Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35 Announced

Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35

In 1976 Volkswagen launched the first generation of its famous Golf GTI model. Since then, there have been two anniversary editions, the GTI Anniversary Edition 20 and 30. 2011 marks the 35th anniversary of the model and VW has decided to celebrate it by rolling out this Golf GTI Edition 35. As you probably figured it by now, it comes with 35 hp more than the standard GTI, for a grand total of 235 hp.

Other additions include the restyled front bumper, the branded aluminum door sills, along with several “35” badges. If you order this model, you’ll also get a high-quality metal key ring.

    Um, seem to remember the Golf being released in 1976/77. 1967 was pretty much the Beetle era, wasn’t it? The GTI came (to the US, at least) in 1982. I remember tearing around the mountain roads of the bay area in one when it first came out.

    So maybe the 35th anniversary for the Golf?

  2. Hello.

    The standard Golf Mark I was introduced in May, 1974

    The Volkswagen Golf GTI Mark I was launched on June, 1976. (1976+35=2011)

    These two dates are applicable for the European market version, not the U.S.-spec Rabbit model.
