Adidas adds its mark to Golf
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.
