After revealing the 6th generation Golf, now Volkswagen announced also there will be 3 sporty variants.

The GTI version first there will be unveiled at the Auto Show in Paris. It will be delivering 210 hp going on sale before 2009 mid-year with prices beginning at 26,400 Euro (or around $38,150 at present rates, if we converted directly.)

So the turbo-boosted GTI model has the claimed zero to100 kilometers / hour (with 62.5 mph) time - 7.2 seconds - 239 km/hour maximum speed, or under 150 mph only.

Next is Golf GTD, due on going next April in production. Powered by common-rail diesel making 170hp, starting at 27,225 Euro, or around 39,340 dollars.

The new range topper of Golf will be some all-wheel-drive "R" variant from Volkswagen Individual. So, the in-house customization model boosts that GTI up to 270 hp adding a gleaming diffuser black, among the other features.

So the production debut for the Golf R unit is early 2009 November. Its cost hasn't been disclosed though.
