2019 model year Golf GTI TCR with 290 PS 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. Very rare 3 door, these were only available for a short period after the order books opened in March 2019 after which 5 door was the only format available. Pure grey paintwork with TCR specific red/grey/black cloth/alcantara interior. List price was under £40,000 so not subject to the luxury car tax which many of the 2020 model year cars will be. For the 2020 model year, an Akrapovic exhaust became standard but in typical VW style the list price was increased by £3000 to £37665. This meant that even if you added the cheaper of the 2 Performance Packs (Reifnitz 19" wheels and normal tyres), you would breach the £40k barrier and be paying an extra £320 per year for 5 years (£1600) as a result of an exhaust, which due to also having to comply with noise regulations, is little different from the one on the 2019 model year TCR as my video demonstrates. You could of course choose to not have the Performance Pack and spend £2334 on other options but if you did you'd have a far inferior hot hatch. So for me, today, the 2019 model year cars specced correctly make a lot more sense and if you still want an Akrapovic, go buy one for under £2000 from an aftermarket supplier.

This car was offered to me because the owner (a longstanding motor trade friend) saw from social media that I was looking to buy a TCR for myself. I was aware having made the video with this car that you can see above, that a 3 door looked amazing but I wanted ultimate practicality so was intent on a 5 door. However having now spent some time with this one I am not so sure practicality is all that.
The spec of this car is just perfect for the true enthusiast and out of 97 currently on Autotrader, there is not one that is identical. I personally would only buy a Performance Pack car as DCC and 19s are essential and were key to the Clubsport S taking the 'ring record. The advantage of the more expensive PP fitted to this car is that you get lightweight Pretoria wheels and Michelin PS Cup 2 tyres which are some of the finest fast road/track tyres money can buy. Another feature with either PP is the removal of the speed limiter thereby raising the top speed from 155 to 164 mph.
This TCR also has the optional black painted roof which makes an amazing looking car look even better.
Condition is as you'd expect as new, it even still smells like new too.
