Adi­das adds its mark to Golf

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - Front Page -

The Golf GTI Adi­das makes its pre­miere at this year’s Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show in Syd­ney. The Golf GTI Adi­das fol­lows in the mould of the Golf Pirelli GTI. But un­like the Pirelli, you don’t get any­more power from the 2.0-litre tur­bocharged four cylin­der en­gine. DSG how­ever is in­cluded in the price. Avail­able in red or white, the new Golf GTI Adi­das can be recog­nised by a spe­cial al­loy wheel de­sign.

In this case, it is the 18 “Ser­ron” wheel, named af­ter a Fin­nish race course.

Bi-xenon head­lights are stan­dard along with dark tinted tail light clus­ters with LED technology.

Spe­cial Adi­das badges on the B-pil­lars also iden­tify this car as a spe­cial model.

In­side, the black-red sport seat sys­tem was cus­tomised in the joint ven­ture with Adi­das.

Heated and height ad­justable, the front seats are trimmed in a com­bi­na­tion of fab­ric and leather, with the dou­ble cap seam of the head re­straints in “Flash Red”.

Colour-con­trast­ing dec­o­ra­tive door in­lays (front), spe­cial in­te­rior ac­cents in alu­minium, fab­ric floor mats with dec­o­ra­tive bor­ders and a gearshift grip in the golf ball de­sign of the first gen­er­a­tion GTI, com­plete the cus­tomised fea­tures.

The Adi­das also of­fers stan­dard fea­tures such as a RCD 510 au­dio sys­tem, Me­dia De­vice In­ter­face (MDI) and stan­dard Blue­tooth Phone Con­nec­tiv­ity. The GTI’s en­gine is good for 155kW and 7.6 litres/100km. Like all GTIs it is also equipped with the sport chas­sis which delivers ex­tremely im­pres­sive per­for­mance with an elec­tronic trans­verse dif­fer­en­tial lock ( XDL) and GTI-spe­cific ESP tun­ing.

The spe­cial edi­tion Golf GTI Adi­das five-door 6-speed DSG is avail­able from $45,990.
