The basis is the GTI Clubsport with 300 PS
This is what distinguishes the special model from the GTI Clubsport
But back to the GTI Clubsport 45. The special model has a black painted roof including a rear spoiler and has several “45 logos”, for example on the side sills and the trunk lid. The most noticeable distinguishing feature, however, are the black ones 19 inch rims (Scottsdale) with red pinstripe. They belong to the ones offered exclusively for the special model “Race Package”, that in addition to the wheels also a Akrapovic exhaust system and a Vmax cancellation contains. The IQ.Light LED matrix headlights are also part of the standard equipment.
Base price of 47,790 euros
The changes in the interior are manageable. The sports seats have additional GTI logos, and another “45” is embedded in the steering wheel clasp. The Golf GTI Clubsport 45 can be ordered from March 1, 2021 at the base price of 47,790 euros. He’s good at that 6000 euros more expensive than the equally strong GTI Clubsport, which is available from dealers from 41,265 euros. This contrasts with the significantly improved equipment and the “Race Package” including Vmax cancellation, which is not available for standard club sport. So the bottom line is that the surcharge is okay. VW has not yet revealed when the first customer vehicles will be delivered.
