Volkswagen has confirmed the development of a production version of the mini hot hatch Up! GT.

One of the many variations of the Up! concept that was unveiled at last year’s Frankfurt motor show, Volkswagen emphasized that the Up! GT will drive and perform very closely to the original Golf GTI, which Volkswagen enthusiasts were no doubt happy to hear.

Details on the Up! GT are limited but we know that it will be motivated by a turbocharged three-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed gearbox, producing 110-hp. While the numbers are modest, we’re expect to see a lot of Up! GT city cars darting through city traffic in the future.
