The #VolkswagenGTI #TCR is the ultimate incarnation of the #GolfGTI, and it's also a pretty successful race car. The Golf managed to win titles in the TCR International Series as well as the VLN Endurance Championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. For 2018 it features a facelift to make it bring it more in line with the production Golf GTI. Mechanically, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR remains unchanged. This means that beneath that 40cm wider body than the production model lies the Group's MQB platform, and a 2.0T engine that's shared with the Golf R. The motor makes 257kw and 420nm of torque, and allows this track-only Golf #GTI to sprint from rest to 100kph in 5.2 seconds. Power still goes to the front wheels, but it’s sent through a six-speed sequential gearbox. #TunedAutomotive #SomeShitAboutCars
