Tanner Foust Knows a Thing or Two About Hooning Hot Hatches [W/Video]
What happens when you mix a host from Top Gear (the American one), a brand new 2015 Volkswagen GTI, and enough GoPro cameras to triple said car’s value? Well, you get the latest promotional film from Volkswagen, and we have to admit – it’s pretty epic. Volkswagen has announced a new deal for anyone who buys or leases a seventh-generation GTI before the end of the month. Pick up the $25,000 hatchback and Volkswagen will throw in a free GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition. Retailing alone for $399, it’s not a bad deal, especially if you’re in the market for a sporty hatch.

To celebrate the momentous promotion, VW roped in Top Gear star and rallycross ace, Tanner Foust, to hoon a GTI around city streets, back alleys, and a car wash. The whole event was captured on – you guessed it – a load of GoPro cameras to dazzling effect.
