213kW Race-inspired Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR teased in sketches

2016 Volkswagen GTI TCR race car

That makes the TCR the fastest road-going Golf ever (if you request to have it de-restricted) "and generally the fastest Volkswagen licenced for use on the roads" according to VW.

It will be the fastest Golf yet.

This is the first pictures of the new VW Golf GTI TCR.

The Golf GTI TCR is similar in concept to the limited-edition 2016 Clubsport Edition 40, which celebrated the Golf GTI's 40th birthday and was a top-of-the-range GTI that sat just below the Golf R.

The standard Volkswagen Golf GTI puts out a solid 220 horsepower, and it's a perennial favorite among hot-hatch aficionados.

Rihanna Poses For Sexy 'Vogue' Shoot, Says She's Releasing A Reggae Album
And now speaking in the latest edition of Vogue , Rihanna has addressed her complex relationship with the Canadian rapper. While Rih said her and Drake's relationship is now nonexistent, she does have "Love on the Brain" for a new beau.

It will also undercut the GTI Performance model's 0-62mph benchmark sprint of 6.2sec, although the time has not yet been confirmed.

Power travels to the front tires by way of a standard seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that feeds a locking front differential.

Production is set for the end of 2018, though pricing details and whether there'll be any United Kingdom availability is still to be confirmed. Based on the GTI that races in the TCR series, this GTI TCR sticks with its 2.0-liter turbocharged I4, but output jumps to 286 hp.

The adoption of the 48V electrical system and integrated starter motor is part of VW's powertrain overhaul across the Mk8 Golf line-up. Whether or not the auto will be made available in Canada remains to be seen.
