2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S Concept

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S is the most commanding adaptation of the Golf GTI. It has been constructed to rejoice the 40 year-survival of the hot hatchback in the market. This exclusive 2017 model vehicle, which is derived from the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport, makes its global debut at the 2016 GTI episode at Lake Wörthersee. The high-performance figures of this new GTI, such as higher power and torque outputs than the earlier models, enhanced acceleration, top speed, and higher towing capacity are really impressive. However, the raw figures do not tell the entire story because the record tour time about the Nordschleife shows how fast this sports hatch actually is.

The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S is the most powerful ever version of the Golf GTI and was built to celebrate 40 years of the iconic hot hatchback. With German racing driver Benny Leuchter (28) at the wheel, the car has just smashed the existing lap record for front-wheel-drive production cars on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with a time of 7 minutes, 49.21 seconds.

This exclusive new vehicle, based on the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport, makes its world premiere at the 2016 GTI event at Lake Wörthersee. The hard performance numbers of this new GTI are truly impressive: a power output of 228 kW/310 PS; 280 pound-feet of torque between 1,700 and 5.300 rpm; 0 to 62 mph acceleration in 5.8 seconds; a top speed of 162 mph; and an unladen weight (including the driver and luggage) that has been reduced to 2,998 pounds. But the raw figures don’t tell the whole story, as the record lap time around the Nordschleife demonstrates how fast this car actually is.

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S Release Date

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Specs

For the model year 2017, the VW Golf GTI 2017 comes with some external changes that not only establish it that it is an aggressive-looking hatch, but also a performance-oriented vehicle. It comes equipped with a set of Pretoria alloy wheels with the diameter of 19 inches. The wheels come enclosed with the 235/35 ZR sized Sport Cup 2 tires from Michelin in the front and at the back. The new Golf GTI comes equipped with tinted back windows that are capable of absorbing 65% of the light. Some of the other modified external elements include Clubsport S category plates, Bi-Xenon headlamps with turning lights and LED daylight running lights. Regarding the aerodynamics, Volkswagen was capable of drawing on the changes already applied in the Golf GTI Clubsport. Both the Clubsport S and the standard Clubsport models have completely novel front bumpers that perk up engine induction, front end aerodynamics, and the downforce.

Each of the 400 VW Golf GTI Clubsport S cars made will have its production number (001/400 to 400/400) on the center console in the front. The driver and the front seat passenger sit in racing bucket seats that provide the necessary lateral support while flying around the Nordschleife. The car also features GTI insignia that’s featured in the “normal” Golf GTI Clubsport, including the iconic golf ball shifter knob with Alcantara trim, a red line in the safety belts, “Honeycomb 40” design decals on the dashboard and doors, and elegant Piano Black accents. The extremely grippy Alcantara-trimmed sport steering wheel, which has a chrome GTI emblem, red stitching and the 12-o’clock position marked out, was designed to be ergonomically perfect for the track.

At the rear, it comes equipped with a roof-edge spoiler, which has been perfected in the wind channel and is considerably larger that results in considerable amounts of supplementary rear downforce. In combination with a black diffuser at the back, this two-piece rear wing creates additional downforce on the back axle than the axle in the front.

The 17-inch brake system of the new Golf GTI 2017 has been customized to endure the high temperatures imposed at a racetrack. It comes equipped with the aluminum-made disc rotors in the front and at the back, and they are connected to the steel disc brakes by cast setting pins, allowing them to enlarge radially while they heat up.

When comes to handling the notable factor is that the unsprung weight of each wheel is 2.2 lbs (1 kg) lower due to the aluminum brake covers. The new Golf GTI Clubsport S also comes equipped with special brake pads to perk up the braking performance further. It comes equipped with an aluminum sub-frame for the suspension in the front and aluminum brake covers, which play a vital role in reducing the weight. Due to these features, it comes with the unladen weight of 2833 pounds (approx 1288 kg), which is 66 pounds (30 kg) less than that of the similarly outfitted Golf GTI Clubsport.

