Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to your new front-wheel drive Nurburgring king: the hardcore Golf GTI Clubsport S
Before we go any further, you should know this: it’s now the fastest front-wheel drive production car to ever lap the Nurburgring. It clocked an astonishing time of 07:49:21, and unlike the previous ‘record holder’ - the Honda Civic Type R which lapped 1.4sec slower - there’s no ‘production ready prototype’ or similar caveat; the car that did the work is the real deal.
Want one? You’ll have to get in line: just 400 are being made.
