For fans of the Golf vehicle lineups from the German automaker, Volkswagen, there is good news for them. The company has officially taken the veil off a GTD variant for its Golf vehicle lineups. For those who wonder, the GTD stands for Gran Turismo Diesel. This car finally comes to life after being spied on camera not so long ago. The car will most likely end up as a high performance model of the Golf although it is a wagon.
When compared to the standard variant of the VW Golf, the GTD is instantly recognizable, thanks to its honeycomb radiator front grille, bi-xenon headlamps, smoked taillights, dual chrome exhaust pipes, flared sills, front and rear GTD style bumpers, black roof rails, lowered suspensions and also Curitiba 17-inch alloy wheels. Nogaro 18-inch alloy wheels are available, too, for those who do not mind to spend extra cash.
Stepping into the cabin of the vehicle, owners of the vehicle will be welcomed by stainless steel pedal caps, shift lever styled like a golf ball, checkered black decorative panels and inserts, black headliner and pillar trims, sport seats wrapped in the Clark tartan material, steering wheel with aluminum accent and multiple functions, and also illuminated door sills.
Under the hood, the VW Golf GTD hides a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine which is capable of spitting out 184 hp and 380 Nm of power and torque, respectively.
The car is slated for debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show that will open its doors this oncoming March. Customers in Germany can already start booking their example for 31,975 Euros. Yet, for an additional sum of 965 Euros, they will also be eligible for the Sports and Design package. This will give them tinted windows, numerous driving modes, red brake calipers and Nogaro 18-inch wheels.
