The 286 HP TCR is the most powerful FWD Golf GTI ever, and probably the sendoff to the current gen.
From the all-new Golf to the electric hatchback, Volkswagen will go all-in this year with new products.
VW ditches mild-hybrid plans for the new Golf GTI but the technology will be available in the regular versions.
Officially, the TCR easily bests the GTI Performance but loses out to the all-wheel drive R.
Remember, the McLaren F1 applies to those born between 1994 and 1998.
For those keeping track, that would be no less than 300 PS (296 hp / 221 kW) combined with front-wheel drive.

The Golf R may have more power and AWD but the GTI TCR is a sharper tool.
The new version slots right between the GTI Performance and the R, both in specs as well as pricing.
Pricing starts from £20,510 for the hatchback, and deliveries will commence next month.
It definitely looks different than the Golf Mk7 as well as the latest Polo, yet we’re not entirely convinced it’s real.
ABT will also display other tuned cars at the Essen Show, which kicks off in Germany on December 1.
