of Hexagon; one feature of this high-tech material, which is so pleasant to the touch: its exceptional breathing proper ties.

GTI drivers in particular know that form follows function. The “Wörthersee 09” Edition not only pleases with its tasteful style, it was also intensified technically in the direction of performance.

This will be music to the ears of genuine GTI fans.

When it comes to the turbo engine, the GTI “Wörthersee 09” relies on the new 2.0-liter TSI with 155 kW / 210 PS. This gives the concept car a top speed of 238 km/h and 6.9 second acceleration to 100 km/h.
