2019 VW Golf GTI TCR Racing Car – Wider Body And More Power. 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR (racing series) – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Subscribe.
Under the bonnet of the racing car is the base 2.0 engine of the same 2.0 TSI used in the Golf GTI Performance and Golf GTI TCR series – a four-cylinder, four-valve engine with turbocharging and direct injection. In the racing version, however, it delivers 257 kW/350 PS and generates a maximum torque of 420 Nm. The Golf GTI TCR of the racing series accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, with its maximum speed due to the specific transmission ratio at around 250 km/h. Visually, the racing version differs from the standard model primarily in the form of its roughly 15 centimetres wider body and its adjustable aluminium rear wing. The safety of the driver is ensured by e.g. a racing bucket seat with head protectors, a racing safety cell and a safety tank that meets FIA regulations.
