Volkswagen ups the performance of its GTI lineup with the reveal of its new Golf Mk8 GTI Clubsport. The new hot hatch is powered by a turbocharged engine that produces 295 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The high-performance engine is complemented by an equally high-performance look with a bold bumper treatment with a honeycomb design and larger wings that enhance aerodynamics. The five-door also features a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, front spoiler and rear wing for increased downforce, standard 18-inch wheels, an exclusive diffuser, oval tailpipes, wider side sills, and it's been lowered by 10mm.
