Looks like Edition 45 might be on the way
« on: 03 November 2020, 06:33 »
Just been looking at German configurator for GTI Clubsport and they have added further wheel choices....

When you choose one of the GTI Cup wheels up pops a message saying you need to choose “Edition 45”

Sorry would add photo but just can’t get it work on here


(Thanks to Spikeyboy22 for tip off about new wheels)

No worries, just interesting to find out as much as possible on the Performance Golfs as possible.

I clicked on the further info tab and (translated) this is what it said for this GTI Cup wheels:

Wheel locks with extended theft protection
-
Progressive steering for 19-inch alloy wheels
-
4 "Scottsdale" alloy wheels, 8 J x 19
-
Exhaust system (sound exhaust)
-
The electronic limitation of the top speed was increased to 270 km / h
-
235/35 R 19 tyres

Hi Guys

Just thought I would share my Eureka moment on the way to work this morning.

We have been assuming that there would be two R versions but as seeing mention of Edition 45.  How do you think this stacks up

Golf GTI                  245ps
Golf GTI Clubsport   300ps
Golf GTI Edition 45  320ps
Golf R                     333ps

I know opinion has been divided on here about whether there would be any more power or just cosmetic upgrades to the ED45 but if they(VW) are mentioning Edition 45 on the configurator...why not in the owners manual so that might be the 235kw option on the recent Volkswizard post.

Surely they must be carbon at that price or that price is for a package that includes other components such as CUP2 tyres or equivalent.

With semi-slicks the price is €4,825.21. 😬

I can only think at that price there must be some mechanical upgrade somewhere 🤷‍♂️

Wow 😳 perhaps the ED45 is the last special GTI and VW are throwing everything at it?
