Golf GTI V50

Tuning by Volkswagen. Warranty by Volkswagen

Original Article

The Golf GTI V50 is pumped not just with extra horsepower but the spirit of a steed. With a Stage 1 ECU tuned to 250hp, you’ll post a stunning time of 5.6 seconds in the 100 kph sprint, sending your 2-litre hatch streets ahead.

The aggressive sports styling is amplified by Pirelli "P Zero" 18-inch alloy rims with 225/40 R18 tyres that let you burn rubber in style.

To tame the speed explosion, hug the asphalt with brake discs and callipers used in the range-topping Golf GTI R32, which round off the Golf GTI V50’s dynamic road-feel and sensitive handling.

These tune-ups and more will be performed by Volkswagen Centre Singapore’s technical experts – using genuine and approved parts and technology – and are covered by Volkswagen’s 3-year warranty.

The Golf GTI V50 is a one-time, limited offer. In Singapore only.

Come down to the Volkswagen Centre Singapore today, before they all speed off.
