Isn’t the Volkswagen Golf Mk7 already out? In Europe, yes, but the new boy has not yet gone on sale on the other side of the Atlantic. As such, VW is giving the Golf Mk6 a last hurrah in the US with two special limited edition GTIs – the Wolfsburg Edition and the Driver’s Edition.
Set to go on sale this quarter, the Wolfsburg Edition is limited to 2,000 units, with the six-speed manual version going for US$25,095 (RM77,800) and the six-speed DSG version for US$26,195 (RM81,200). This one gets 18-inch Laguna wheels, red stitching on the carpets and a retro golf ball gear knob.
The Driver’s Edition (pictured) is comparatively less exclusive, with 3,000 units available. US$29,695 (RM92,000) is asked for the manual and US$30,795 (RM95,400) for the DSG. Specified with the Sunroof and Navigation package, the car gets the same goodies as the Wolfsburg Edition, plus partial leather seat coverings. It also comes with a bundle comprising a Certificate of Authenticity, hat, parking sign and keychain.
Both come with five doors and a choice of Deep Black, Carbon Steel Gray or Candy White exterior shades. The US-market Golf Mk7 is set to go into production in the first quarter of next year in Puebla, Mexico – click here to read all about the newest Golf and here for a 360-walkaround video of the car.
