The eagerly awaited Volkswagen GTI Edition 35 may not after all, be coming to North America. According to an insider at Volkswagen of America, the U.S division is not interested in the GTI Edition 35.

This special edition GTI will come with a sporty front end, wheels and interior, as well as an extra 25-hp making a total of 235-hp in the hatchback.

This VW was created to celebrate 35 years of the GTI, however the car has only been in the U.S for 30.

Volkswagen of America said they don’t feel the need for this version to boost sales. Furthermore, the dropped air dam is too low for American roads. Many enthusiasts can do without the bumper revision, however the extra horsepower is what will truly be missed by many in the U.S.

Stay tuned for more info!
