Track-Only Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR Gets a Facelift

Those of you who thought the GTI Clubsport S was the most extreme front-wheel-drive Volkswagen Golf have never heard of the GTI TCR, and that's okay.

Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR 2018 received increased downforce, improved cooling of the engine and transmission and a smaller aerodynamic resistance of the body. "This helps us to underline just what a close relationship exists between the production model and the racing version", explained Sven Smeets, the director of Volkswagen Motorsport.

Speaking of performance, the GTI TCR isn't just a regular GTI with a fancy paint job and rear wing; it's a stripped down, track-only customer race auto.

The Golf GTi has proved to be one of the year's most successful touring cars.

The auto which brought Jean-Karl Vernay the 2017 TCR International Series title, the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR, will get a face-lift for the 2018 season with a re-working of the front-end bringing the vehicle to a design more similar to the production model, in order to increase emphasis on the relevance of the cars' road-going counterpart.

The Golf GTi also won the TCR class in the VLN Endurance Championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, finishing ahead of many more powerful cars in the 24-hour race at the same circuit.

The new version of the Golf GTi TCR will be ready for delivery from January.
