The GTI Wolfsburg Edition is limited to 2,000 units and will be the first to go on sale in this quarter. It costs 25,095 USD for the 6-speed manual version or 26,195 USD for the version equipped with the 6-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox. It rides on 18-inch Laguna wheels and comes with red-stitched carpeted floor mats and retro-themed golf ball shifter knob.

The GTI Driver's Edition will be available in 3,000 units from Q2 and is priced from 29,695 USD with the manual or 30,795 USD with the automatic. It has the Sunroof and Navigation package, as well as the same alloy wheels, shifter knob, floor mats, along with partial leather seat coverings. This version comes bundled with a Certificate of Authenticity, hat, parking sign and keychain.

As a reminder, the U.S.-spec Golf VII will enter production in Q1 2014 in Puebla.
