Upcoming VW Golf GTI Cup (TCR) To Pack 286 HP (213 kW) Says Report
The regular Golf GTI will return with its familiar 2.0-litre turbo four now making 232 hp (173 kW) and will come with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed DSG twin-clutch auto as an option.
Next in line is the GTI Cup* which has been inspired by the current GTI TCR derivative and will be the sportiest Golf GTI by a clear margin. Expect bigger wheels, bigger brakes, wilder aero, lower ride height plus a differential lock to boost front-wheel-drive traction. CAR claim the output of the GTI Cup will be 286 hp (213 k) and 370 Nm of torque.
The all-new Golf R will reportedly push out 328 hp (245 kW) from the turbocharged 2.0-litre four with an expected 100 km/h sprint time of 4.3 seconds thanks to all four wheels being driven.
