Volkswagen announces Polo GTI Cup Edition

Volkswagen has launched a new special edition Polo GTI, called the GTI Cup Edition, for its home market, a roadgoing version of the companys ADAC Volkswagen Polo Cup series car. The car is powered by a 180-hp 1.8L turbocharged five-valve four-cylinder engine, which delivers a 0-60 mph time of 7.5 seconds, and a top speed of 139 mph. The 1.8 liter engine has a maximum torque of 173 lb.-ft., available at 2000 rpm.

The Polo GTI Cup Edition is distinguished by a special roof spoiler, side skirts, 17-inch alloy wheels, and upgraded brakes, reports Trend.

The interior of the Polo GTI Cup Edition is unchanged from the regular GTI. The GTI Cup costs 3,000 euros more than the regular GTI. But dont expect to see it in the States.

Higher power and a racing look - the Polo GTI Cup Edition

- Most powerful production series Polo offers not only looks, but also terrific performance and thrilling driving

Wolfsburg, 12 July 2006 - A racing car feel, but licensed for the road: the Polo GTI Cup Edition brings the look of the junior race series Polo to the road. In the ADAC Volkswagen Polo Cup talented young drivers take it to the race circuits with 150 PS. The turbo-charged Polo GTI Cup Edition is more than a match for that its 180 PS make it the most powerful production Polo of all time.

Even the 110 kW (150 PS) standard specification Polo GTI is one of the fastest small compacts. Just a few months after its launch the designers and development engineers at Volkswagen Individual have gone one further both technically and optically.

The turbocharged five-valve four-cylinder engine has had its performance boosted to produce 132 kW (180 PS) from 1.8 litres and a maximum torque of 235 newton metres, already available at 2000 rpm. That puts the Polo GTI at the top of its segment and makes it a dynamic thrill to drive. Not surprising with a power-weight ratio of just 6.6 kilograms per PS!

This engine propels the fastest Polo of all time to a maximum speed of 225 km/h and the Cup Edition accelerates from a zero to 100 km/h in only 7.5 seconds.

The standard Polo GTI is already distinguishable by its looks as an emphatically muscular version, but the striking design of the Cup Edition goes one better: roof spoiler designed by Volkswagen Individual, front and rear skirts taken virtually straight from the ADAC Polo Cup racing car and conspicuous side sills. The Cup Edition lettering on the tailgate provides the conclusive evidence of it racing pedigree.

Behind the large 7.5 J x 17-inch alloys which have the Aristo four-spoke design, there are uprated brakes with red calipers. Together with the wide 205/40 ZR 17 tyres they provide sports car braking performance. The typical GTI interior with luxury Interlagos sports seats remains the same as does the extensive safety package with ESP as standard.

The Polo GTI Cup Edition is available to order now as a two or four door version in the finishes Metallic Reflex Silver, Flash Red and Black Magic Pearl Effect starting from 22 425 euros.
