2011 marks the Anniversary and to celebrate this momentous occasion,  Volkswagen has announced that starting May 12th, a special edition model dubbed Edition 35 will be available  for order in Germany.  

Since  its debut in 1976, the Golf GTI has been a favorite with automotive enthusiasts around the world and it is fitting that the special model combines classic elements with a modern twist. The 35th Anniversary Golf GTI features several interior and exterior changes including new front bumper designed exclusively for this special edition. To make sure everyone knows that this is the special 35th Anniversary edition, VW has strategically placed '35' on the fenders, door sills, and seats. To set it a few car lengths apart from the standard Golf GTI, power has been increased from 210 to 235hp.

The world premiere of the Golf GTI 35th Anniversary Edition will take place at the legendary GTI Meet from June 1st - 4th in Wörthersee, Germany. As part of the celebration Volkswagen will have previous GTI Anniversary Edition models on hand. The Golf GTI 35th Anniversary Edition has a base price of €30,425 and will be delivered to customers in the middle of June.