Other changes for the most exclusive Golf GTI include the following: semi-slick Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires mounted on 19-inch “Pretoria” alloy wheels, tinted rear windows that absorb 65 percent of the light, “Clubsport S” type plates, Bi-Xenon headlights with cornering lights and LED daytime running lights. The brake system was also modified to withstand the high temperatures inflicted at a racetrack. The disc bells are made of aluminium and are connected to the steel discs by cast location pins, allowing them to expand radially when they heat up. An important factor for the car’s handling is that the unsprung mass of each wheel is 2.2 pounds lower thanks to the aluminum brake covers. To further improve the braking performance, the Golf GTI Clubsport S has special brake pads.

The cabin of the next generation VW Golf GTI Clubsport S comes equipped with two seats. Doing away with the back seats, as well as the central armrest, play a vital role in reducing the overall weight. A smaller battery set, as well as performing without insulation, the changeable-height trunk floor, the back package shelf, and the ground mats also play a vital role in reducing the body weight.

The weight reduction is achieved due to the removal of the back seats, rear doors, center armrest, sound deadening material, back parcel shelf, utilization of a smaller battery, removal of the aluminum sub-frame in the front, as well as removal of the two-part brake rotors. This results in an active power-to-weight ratio of 9.14 lbs per horsepower. As the new Golf comes with lesser body weight, it offers better fuel efficiency, as well, with the CO2 gas discharge of 31.8 mpg (172 g/km).
The 2017 model Golf GTI Clubsport S comes equipped with the black painted roof and with three attractive body colors that include: Pure White, Tornado Red and Deep Black Pearl Effect.

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S Redesign

The idea for the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S originated when the team responsible for the “normal” GTI at Volkswagen tested the final version of the current Golf GTI Performance Pack on the racetrack. “It was obvious to all of us that this GTI had immense potential,” recalls Karsten Schebsdat, Head of Chassis Tuning, “so we decided to get the most performance possible out of this car. A small team went through the entire process, from bottom to top, pretty much like it was back when the first Golf GTI came into being.” In addition to the weight reduction and the improvement in performance, two other factors are of fundamental importance when it comes to designing a really fast car: optimal aerodynamics and an outstanding chassis.

When it comes to aerodynamics, Volkswagen was able to draw on the modifications already implemented in the Golf GTI Clubsport. Both the “Clubsport” and the “Clubsport S” have completely new front bumpers that improve engine induction, front end aero, and downforce. At the rear, the roof-edge spoiler that was perfected in the wind tunnel and is significantly larger on the Clubsport versions results in significant amounts of additional rear downforce. In conjunction with a black rear diffuser, this two-part rear wing generates more downforce on the rear axle than on the front axle. In the case of the Golf GTI Clubsport S, this means that the understeer that is typical of front-wheel-drive cars is practically eliminated.

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Engine

The expansion team of Volkswagen applied synergies between the motorsport and production cars in enhancing the performance of the 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S engine. The new sports hatchback comes equipped with a four-cylinder, turbocharged engine with the displacement of 2.0 liters, which was used to power the Golf GTI TCR race car. This powertrain offers it the required power output of 310 ponies and the required torque of 280 lbs per foot. With this powertrain, the new Golf GTI 2017 is capable of attaining the speed of 60 mph from the stationary mode in 5.8 seconds and attaining the maximum velocity of 162 mph. The powertrain will be attached with a manual transmission system that sends power to the front wheels.

The special edition Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S has recorded a sub-7min50sec lap of Germany’s infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife, making it the fastest front-wheel-drive production car to lap the 20.83-kilometre circuit.

With 228kW of power and 380Nm of torque available from its turbocharged 2.0-litre EA888 four-cylinder engine, the two-seat, three-door, manual-only Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S the most powerful GTI ever set a time of 07:49:21, bettering the 7:54.36 time set by the Renault Megane RS275 Trophy-R back in June 2014.

Limited to a production run of 400 cars, Volkswagen claims the special edition Golf GTI Clubsport S can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds and wind out to 265km/h.
