2013 VW GTI Driver's Edition and Wolfsburg Edition Debut in Chicago

2/9/2013
Volkswagen announced two new special-edition versions of the 2013 GTI at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Offered in limited quantities, the VW GTI Driver's Edition and the VW GTI Wolfsburg Edition commemorate the final model year for the sixth-generation GTI. Each of these new versions of the GTI is available only in 5-door format, and only with Candy White, Carbon Steel Gray, or Deep Black paint.

The 2013 Volkswagen GTI Wolfsburg Edition goes on sale by the end of March, priced at $25,095 with the standard 6-speed manual gearbox. A Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) automated manual transmission is optional and priced at $1,100. The automaker plans to build just 2,000 examples of the GTI Wolfsburg Edition, which will include standard GTI equipment plus upgraded 18-inch Laguna design aluminum wheels, carpeted floor mats with red stitching, and what Volkswagen refers to as a "retro-themed golf ball shifter knob."

The 2013 Volkswagen GTI Driver's Edition builds on the Wolfsburg Edition with partial leather seating, power sunroof, navigation system, certificate of authenticity, and a GTI hat, keychain and parking sign. Volkswagen plans 3,000 examples of the GTI Driver's Edition, which starts at $29,695 with the manual transmission.
