2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR 290PS Redesign, Release Date, Price, & Spy Shots – Adhering to the Clubsport models that manufactured headlines a handful of years earlier, Volkswagen is now completely ready to launch one more special edition of the Golf GTI, wearing the TCR nameplate.
Released for the GTI getting together with at Worthersee, on May 9, the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR is generally the street-legal version of the 350PS (345hp / 257kW) TCR racer. It provides 290PS (286hp / 213kW) and 370Nm (273lb-ft) of torque available on touch, channeled to the front wheels by means of a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission.
No -100km/h (-62mph) runtime has become released, however, but top speed is limited at 250km/h (155mph) and might be brought up to 264km/h (164mph) by optionally eliminating the electronic Vmax limiter.
By comparison, the hotter Volkswagen Golf R has 20PS (20hp / 15kW) and 30Nm (22lb-ft) of torque far more compressed from its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Naught to 100km/h (-62 mph) will take 4.6 seconds with the R, so we are possibly looking at 4.7-4.8sec for the Golf GTI TCR.
“The speediest Golf GTI“, as called to by Volkswagen, will likely be in near-manufacturing develop at the automotive celebration that commences next full week in Germany. However, consumers will not have to hold out that long to obtain it, as the new model will likely be launched at the end of the year. In the teaser graphics introduced by Volkswagen, which come with the release, we can easily see a meaner-looking rear end, with a far more vigorously-fashioned diffuser. Also obvious are the front fascia, spherical dual exhaust plumbing, stickers and a set of 5-dual spoke wheels.
