Volkswagen has released a video featuring virtual Golf GTIs recreating the only goal scored in last night's World Cup final.

It didn't take long for Volkswagen's marketing department to come up with a clip to celebrate Germany's triumph in last night's World Cup final against Argentina. Using 22 virtual Golf GTIs, VW recreated the moment when Mario Götze scored the only goal of the 2014 World Cup final in the second extra time, with only seven minutes to go until the last whistle on Estádio Maracanã.

As a reminder, Volkswagen is offering the Golf GTI with a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine outputting 220 PS (162 kW) in the standard model and 230 PS (169 kW) in the Performance derivative. Both of them feature a 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) torque and come with a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 6-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Performance model hits 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 6.4 seconds whereas the standard version is 0.1 seconds slower. Both Golf GTIs have an electronically-governed top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
