Reppin Deutschland...I'll take one in white or black with DSG.
VOLKSWAGEN GOLF GTI MK6 CONCEPT
With production slated to start in spring 2009. The new MK6 concept is powered by the 2.0-litre four cylinder TSI engine currently seen in the Scirocco (European release) producing 210 PS (207hp) – 10 PS more than the current Mk V GTI.
Also new, the GTI Concept receives a Adaptive Chassis Control system (ACC). The ACC aids the already stiffened sport suspension with electronically controlled pneumatic dampeners which have three ride level settings ranging from ‘comfort’ to ‘normal’ and ‘sport’. Depending on the ACC setting and driving conditions, the ACC system also remaps the steering and throttle response for enhanced body control. Also, the new GTI concept features for the first time an electronic limited slip differential (XDS) which is linked to ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program).
Despite the increase in power the new engine is still more efficient with 37.6 mpg (combined cycle) while emitting 178 g/km of CO2 compared to 189 g/km for the Mk V GTI. 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 7.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 148 mph making it the fastest standard production GTI yet.
BOTTOM LINE: WICKED. The back needs a little help but the new MK6 looks like a champ with styling cues from the previous GTI W12 650 Concept. Mos def a winner with added horsepower/technology and better fuel consumption. Can't wait to see this properly tuned on the streets.

Flat bottom steering wheel ... nice
While on the topic of V-dubs, I just wanted to give a honorable mention to the track tuned Scirocco GT24. The road version is an European release only..... fuckers. Weak American dollar my ass.
