Apprentice-Built Volkswagen Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition Packs 375-HP
Volkswagen let the kids have some fun at this year's Worthersee festival. Inspired by the 40th anniversary of the Golf, VW apprentices put together their very own custom Golf GTI that festival fans are sure to love. Paying homage to VW's hometown, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition just debuted packing 375 hp under its hood.
The VW Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition was hand-built by Volkswagen apprentices between the ages of 18 and 23 over the past nine months. The Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition was built strictly to the specifications of VW's next great engineers. The kids started out with a standard Golf GTI, and then dropped the Golf R's 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 into the engine bay. Modifications like a carbon air box, and a hand-welded active steel exhaust system push output up to 375-hp.
With the engine taken care of, the VW apprentices turned to the exterior. The Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition got a hand-painted red and black finish, with stripes down the hood, and side stripes featuring Wolfsburg landmarks in them. The team also made some custom parts for their GTI, including a new front bumper, and a custom rear spoiler. The red and black theme carries over into the Golf GTI Wolfsburg's interior, which features red trim, Recaro buckets, a new PlayStation, and a bumping sound system.
