Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR revealed with 286bhp

Volkswagen has peeled the covers off its road-racing Golf GTI TCR concept at Worthersee, and it's now been confirmed it's headed for production. While it may be referred to as a concept, expect the final product to be nearly identical to what is seen here. The Golf GTI TCR has a en electronically-limited top speed of 155 miles per hour, but it can be increased to 164 miles per hour by removing the electronic top-speed limiter. Also, it is likely there the TCR will have no production cap - VW will continue to produce it as the top-spec GTI variant - before the vehicle gets replaced by a new-gen model, which is speculated to launch by 2019 end. The major highlight is the powertrain as the concept uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 290 PS and 370 Nm of peak torque from as low as 1,600 rpm.

"Power still goes through the front wheels, via a seven-speed DSG gearbox, and buyers wanting a more dynamic edge will be able to opt for a sports chassis package that includes adaptive damping and 19-inch alloys (the standard auto will have 18" rims). It sticks to its front-wheel-drive roots unlike the range-topping Golf R. Volkswagen hasn't provided a 0-100 km/h time but the ingredients certainly suggest it will have a standard GTI beat. It will run on 18-inch "Belvedere" forged wheels (19-inch alloy wheels will also be available as an option).
