The Volkswagen apprentices have revealed their custom Golf GTI Wolfsburg Edition at this year’s Worthersee Tour.

A group of a dozen apprentices between the ages of 18 and 23 from the German automaker’s Wolfsburg plant presented the modified Golf GTI. The build was done over the course of nine months and features a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that has had its performance boosted from 227 hp to 375 hp. Visual performance modifications include a carbon fiber air box and a hand-welded stainless steel exhaust.

On the inside, the red and black theme continues with Recaro bucket seats wrapped in leather and GTI tartan with red stitching. Other details include a handcrafted center console with an integrated iPhone docking station, and a 24-inch LED TV in the trunk with a PlayStation 4.
