Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 coming to U.S. with different badging
Volkswagen’s hot hatch models are making some big headlines this week thanks to the 2011 Worthersee event – so it’s only right that a report like this pops up.
Last month when Volkswagen unveiled the special-edition Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 celebrating the model’s 35th anniversary, it said that the limited-edition of the hot-hatchback will only be available in Europe.
Well, it seems like V-dub has had a change of mind and has decided to bring the GTI Edition 35 to the United States. However, the 35 badging will have to change since the number of years are specific to the European market. In 2012, the GTI will celebrate its 30th birthday in the United States.
In the Euro version, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 is powered by a 2.0-liter TSI 4-cylinder turbo engine, that has been upgraded to produced 235 PS – or 232-hp.
