Volkswagen will be celebrating the Golf GTI's 40th birthday with thousands of fans at the 35th GTI Meet at Lake Wörthersee in Austria this weekend.

At the meet, Volkswagen will showcase an even hotter version of the Golf GTI called the Golf GTI Clubsport S. This will be the most powerful version of the Golf GTI till date and VW will only make 400 units of the same. It will churn out an impressive 310PS of power.

The GTI Clubsport S will borrow its engine from the 330PS Golf GTI TCR, which is the race car version being used by Volkswagen Motorsport in the TCR International Series. Engine aside, Volkswagen has also extensively worked on its chassis to give it better handling dynamics and stability. As a result of this, the VW GTI Clubsport S was able to complete a lap around the legendary Nurburgring circuit in just 7min 49.21sec, a new record for any front-wheel drive production car.
