Prior Design gives Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI a wild racer transformation

Some like the restraint, sleeper styling of the Volkswagen Golf GTI but for us, it, and the 2021 Golf R, just look too tame and similar to the regular Golf range. Happily, Prior Design has come to the rescue!

As you can see from the renderings, it totally transforms the Golf GTI into a sexy, DTM racer-like beast.

Starting at the front, Prior Design has revised the front bumper with an elongated splitter to give the GTI better ground effect, but the stand out feature is certainly those amazingly flared front and rear wheel arches that completely change the hot hatch’s stance. They are further complemented by a set of new wheels (we are guessing 20-inches), lowered ride height and chunky side sills.

Around the back, there’s a new rear bumper to match those fat wheel arches, along with a new rear diffuser. Prior Design has also installed a more prominent and stylish roof spoiler to complete the racer look.

The tuner hasn’t announced the pricing or indeed when the kit will be put into production but it’s definitely one worth looking into if you want a more menacing look for your Golf GTI!
