After last week's sneak preview, Volkswagen has taken the wraps off the Golf GTI Clubsport which will receive its public debut tomorrow at the Wörthersee GTI Meeting.

Developed to celebrate the Golf GTI's 40th anniversary, the three-door Clubsport concept comes with a more aggressive body which will be virtually carried over to the production car set to arrive sometime in 2016. While the concept has 19-inch alloys, the road-going version will be downgraded to an 18-inch set and should come with a black roof combined with an Oryx White body.

The most powerful Golf GTI on sale today is the Performance version which delivers 230 PS (169 kW) from its 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine but the Clubsport concept has been upgraded to 265 PS (195 kW). There's also going to be an overboost function providing an extra 10% of power for a brief moment.

Power in the concept is sent to the front axle through a six-speed DSG and an electronically-controlled XDS differential while the production version could be offered with a six-speed manual transmission. Performance numbers have not been disclosed, but the Golf GTI Clubsport will obviously be significantly quicker than the Golf GTI Performance which sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.4 seconds and tops out at an electronically-capped 155 mph (250 km/h).
