Mystery Volkswagen Golf GTI prototype spied on the 'Ring, very likely the Club Sport version

Yesterday shortly before the Nürburgring was ready to close the track for the day, a mystery Volkswagen Golf GTI prototype attempted to make a secret run on the last lap of the day, but our man with the camera was still there and got these pictures you see here.

The prototype reveals changes to the front bumper with a new lower lip spoiler and a massive rear spoiler. It also looks lower compared to the standard GTI, riding on large five-spoke alloys. We can also see seats from the Golf R and a safety roll cage.

There is also a tape running from the front bonnet going into the car, with co-driver seen checking his computer which is probably linked to the engine.

According to photographer the car sounded very powerful and there clearly were some changes done to the engine, possibly also to the exhaust. The standard Golf GTI packs 217bhp from a 2.o-litre turbo petrol and 227bhp in the GTI Performance version.

The test car only did one round on the ring and then was escorted all the way back to their test facility.

The car is wearing Wiechers stickers, hinting clearly that Wiechers-Sport, a German auto racing team based in Nienburg is involved with this new project or it could be also their own little project.

The Golf GTI Club Sport is likely to debut at the popular Wörthersee event in Austria on May 28.
