If the GTI adidas will enter production next month for the European markets, the Excessive is a one-off showcar created specially for the Worthersee event. As Volkswagen says, the concept car is meant to demonstrate “the great design potential of the Golf GTI”.
The GTI Excessive sports a motorsport-inspired look, with key new components styled in high-gloss black piano paint. At the front the air intakes have been enlarged and the bumper features a low floating lip and aerodynamic elements that remind the splitters used on racecars.
VW says “it’s the first time splitter have been transferred to a production model with such high-end precision as on the Golf GTI Excessive”. The bumper front lip is continued across the wheel arches and the sills, all elements being painted in the same piano black hue. The rear end is dominated by a massive air diffuser, which lights fire-red when braking.
The car sits on 19-inch BBS CH Black Edition wheels which complements the special Firespark Metallic paintjob. On the inside, decorative elements include Piano Black air vents, brushed aluminium trim and sport seats with red and black Nappa leather upholstery.
On the technical side, there aren’t many changes to talk about. The GTI Excessive features larger perforated disk brakes (370 mm in the front and 310 mm at the back). Power is boosted by just over two percent, thanks to the newly fitted Akrapovic exhaust. As spectacular as it may look, the GTI Excessive won’t make its way to production. However, Volkswagen promises that if the accessories on the showcar receive a positive reaction from the fans, they could become available as Volkswagen Original Accessories.
