2006 Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 30
(from VW Press
Release) Wolfsburg, 21 May 2006 - Volkswagen today
introduced the Golf GTI Edition 30, a new study to mark the 30th
anniversary of the GTI at the Golf Record Day in the Veltins Arena
in Schalke, Gelsenkirchen in front of an audience of thousands of
Golf drivers from throughout Europe.
With a powerful 230 PS (169 kW) 2.0 litre turbo FSI engine, the Edition 30 study is closely related to the production model and responds to the wishes of GTI enthusiasts. The options package, a profile of desired equipment, is a reaction to the numerous wishes from customers.
Especially prominent are the flat black 18-inch alloy wheels, the lower front and rear panels, the side skirts in body finish and the darkened tail lights. A plaque on the right side of the rear hatch with the text “Edition 30” identifies this GTI study.
The interior includes top-quality, part-leather sport seats sporting the distinctive "Interlagos" diamond pattern in the cloth centre section.
The red-stitched leather steering wheel is trimmed with a clip bearing the text "GTI" on a red background. Another eye-catcher is the foil with the text “Edition 30” on the door sill. A special highlight is the gear stick knob in the form of a golf ball. Floor mats trimmed in red round out the dynamic character of the study.
