Volkswagen Golf GTI: the sports icon is coming with the best VW performance parts
The 2005 Volkswagen GTI is a 2-door, 5-passenger sports coupe, available in two versions, the 1.8T and the VR6. The new GTI boasts a top speed of 145 mph and will hit 62 mph from standstill in just 7.2 seconds in the six-speed manual version that combines FSI technology with a turbocharger for the first time.
