Volkswagen has just announced a new ‘Edition 35′ version of the original hot hatch, the GTI. Celebrating three and a half decades since the first GTI launched back in 1976, this new model gets unique front and rear bumpers and custom wheels. There’s also special ’35′ badging on the fenders, door sills and on the seats.

Vee-dub enthusiasts will also appreciate the added, power, with the 210-hp 2.0 TFSI engine from the standard GTI now putting out 235-hp.

The car will officially debut at the annual Wörthersee GTI meet on June 1st. On sale in Germany this summer, Volkswagen has yet to announce if a 35th anniversary edition GTI will be sold in the U.S.
