The 2013 Volkswagen Golf VII GTD has been filmed recently at a dealership wearing a Carbon Steel Grey paint scheme.
The most powerful diesel Golf VII comes fitted with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that can generate 181 hp (135 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque. The model can achieve the speed of 0-62 mph (0-100 kmph) in 7.5 seconds but the video gives a different and a better picture. In the video, the run is completed by the model in just 7.17 seconds (with room for improvement). The car also comes with an increased top speed of 143 mph (230 kmph) as compared to Golf VI GTD’s 138 mph (222 kmph).
When compared with the Golf VII GTI, the GTD model doesn’t have the red trim on the front grille and in the headlights, and the alloys come with a slightly different design. The GTD model is also more economical as it can return 56 mpg US (67.3 mpg UK or 4.1 liters / 100 km) whereas the GTI will is able to give fuel economy of just 39.2 mpg US (47 mpg UK or 6.0 liters / 100 km).
The R version would be topping the Volkswagen Golf VII lineup which is alleged to have output somewhere in the range of 300 hp (224 kW).
