Following a set of teaser images, VW says the car is close to production.

Describing the newcomer as the “future top model in the Golf GTI series”, VW says it will be launched in production form at the end of 2018.

.

The TCR pays homage to VW the Golf TCR track car and makers use of a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that will develop 213 kW (between 5 000 and 6 800 r/min) and 370 Nm (from 1 600 to 4 300 r/min), up on the standard GTI’s 169 kW and 350 Nm.

.

All that power is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

A front axle differential lock will become standard.

Volkswagen has not revealed the sprint of the TCR from 0-100km/h, but says it will hit the top speed at 250km/h, but if you think that is not enough, you can increase it to 264km/h by opting to have the electronic limiter removed.
