Volkswagen has just launched a new Mark 8 version of the fantastic Golf GTI Clubsport - a hugely popular limited-edition model seen the previous generation Golf. It takes the classic GTI formula and turns it up to 11, with a host of upgrades designed to make the car both faster around a track and sharper and more enjoyable to drive for the real enthusiast. First of the improvements is to the engine, which is the same 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine but uprated from 242 bhp in the standard car to 296 bhp, adding 54 bhp (over 20%) to the power level reducing the 0-60 time and making the car feel significantly faster, on a par with the mighty Golf R. This is linked to a standard DSG automatic gearbox (no manual is available). A full electromechanical front differential replaces the XDS electric system and its settings can be adjusted via the car's driving dynamics system to suit the drivers needs. The suspension is comprehensively reworked, with new wheel mounts and spring configurations to make the car feel more responsive, and the Dynamic Chassis Control system (DCC) now has a full 15 settings to allow more precise fine tuning. Brakes are upgraded with perforated discs and twin piston calipers, and track focused Michelin Pilot sport Cup tyres can be specified. To communicate this extra performance to the outside world a new redesigned front bumper is fitted with lip spoiler, matt black aero fins and widened intakes, ditching the standard GTI's LED lower running lights in favour of a more aggressive look. side skirts are fitted and a new rear spoiler, and a selection of 18" and 1923 lightweight alloy wheels are available. Despite the price increase of around £3500 over the regular GTI, the Clubsport's desirability means significantly better residual values, so monthly leasing prices should be very competitive.
