Volkswagen to release Golf GTI Adidas
30th September, 2010
Volkswagen is about to release the most exclusive Golf GTI of the
current generation in Australia. The Golf GTI Adidas follows in the mould of the Golf Pirelli GTI.
The new Golf GTI Adidas can be recognised by a special alloy wheel design. In this case, it is the 18-inch
“Serron” wheel, named after a Finnish race course. The wheel exhibits five machine-polished U-shaped dual spokes;
the areas between the spokes are painted in high-sheen black.
In addition, the Golf GTI Adidas is identified on its exterior by standard bi-xenon headlights with dynamic
cornering lights and dark tinted tail light clusters with LED technology. Special 'Adidas' badges on the
B-pillars also identify this car as a special model.
Inside, the black-red sport seat system was customised in the joint venture with Adidas. Its inner seat panels
consist of fabric in GTI-adidas design and sport the matching logo as well; lateral seat supports are upholstered
in Vienna leather; interior designers executed the double cap seam of the head restraints in “Flash Red”.
On the backs of the front seats, which are heated and height-adjustable, there are storage pockets for stowing
smaller items and magazines, while the folding backrest of the rear seats is equipped with a combined centre
armrest and pass-through to the boot space.
Colour-contrasting decorative door inlays (front), special interior accents in aluminium, fabric floor mats
with decorative borders and a gearshift grip in the golf ball design of the first generation GTI, complete the
customised features of the GTI Adidas. Of course, this GTI Adidas also offers standard features such as a RCD 510
audio system, Media Device Interface (MDI) and standard Bluetooth Phone Connectivity.
In the selection of exterior paints offered on this exclusive model, Volkswagen returns to the roots of GTI
history: white and red. Customers can choose from the GTI-specific hues “Candy White” and “Tornado Red”.
Like all Golf GTIs, the Golf GTI Adidas also offers the sport chassis which delivers impressive performance
with an electronic transverse differential lock (XDL) and GTI-specific ESP tuning. The Golf GTI Adidas comes
with a 155 kW turbo engine and yet consumes only 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres. It is a GTI that outputs audible
dynamics through its dual tailpipe exhaust system (one tailpipe each, left and right). It is a GTI that transfers
the tradition of the original version to the future.
This special edition Golf GTI Adidas 5-door 6-speed DSG is available in Australia from $45,990 excluding dealer
delivery fees and the various statutory charges.
