Two Special-Edition Volkswagen Golf GTIs Headed to Worthersee Tour

Next week, Volkswagen will unveil two special-edition Golf GTIs at the annual Wörthersee Tour in Austria.

The first limited-run Volkswagen is the Golf GTI adidas edition. Sporting only cosmetic modifications, this model will run with the adidas fashion brand name and a handful of changes including 18-inch wheels, special interior trim with unique seats, and bi-xenon headlights and LED taillights lifted from the R32-replacing Golf R. Just 4410 examples will be produced, all of which will go on sale in Europe this July.

The second V-dub is called the Golf GTI Excessive edition and, although photos have not yet been released, it will reportedly have more than just a pretty face. Beneath the car, the Excessive model will be wider and receive new springs and shocks, 19-inch alloy wheels with semi-slick tires, and a lightened exhaust system. Further enhancements include new brake rotors and pads along with a full bodykit.

The Excessive is still just a concept and would be slotted between the GTI and R models should it make the production Golf lineup. Certain Excessive components, including the springs and brakes, could also potentially make it to dealer accessory departments as obtainable add-ons for standard GTIs.

Next week, Wörthersee will not only be home to Volkswagen enthusiasts and the two special-edition GTIs, but to Audi as well. The new R8 GT and some customized A1 hatchbacks will also be on display in the lakeside Austrian town.
