The police stopped him on the way and – after a brief glance at his CiTi 3.6 – asked him to step out. As Jamie told me this story, he was holding his hands in front of his face and is probably still surprised himself at how the story ends. “My passenger and I had to lean against the bonnet of the car with our arms spread – like criminals – while the police searched us. After they saw our papers, they told me to open the bonnet. I thought to myself, it’s over.”
But before I even got the engine compartment open, the officers’ eyes lit up. They laughed and hooted: “That’s exactly what we wanted to see! We saw your stories on Instagram and wanted to see this car for ourselves!” They congratulated Jamie on his car, who, by this point was completely confused, and thanked him for his commitment to this special project.
Jamie commented that the whole story was “totally crazy”.
“A powerful car, the Golf GTI TCR”¹
Jamie is, of course, excited by the 290 PS of the newly introduced Golf GTI TCR concept car. “Whow, it is indeed a powerful car”, he told me – grinning once again.
The concept car, which goes into series production at the end of the year, is the most powerful and, with a high speed of 264 km/h, the fastest road version in the current model programme of the GTI family. With a sporty tuned and adaptive chassis control (DCC) suspension system, a mechanical front differential lock and an Akrapovič exhaust system, it will ignite the excitement of any GTI fan.
