Volkswagen Golf GTI ‘adidas’ Edition

Volkswagen are set to release a limited edition of the Golf GTI. The new Golf GTI ‘adidas’ is the result of a partnership with the German sports clothing manufacturer, and sees a standard GTI decked out with a few stylistic changes.

The most obvious change is a set of new 18-inch 5×2 spoke alloys. Look closer and you’ll find LED lights at the rear, sporty bucket seats on the inside and a few adidas logos scattered around.

Mechanically the GTI adidas is the same as the standard GTI, meaning 207bhp from the turbocharged 2.0-litre engine. 0-62mph still takes 6.9 seconds and top speed is 155 mph.

I’m still trying to work out the link between Volkswagen and adidas, other than them both being German companies, but it doesn’t really matter as far as the UK market is concerned – we won’t be getting any of the 4,410 examples that will be built.
