Top Gear’s Speed Week: Chris Harris vs VW Golf GTI Clubsport S

“It’s just one of those super-extreme cars that the world needs.” Watch the video here

As Chris Harris rightly asserts, Golfs are considered quite worthy, a bit stodgy. Not so this new Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S, one of his star cars from the 2016 Top Gear Speed Week.

Have a watch of the video above as we strap Chris into the stripped out, front-wheel-drive GTI hatch and let him loose around the Red Bull Ring.

For the full Speed Week experience, you’ll need a new copy of Top Gear magazine, out now. In it, we take 18 of the year’s finest performance cars, and end up at the 2.7-mile Austrian circuit. Some light drifting occurs. And Lederhosen.

Oh, the cars: the Jaguar F-Type SVR, Renault RS16, Audi TT RS, Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, Mclaren 675LT Spider, Ferrari 488 GTB, Porsche 911 R, Aston Martin Vulcan, and a NASCAR all star.
