40th Anniversary VW Golf GTI 'Carbon Edition' coming?


Rumor has it that a lighter more nimble version of the Mk7 GTI will be available to commemorate the 40th anniversary in 2014.

It will be a limited production and is currently known as the 'Carbon Edition' GTI. Using carbon fiber inside two thin pieces of aluminium allows it to be welded in place. Shaving off a total of 440 pounds it will be used mainly on the roof, hood, and rear floor. The weight reduction model will also be used for both hybrid and electric Golf's. We expect to see the new GTI unveiled later this month.
