Volkswagen Clubsport 45 celebrates the Golf GTi's birthday

The world's favourite hot hatch is 45 years old!

7w ago

Today is a very special day in the life of the Golf GTi because today is the 45th birthday of the iconic hot hatchback. In order to celebrate the occasion, VW has released the Clubsport 45.

Celebrating the "birthday of an icon", the Clubsport 45 packs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder good for producing 296 horsepower. All the power is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed DCT gearbox.

The interior remains pretty much unchanged as most of the attention has been payed to the exterior of the hatchback.

Outside you will find 19-inch gloss black alloys featuring red rims, black roof & spoiler and ‘45’ logos and decals. But that's not all as the Clubsport 45 also has the ‘Race Package’ which gives the hot hatch a fiesty Akrapovic exhaust and no top speed limiter. Yipee!

This very special GTi could be yours for €47,790 as pre-sales will start from March 1.

  • I like it a lot but it’s too expensive I’d rather buy it second hand in 5 years for much cheaper.

  • Too much money for a front wheel drive golf in my opinion. I do love the look and styling though. The previous gen is on my radar for next possible daily.
