Volkswagen unveils two new versions of the Golf GTI: one hardcore, one sporty –

Audi isn’t the only company set to bring multiple variants of its new models at the upcoming Worthersee Tour, held in Austria, as Volkswagen has also announced two special models, based on its popular Golf GTI.

The first is the result of a partnership between the company and German apparel giant Adidas. The Golf GTI Adidas (pictured above) boasts just cosmetic improvements like 18-inch alloy wheels, LED rear lights, sports seats and, of course, Adidas-inspired trim. Only 4410 such models will be made available in Germany and a few other European coutries.

For those with a hunger for a more hardcore GTI, but not interested in the Golf R, the German carmaker prepared the Golf GTI Excessive concept. While power levels are the same, a more aggressive body kit, 19-inch wheels, a revised suspension plus upgraded brakes and exhaust systems were added.

Sadly the GTI Excessive is just a show car, for now. In the future the company might offer the parts used on the Excessive as options for the Golf GTI, but it’s not written in stone, as of yet.
