Volkswagen has previewed a brawny 286bhp version of the seventh-generation Golf GTI with the unveiling of the TCR Concept at the annual Wörthersee fan meet in Austria.

The new performance hatchback celebrates VW’s participation in the TCR (Touring Car Racing) championship, for which it provides factory support to privateer teams with a dedicated 345bhp track-based version of the Golf GTI developed by its Motorsport division.

While billed as a concept, the front-wheel-drive Golf GTI TCR has been confirmed for production later this year, with VW officials suggesting volumes will not be restricted. However, with development of the eighth-generation Golf — planned for introduction in 2019 — already at an advanced stage, the road-going Golf GTI TCR appears set for a relatively short production life.

With 286bhp at 5000rpm in overboost mode, at which turbocharger boost pressure is raised from a nominal 1.9 to 2.1 bar for periods of up to 10 seconds, it develops 44bhp more than the less heavily tuned engine used by the standard Golf GTI with the optional performance package.

Torque remains at the same level offered by the strongest of the standard Golf GTI models, building to a peak of 272lb ft between 1600rpm and 4300rpm.
