Volkswagen has released images of its ‘GTI Concept’ which will be unveiled on October 2nd at the Paris Motor Show.  However don’t let the ‘Concept’ tag fool you, what you see here will be almost exactly what you’ll be able to buy from your local Volkswagen dealer next year.

Compared to the current Mk.V GTI the new car gains an extra 7kW (10bhp) taking maximum power to 154kW (207bhp).  The Mk.V also gets a new electronic limited-slip diff, named XDS and the adaptive chassis control system (ACC) from the Scirocco, enabling drivers to choose from normal, comfort and sport settings.

Buyers will be able to choose from the standard six-speed manual or the optional six-speed DSG twin-clutch semi-auto transmission, both which are offered in the current GTI.
