VW have been working on the ultimate Golf for track use and they’ve come out with something even faster. With more power and better aero, the new car is sure to set blazing lap times. Engine produce 350 hp, 20 more than last year.
“You cannot afford to rest on your laurels in motorsport, and we want to continue to offer our customers a competitive car for their commitments around the world,” says Sven Smeets, director of Volkswagen Motorsports.
“For this reason, we have systematically further developed the Golf GTI TCR for the 2017 season,” says Smeets. “The focus of this further development was on the car’s aerodynamics.”
The main aero improvement this year were made to the wheel arches, which improve downforce while reducing drag. The new version, with its many improvements and €90,000 price tag, should be an even greater success.
