There's some speculation these may be leaked photos of the new GTI. Nothing is available on VW's Media site yet though. I realize that pics of the MK5 Golf in both 4-door and 2-door are yesterday's news, but these are specifically the GTI.

There are no specs available yet on the GTI, but I'd expect it may offer a more potent version of the boosted 2.0L and then possibly the 3.2L VR6 eventually.

I'm usually not the first person to shout photoshop, but something about the black trim looks like it's painted onto the picture not the car.

i'm not a huge fan of the black trim they have on the skirts and lips of most luxury cars now. The plastic trim might be family resemblance to audi, there was a pic posted here of an audi here not too long ago with the same black trim above the front bumper.

Re: Possibly the first photos of the new MKV GTI...

emulous - there are several posters on VWVortex speculating a photoshop as well. It's yet to be determined though...

One 'vortexer went so far as to 'bet his left nut' that it's a p-chop. Another suggested he'd "have to say goodbye to (his) beloved nut." They're a nutty bunch over there.

Hmmmm, the first pic looks a lot better than the second. Something about the wheels just isn't right. I don't know about that black part of the front end. I thought it would look better than this, kinda bummin' it over here if it's for real. Maybe I just need to sleep on it. Or drive it.

In my opinion Randy - too much of it looks real for the parts that are iffy to be photoshopped. I think a lot of the stuff I'm unsure of could be the fact that the .jpg file format doesn't deal well when compressing red.

Re: Possibly the first photos of the new MKV GTI..

I definitly like it. The blacked out headlights look alot meaner, the front bumper is pretty nice, and I actually don't think the wheels will look too bad. The black side skirts and rear bumper really need to be painted though. The black painted front looks pretty nice, but a little out of place unless they continued the theme throughout the whole car. Overall tho, i give it

The steering wheel rocks!

I think the car looks great, I don't care what anyone else says.


I will be interesting to see how the black trim will look on dark colors other then black (probably not good).

Re: Definitely the first photos of new MKV GTI...

I changed the original thread title.


I think about half the posters on VWVortex ended up convincing themselves that they were merely photoshopped.


I guess they don't like it.
