Anniversary VW Golf GTI gets more power

Volkswagen will launch a special anniversary edition of the Golf GTI later in 2011 to celebrate the car's 35th birthday.

At 232bhp, the Golf GTI Edition 35 is 25bhp more power than the standard version.

The Edition 35 also gets a revised front bumper, lightweight 18-inch alloys and a golf ball gearknob. Signature badging also sets the car apart from standard models.

Prices, performance and full specification details will be announced after the car has made its debut at the Worthersee tuning show in Austria at the beginning of June.
