Despite receiving the biggest portion of Volkswagen’s limited-run two-seat hot hatch, UK order books have closed after being open for just a couple of months. In total, just 400 examples of the GTI Clubsport S are being sold worldwide. The first cars are expected to arrive on British roads this October.
Volkswagen’s 306bhp two-seater model can lay claim to being the fastest production front-wheel-drive car to lap the Nürbgurgring. It snatched the title from the Honda Civic Type R back in May after racing driver Benny Leuchter hustled an unmodified car around the 12.9-mile lap in 7min 49.21sec, 1.4sec faster than the Civic (watch the onboard here).
