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

Published: 27 Oct 2016

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.
