VW unveils its’ 80s-inspired GTI BBS enthusiast concept

The GTI BBS concept is delightfully 80s, but without the kitsch.

Volkswagen Mark VIII GTI is a spectacular carsure, but it’s not radical in the way classic GTIs from the 80s and 90s wereAlthough the company partnered with well-known VW enthusiast Jamie Orr to make one that is. The latest VW enthusiast concept, announced last week, is called the GTI BBS Concept. As the name suggests, it includes some classic BBS wheels and other visual modifications to give it a proper ’80s vibe.

The wheels were chosen by Orr and are 19×9-inch BBS Super RS ​​models wrapped in Delinte 235/35/19 D7 tires. This style of wheels has been widely used and well loved on European cars since the 1980s. He also lowered the car by fitting H&R coilovers which he modified to add a camber adjustment for the front.

The GTI BBS does not receive any modifications that add power other than the Borla exhaust system, which is the first aftermarket system available for the brand new MkVIII.

Finally, Orr added a stellar set of black and red stripes that are reminiscent of the GTIs of yesteryear without looking too over the top. The interior of the MkVIII remains intact.

Overall, it’s a really great take on a car that’s already great, and we wish Volkswagen would just put this version of the car up for sale because it’s pretty much exactly how we’d have our 2022 GTI when it hits US dealerships late. of this year. .
