Fast, fun, practical and stylish, the Golf GTi was the original hot hatch and now, seven generations later, it remains the benchmark model upon which all other hatches are judged. Add in unparalleled support from aftermarket tuning houses the world over, and you can see why the GTi remains the top of the hot-hatch-tree.
Reinforcing that theory is this simply stunning 2018 Mk7.5 model. Resplendent in an immaculate coat of ultra-rare White Silver Metallic – a unique and now discontinued paint pigment which reflects a brilliant shimmering white in the daylight, but a cool pale blue once the sun sets – this professionally-tuned, one-previous-keeper vehicle certainly stands out in a crowd, and for all the right reasons.
As you can imagine, the previous owner was a keen VW enthusiast and recruited only the most respected tuners to work on the car, spending over £5200 in top quality modifications over his tenure. These include a Wagner Competition intercooler kit, VW RacingLine Performance R600 intake system and RS3 coilpack set, all controlled by a stage two ECU remap from regarded Glasgow-based tuners Infinit. This has resulted in a brawny 350bhp which, in a front wheel drive car such as the GTi, is more than enough to get pulses racing without disrupting the fine handling balance and driving dynamics that the GTi is known for. A Scorpion downpipe and a VagSport exhaust resonator delete pipe kit have also been installed and combine to produce a spine-tingling exhaust note (please see the end of our walkaround video).
And if you notice that the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres that wrap around VW Parker wheels seem a little closer to the arches than usual, that’s due to the fitment of £1300 ST Suspensions ST-XTA coilovers. Featuring both height and damping adjustment, these are just one example of the carefully considered upgrades that have been lavished on this unique machine that take it to a whole other level of performance and fun.
Open the driver’s door and you are greeted by the futuristic Virtual Dash display with 8inch touchscreen in the centre console, plus supportive sports seats trimmed in GTi Jakata cloth. Elsewhere there’s yet more red accents in the form of the stitching and aftermarket paddle shifters. These slick anodised billet shifters are the perfect foil for rifling through the seven speed DSG gearbox that features additional Infinit Performance TCU gearbox calibration for even faster shifting to keep that highly tuned 2.0-litre turbocharged engine on the boil.
Being a facelift model it benefits from revised styling to the front and rear bumpers as well as the Dynamic LED headlights and tail lights, which dramatically improve the look of the car over the pre-facelift version, adding a more modern and contemporary feel to the aesthetics.
Keeping your eyes drawn into the details you’ll notice a host of GTi-specific touches which take inspiration from the GTi’s trademark red badge. These include the eye-catching red pinstripe which traverses the bottom of the honeycomb grille and is carried on into the headlight housings. There’s also red badging on the front wings and the meaty front calipers wear the bright crimson hue too, making them pop from behind the twisted, diamond-cut spokes of the 18in alloys.
