Anniversary’s and birthdays are nice – they’re a great occasion for a nice dinner, an evening out with some friends, or maybe even a trip. If you’re a car company, though, you get to turn out a brand new vehicle. For the 40th anniversary of the Golf, Volkswagen has done just that with the track-specific Golf GTI.

This model of the Golf gets 18 inch racing wheels, a chassis that is 40cm wider, a carbon spoiler, and more aerodynamic splitter up front. The powerplant on this car is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 330 horsepower and 302 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed sequential gearbox. With the upgraded engine and aerodynamics, the car’s sprint time is now just 0-62 in 5.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 142 mph. Unfortunately, this is a limited run with only twenty lucky car enthusiasts getting their hands on this. Maybe we’ll luck out and get one for the 80th anniversary.
