8,150 MILES





Service History









Hot hatches are not usually known for their collectible investment potential, as the numbers manufactured are just far too numerous. But one model that doesn’t suffer from this kind of over exposure is this track-ready 2016 Golf GTi Clubsport S. 

Only 400 examples of this tarmac-terrorist were made worldwide, with just 150 available in the UK, making this stunning example, complete with numbered build plaque denoting number 208 of 400, one of the rarest hot hatches money can buy.

Aside from pure exclusivity, it also has the kind of specification that makes it acclaimed by many as the ‘ultimate VW Golf’.

For starters, the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine has received a revised ECU calibration, uprated fuel pump and a freer-flowing 65mm cat-back exhaust system, raising the power output to 310PS, up 45PS from the ‘base’ GTi Clubsport.

This increased shove is paired with a kerb weight that is 30kg lighter than the base Clubsport too, a reduction in mass that comes from its lightweight 19in wheels, aluminium subframe, smaller lightweight battery and an interior which has had the rear seats, sound deadening, and insulation deleted and a pair of lightweight Recaro shell bucket seats installed in the front.

Other select Clubsport S upgrades have also been lavished on the suspension, braking system and aerodynamic package, that, combined with the unique Nurburgring Mode in the driving profile selector, endows the Clubsport S with the performance to lap the famous ‘Green Hell’ in an astonishing 7 minutes and 49 seconds. 

This searingly capable and ultra-exclusive hot hatch is offered in immaculate original and unmodified condition, having only ever been used in the dry on the road (never seen a track), and with just one previous VW enthusiast keeper and 8150 miles from new. It has been fastidiously maintained and comes with a full Volkswagen main-dealer service history as well as benefitting from every single UK factory optional extra from new. 

For over 6 years, since late-2016, this example has been stored and cared for by our in-house team at Automotive Addiction, who has held the car as part of an extensive collection for the previous owner. Now it is for sale, it has also undergone our extensive 40-hour preparation process including multi-stage paint correction, to ensure every inch of the vehicle is as immaculate as possible, ready for the new owner to cherish as they see fit either in their own coveted collection or by using the car’s elevated performance on track

Our painstaking inspection process has revealed no instances of non-factory paintwork, with consistent paint micron readings across all body-panels. So you can buy in confidence that this special Clubsport S has led a life free of damage and is in simply impeccable condition both inside and out.
