      That's a well disguised car. I can't tell anything about how it will look.

      The GTI will be 250 - 300lbs less than the Mk6.

      Jamie's article on the MQB says the platform will be 88-132 lbs lighter. Where is the extra weight loss coming from?

      New welding techniques "around 150 pounds lighter than the Mk6 (which is essentially a slightly modified Mk5) thanks to molten-molded, extra high-strength steel used throughout the chassis, along with reworked suspension components, lightened engines and auxiliary bits. "

      I believe the 88-132 may be for Golf?

      I am quoting the below Top Gear Article.

      The extra weight savings over the current GTI is stated to be 220lbs due to aluminum roof.

      Ok I stretched a little on my 250-300lbs... I just need to loose a bit of weight.

      In reality this is the next gen from the MK5.

      I am excited if it is as described.

      230HP, 2850lbs, mechanical LSD.

      As long as they can keep the NVH at MK6 levels sign me up.
      My thoughts exactly. And it isn't really too soon because it will be a while before it makes it to the states after its release in Europe.

      Top Gear MK7 Article
      Thanks for posting up the Top Gear article. Mk7 seems like a pretty exciting evolution of the Golf/GTi. I may just hold on to the R until then. Hopefully the Mk7 comes out with the a la carte options like the 2010 GTi instead of these stupid packages.

      Yeah the camo disquise does a good job of what it's meant to do so honestly if you told me this was an MKVI I'd believe it.

      I'm sure the styling won't be drastically different than the current MKVI which to me is a good thing.
      So will the MKVII's actually be sold in 2013 or are we going to have to go through the usual waiting game of it coming out a year or two later, after they release it in Europe?

    19. 02-24-2012 12:34 PM #44
      looking at the front end, I see the corporate headlights, ala Passat. Maybe someone can photoshop a Passat front end on a Golf VI and then you get the Golf VII.

      That's pretty standard... its a test car.

      Even if this isnt a base Golf they probably didn't want to show any design cues from the headlights anyway.

      Projectors... LED's etc.

      Besides on the MK6 GTI and Golf TDI its an option so I would think the MK7 would be the same way.

      The longer wheel base gave the designers wings. The car apparently has a cab-forward design allowing a steeply sloped windshield which in return leads to lower roofline. Also, the cammo cannot hide the strong sholder lines. I like what I see.
      I am a VW Fan, but above all I am a Car Fan.

      I do not like the body of the mk V and mk VI compared to my Mk IV. The back of the hood is way too tall, making it look pudgy. The lights/front face on the Mk VI is better than the Mk V, however.
