Last time we saw pictures of the two-door hatchback it was going through winter testing. When it arrives, the 2013 model will be the first car built on VW’s new MQB architecture. The new GTI is shaping up to be the hottest hatch to come from the German automaker yet. With a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine making 260 hp it will already be the more powerful version to date.
That paired with the fact that it will lose weight thanks to being build on the MQB platform means it’s shaping up to be a real rocket. In the latest batch of photos we see the car’s actual headlights and what appears to be its production side mirrors.
