Volkswagen unleashes Golf GTI Edition 35

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the legendary GTI brand, launched back in 1976. To celebrate the event, Volkswagen will offer for sale an exclusive version of the current Golf GTI model, dubbed Edition 35.

GTI - an iconic name, synonym with elegant, discrete performance. In June 1976, Volkswagen was launching a slightly doped version under the Golf portfolio, that was to receive the GTI badge. Neither the visual enhancements, nor the technical package were impressive, not even judging by that period. But the image of the model, with its athletic, robust and minimal design created by Giugiaro, transformed it into the first hot hatch that highly appealed to the big public.
