Press Release:

More than 25 years ago VW introduced the first “pocket rocket” and started a niche market that is now a style statement for many car enthusiasts. The GTI is back and better than ever – more sophisticated – recapturing the essence of the original – a quick, aggressive 3 door with genuine sporty character. We wanted to build a car that let the best of the GTI and the best of the aftermarket kick asphalt!

The H&R Project GTI has something for all. It is subtle, but different. The tone on tone paint difference is not always noticeable, but the power and handling definitely is! The new GTI has an automatic built-in market. The young car guys who built GTI’s 25 years ago can’t wait to get their hands on this new car. The H&R GTI is the perfect cure for a mid-life crisis. Who needs a Ferrari to relive their youth – the H&R GTI has it all!
