Volkswagen to reveal long-awaited Up GTI at Worthersee

Yes, it's got Volkswagen's most hallowed hot hatch badge upon its snout, alongside all of the GTI hallmarks, with a red-striped grille and tartan seats inside. It's powered by a turbocharged 113bhp engine, which Volkswagen says will send the auto to 62mph in 8.8 seconds and on to a top speed of more than 120mph - figures that are very similar to the original Golf GTI.

Expected to go on sale in the United Kingdom in early 2018 - and costing around £14.5k - the Up! 41 years on from the original, Volkswagen's keen to conjure up the spirit of the past, with a sporty, nimble vehicle that puts fun over fast. Gti aims to take the fight to cars like the Abarth 500, although it's doing that with a chunk less power. The vehicle you see here is actually a concept, although it's a production-ready one that directly previews the auto due to hit showrooms in early 2018. Available exclusively with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the Up should finally offer the sort of driving experience we have been hoping for.

The top Golf GTI however is the limited edition Clubsport S, but that one is based on the pre-facelift model.

Aesthetically, Volkswagen has delivered typically restrained styling, but with just enough GTI cues to justify the badge.

Inside, Clark plaid fabric upholstery, GTI door sill trims, a sportier steering wheel and gearknob, red dashboard trim, a leather-wrapped handbrake lever, black headlining and red ambient lighting set the up!

The Up GTI also stands out from other Ups thanks to sitting 15mm lower on sports suspension, as well as having a red strip at the rear and a larger roof spoiler. Even the colour palette is borrowed from the current Golf GTI.
