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

No I think they are going to go out on the ED50 actually.... big birthday, one last Golf hurrah... along with an ID-3 fith birthday model (IED? lol birthday with a bang :whistle:)

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.

That’s a really interesting idea. It makes sense to me.

I don't think we should have seen those wheels as they have removed them off the german website and the new wheel design is off the UK website and the pictures of the Estoril wheels have also gone off the german site ...

I think some one stuffed up

Not like VW to mess up the configurators  :whistle:

Glad you mentioned it and good to see them. Obviously the Estoril wheels are destined for the R. The other ones well we will have to wait and see.

Thought I'd update this. Had my Clubsport test drive today and got chatting after. The chap I spoke with isn't your standard VW salesman, he's a petrol head. There is 100% something hotter on the way they have been told. Edition 45 came up a few times as the suspected name although he did mention just 'Edition' had been floating about. They haven't been told exactly what it will be, he couldn't confirm anything really apart from it is coming. He expected it to be R money, but again, that's not confirmed.

I'm not pulling the trigger on a Clubsport order just yet ...

Now we know all about the clubby, what else could they do?

My guess:

Stickers (think TCR...)
Seats with the name stitched into them
Akra as standard
Different wheels, 19's as standard perhaps?
Perhaps some sort of exclusive colour(s), possibly a black roof.
302bhp -not as much as the R but enough to say "its quicker"
The button like on the R, on the steering wheel that sets it to full attack mode.

I don't know what else they could throw at it really? Its already got Ring mode, it can't have R (or more than R) power can it? Definitely can't have drift mode lol.

Even so, 3500 quid more than a clubby?

I’ll add one more thing to the list: gloss black trim.

Just wish they stick a manual box in it to make it different. Like the old clubsport S. Unlikely to happen sadly. If it did id buy one. :smiley:

Think I might wait to see if an Edition 45 is confirmed. Then I promise I’ll never buy another car ever again...
