UK to welcome its first right-hand-drive Golf GTIs in a week or two away. its first right-hand-drive Golf GTIs to the UK, Volkswagen has ploughed ahead with the launch of the more powerful front-drive variant – the long-awaited GTI Clubsport. As everyone predicted an aeon ago, the new model gets a 300hp output and adds unique chassis geometry and extra aero pieces. No less significantly, it’ll be sold in unlimited numbers, with VW expecting the Clubsport to account for at least 10 per cent of GTI sales. Like all of the brand’s better stuff these days, it’s been extensively tested by Benny Leuchter, the ‘Ring maestro behind the old Clubsport S’s lap record. So we’ve high hopes.

Just like on the regular GTI, the Clubsport’s running gear (adaptive suspension, steering and so-on) is managed by something VW calls the ‘Vehicle Dynamics Manager’. For the Clubsport it incorporates the clever ‘VAQ’ locking front diff. So while there are no hardware changes, it ought to be able to react faster.

Spot a Clubsport by its slightly different front bumper that does without those, erm, interesting daytime-running lights, new spoiler, diffuser, side-skirts and twin ovular exhaust pipes.

No word on prices yet. A normal GTI with the DSG gearbox is around £35,000.

Obviously new Clubsport has a much broader focus than that limited-run Mk7 special, but works driver Leuchter and vehicle dynamics boss Karsten Schebsdat assured PH via a digital conference that the latest model is intended to strike a class-leading compromise between the demands of road and track. The 2.0-litre EA888 evo4 engine, at least, is familiar in its 300hp and 295lb ft of torque guise, with the latter available from 1,800rpm to 5,200rpm and the former encountered at 5,000rpm. The team also highlighted a more aggressively tuned VAQ system, and a shorter ratio and quicker-shifting DSG seven-speed auto in the powertrain’s transformation to Clubsport level.

Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, which comes wrapped around a 19-inch forged aluminium wheels. Most buyers are expected to opt for the car’s less extreme boots, with the Clubsport’s 18- and 19-inch rims offered with Bridgestone Potenzas S005s, Goodyear Eagle F1s Super Sports or Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3s, depending on the market. Unsurprisingly, the UK is expected to be second only to Germany in volume, and the Clubsport is likely to account for a higher mix of sales in Britain than elsewhere. Just don’t expect to see any here before next year 2021.

Oh, and there’s a new drive mode. The Clubsport’s ‘Special’ mode is tailored to the “very specific” idiosyncrasies of the Nürburgring, where much of the development work was done. It keeps the suspension soft, because the ‘Ring is bumpy as, but ramps the engine, gearbox, steering and so-on up to the max. Sounds like it might work pretty well on your average British B-road…
