​The First Volkswagen up! GTI premiered in Austria

The new up! GTI was premiered last week at the legendary GTI Meet at Lake Wörthersee in Austria. This is the first up! GTI making It the most powerful up! in the range.

Sophisticated sports running gear coupled with a powerful engine and low kerb weight means the up! GTI will blend speed with agility to bring a new dimension of driving fun to the city car category.

The up! GTI will have the iconic red stripe across the grille and redesigned 17- inch alloy wheels giving the up! a GTI look. This theme continues inside with a leather-trimmed sport steering wheel, a GTI gear knob and the legendary ‘clark’ seat pattern.

The up! is set to be launched in the start of 2018. Available colours to the car will be ‘tornado red’ and ‘pure white’ and the metallic colours ‘dark silver’, ‘black pearl’ and – as a new GTI colour – ‘costa azul’ (blue).
