Volkswagen is to celebrate the 35th anniversary of its Golf GTI with this, the Golf GTI Edition 35.

For human beings, 35 is not generally a birthday that is approached with relish but, although the Golf GTI has got a bit chunkier with age, it's still a pretty fine hot hatch and so 35 years is certainly a marker worth celebrating.

VW is doing this by lobbing an extra 25ps at the engine, giving it 235ps (or 232bhp in 'real' money) and thus making it the most powerful production Golf GTI to date

In addition to the extra power, the Golf GTI Edition 35 also gets a selection of extra 'classic' GTI design elements, as well as a few bits and bobs specifically created for the latest anniversary model.

There's a revised front bumper and lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels on the outside, while the cabin gets treated to the return of the famous 'golf ball' gearknob.

The Edition 35 also gets the usual special edition cosmetic tweaks, in this case a '35' signature on the front wings, sill plates, head restraints and on the centre panel of the seats.

This latest anniversary model will make its world debut at the GTI event at Wörthersee in Austria at the beginning of June.

Order books open for the Golf GTI Edition 35 in the UK later this year, but prices and full UK specification are yet to be announced.

Doesn't seem as special as the ED30 did over the regular mk5 GTI to me.

I dont think the wheels suit it but damn I love those seats.

Went to overtake one of these but the normal GTi yesterday... heard a load of boost-type noises coming from my left and saw it was staying neck and neck with me... and we know how slow the 5 is. Majorly dissapointed in that, he should have in theory been off like a shot!

Not a fan of any newer Golf-sized hatch though, they're all looking a bit chintzy/nasty now Sad

i'd guess it was a 1.4 TSI 120ps that looked like a GTI.

A mk6 GTI would have left you (no offence)

But then I do like embarasing mk6 gtis, Mk5 R32's etc in my lesser VAG model....

It had a massive GTi badge on the back when I was following it before (plus all the GTi kit), so I'm guessing not. It *should* have left me, it just didn't though, and the 5 really is no rocket ship!
