Doing it his way? In this promo video of the latest VW Golf GTI Mk7, the hot hatch cruises in Vegas, before turning into a car park for dirtier action, all done with a certain Frank Sinatra song in the background. Often copied, never equalled – that’s the message by Volkswagen. Perfect song then!
Scheduled for a world debut in Geneva, the Mk7 Golf GTI will be available in two output tunes, a Stage 1 standard 220 PS form as well as a Stage 2 GTI Performance version with 230 PS on call. Both variants will have an identical 350 Nm maximum torque from the EA888 2.0 litre TSI engine.
0-100 km/h is done in 6.4 seconds for the GTI Performance, a tenth faster than the 220 PS car and half a second faster than today’s GTI. I’m liking the idea of a three-door stick shift GTI, although that will never happen in Malaysia.
