Wolfsburg, 17 May 2007 — The GTI Pirelli is back; a powerful, and very exclusive GTI. is continuing the history of one of the best limited edition models in In May 1983, the “Original Pirelli” on the market. It was based on the first second series Golf

A distinctive identifying feature: designed alloy wheels the “Pirelli P” on their outer A remarkable 10,500 cars of the model were built and within half a year. it was over – a limited edition!

If were an Automobile Hall of for young-timers, the “Pirelli GTI”, as it was by its fans, would have held a place there.

The tire tracks of the young-timer are now extended by the new Golf GTI Pirelli. And with completely new Pirelli tires too. They are around powerful 18-inch wheels in Titanium look. The interior has been upgraded a partial-leather sports seat that has an embedded tire pattern. Instead of the previous 112 PS the new car 230 PS into forward propulsion.

If needed, a 245 km/h top speed is the car’s capabilities. In 6.8 seconds the propels the GTI Pirelli to 100 km/h a standstill.

But it can go even faster: When the GTI is ordered with the optional DSG clutch transmission, the most GTI of all times breaks through the “sound barrier” in 6.6 seconds.

“Power is nothing without says Pirelli. Volkswagen it this way too. Chassis, and ESP combine for a well-balanced safety that can even perform on the North Loop of the Nuremburg track. But things do not really get out until the tires come play.

That is why Pirelli is a new high-performance tire to the project: The generation of P-Zero tires. The mixture and tread pattern of the P-Zero were designed to handling, braking, ride and aquaplaning properties.

As in 1983, the are wrapped around Pirelli wheels. They are coated a Titanium-colored paint. The manufacturer the visual effect of the five as an homage to the wheels of the first GTI.

They had openings in the of a P for Pirelli on their outer This P is also found in the new design – but in this case it is In the rim flange. However, there are of difference between the dimensions of the two of alloy wheels: They are inch today, but were inch back then.

Engine of the Golf GTI Pirelli.

It was 25 ago when Volkswagen first the era of downsizing on its first turbo-diesel. Of the Turbo-FSI on the GTI is technically unrelated to a but they have the principle of in common – in both cases displacement is replaced by engine Approximately one decade after the turbo-diesel, the direct-injection TDI followed. engine extended the principle of to include the aspect of direct

This mix of technologies yielded fuel consumption and emissions, and torque and power. On the Golf Volkswagen has transferred its 2004 concept to a powerful gasoline for the first time; its use of a turbocharger intercooler plus direct brings fuel economy and in greater harmony than The proof of this is measurable: The 147 kW / 200 PS and 280 strong Turbo-FSI of the “normal” GTI a top speed of 235 km/h and takes 7.2 for the sprint to 100 km/h. Average consumption: Exceptionally low for a sports car at 8.0 per 100 kilometers.

If the GTI is shifted by DSG, consumption is reduced to 7.9 liters.

The GTI Pirelli is proof today of the in combining gasoline direct and charging. Its turbocharged direct-injection engine is currently the most four cylinder engine Volkswagen. This front-mounted engine is shifted by a standard six-speed gearbox. The 16-valve cylinder with 1,984 cm3 outputs its maximum power of 169 kW / 230 PS at rpm.

Its maximum torque of 300 Newton-meters is over a large speed – from 2,200 to 5,200 Nothing is more befitting a car than this sort of characteristic.

And the efficiency of the charged VW injection gasoline engine is here too. In spite of an 30 PS, 20 Newton-meters and 10 km/h top speed, to the 200-PS version the manually Golf GTI Pirelli consumes 0.2 liters more fuel per 100 When shifted by a DSG dual transmission, its fuel consumption is identical at 7.9 liters per 100 kilometers!
