So strong is the brand and its popularity that VW started an event for GTi lovers and fans to gather for five days in May in Karnten in Austria. The event is called GTI-Meet in Reifnitz at Worthersee and one of the highlights of the event would be showcasing the new variations of the GTI. This might not necessarily be new models or engines but would include designs and such. This seemed to be quite a common trend with car makers in Europe where they combine with the popular brands (not necessarily automotive related) and come up with crazy designs which many would like.

In this year’s edition, 2 German icon combined to form one of the most interesting collaborations ever. VW and sports giant adidas. Take note that this is not a concept car or design and the Golf GTI adidas will start selling in June. Another model which is to be unveiled is the GTI Excessive, typically a concept sport car. Apart from that, they will also be showcasing 2 classic GTIs which is the 1976 version, otherwise known as the original and first edition as well as Golf Citi MK1. This is the limited edition and is the last edition of the first generation. This year’s motto is GTI History Meets GTI Present and future.

The GTI adidas would surely be quite an attraction considering that it is seen as 3 big brands, adidas, VW and GTI and it comes with nice looking adidas livery and customized features like ‘Serron’ 18 inch wheels as well as customized seats. About the Golf GTI Excessive, one thing for sure, it will be sweet surprise for most as this is what VW had always done. So pack your bags if you can and head out to Austria to join the festival, otherwise view the pictures to see what you missed.
