VW Golf GTI 240

If only all special editions had more bhp
If only all special editions had more bhp
The Golf VI isn’t far away but that doesn’t mean VW can’t just in a few special editions before number V disappears. But this isn’t your usual few extras and a paint job special edition, this one gets more power.

It’s the GTI 240 and there are no points for guessing what the name means – power of the Edition 30 has been boosted by 10bhp to 240. Unfortunately the rest is standard Golf but it does come with  new standard features as the bi-xenon headlamps, Pioneer touch screen navigation system as well as a new sound system.

The bad news is the car will only be available in Holland and just 300 are being produced. The GTI 240 is set to retail for €31 995, quite a bit cheaper than a GTI Edition 30 at €35 050.
