To mark the annual Wörthersee Show in Austria, has honed the to create a new concept.
The aptly named Golf GTI Excessive is formed from a series of small but effective modifications to the vehicle's running gear to create a sharper, more focused iteration of the GTI.
This comes as a result of firmer springs and dampers and a wider track, requiring the addition of a set of wheelarch extensions each measuring just over an inch. Uprated 14.5 inch diameter brake discs (12.2 ins rear) are fitted with new 19-inch flow-formed BBS motorsport-derived alloy wheels complete with a 1.4-inch offset fitted with 235/35 ZR19 track-orientated tyres.
The 2.0-liter TSI engine is left unchanged, however, the addition of a free-flowing and marginally lighter exhaust system raises power from 207Bhp to 211 while torque rises from 206 to 211 lb.- ft. between 1,700 and 5,200 rpm.
Aesthetic changes to the GTI Excessive include the addition of a deep front splitter and a pair of revised airdams either side of the front grille. A set of sill extensions finished in gloss black are joined by a new rear diffuser framed by a set of titanium-tipped exhaust pipes and a redesigned wing mounted above the rear window. Finally, a set of LED rear lights, now standard equipment on all new examples of the Golf GTI, complete the changes.
Inside, the GTI Excessive a set of redesigned bucket seats with integrated headrests finished in black and red are fitted along with brushed aluminum and gloss black trim.
Should there be an enthusiastic reaction to the concept at Wörthersee, the GTI Excessive may inspire an accessories pack which could be retrofitted to the MkVI Golf GTI.
