The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport is another hot GTI we won’t get

in Car Nerd by

New anniversary model celebrates the GTI’s 40th birthday

  • 265 PS special edition accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 5.9 seconds
  • An overboost function increases power to more than 290 PS  for a short time
  • Expressive exterior design features new front bumper, side skirts, rear diffuser and multi-part roof spoiler

Wolfsburg, September 9, 2015 – At the beginning of 2016, the iconic sporty compact—the Golf GTI—celebrates its 40th birthday. Volkswagen will mark this historic event with a dramatic special edition: the new Golf GTI Clubsport. Volkswagen will present the production version at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, offering a first look at the most powerful production GTI ever.

The company that invented the GTI is thus continuing the tradition of anniversary models, as exclusive special editions also marked the 20th, 25th, 30th and 35th birthdays. The turbocharged and direct-injection engine in the anniversary model delivers an output of 195 kW / 265 PS, 35 PS more than the previous most powerful Golf GTI. That isn’t all, however. For a short time—for about 10 seconds—the driver can increase engine power by an additional 10 per cent to more than 290 PS using an overboost function. This added power is activated simply by pressing the throttle fully.

The Golf GTI Clubsport sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds with a 6-speed manual gearbox; with the optional 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DSG), the time is reduced to 5.9 seconds. The Golf GTI Clubsport has a top speed of 155 mph with both transmissions.  Despite all this power and performance, the car is frugal: the manual transmission car has fuel consumption of 33.8 mpg (equivalent to 160 g/km CO2), which improves to 34.8 mpg (155 g/km CO2) with the DSG gearbox.

Not only has the anniversary model got more power, but Volkswagen has also extensively revised the design, equipment and aerodynamics. Due to the high power output and significantly improved downforce, the Golf GTI Clubsport has groundbreaking handling properties at high speeds and breathtaking cornering speeds.

The Golf GTI Clubsport is painted in “Oryx White” (other colors available), with the roof contrasting in black. The exterior designers created a completely new front bumper, new side sills, a new rear diffuser, a new multi-part roof spoiler and exclusive forged aluminum-alloy wheels for the anniversary model. These features immediately make the anniversary model stand out from the regular GTI models.

In terms of style, the side profile of the Golf GTI Clubsport is based on the original GTI: the first generation was characterized by a wide black trim stripe on the side between the front and rear wheelarches at sill level. This stripe is replicated on the side of the anniversary model, paying homage to the 1976 Golf GTI, and is enhanced with “Clubsport” lettering. The black trim stripe is continued at the front around the air scoop incorporated in the front bumper. The optional “Brescia” 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels were specially designed for the new Golf GTI Clubsport , while the standard 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are also a new design. Another special detail is the high-gloss black door mirror caps.

A couple of months ago I featured this townhouse project by British architecture, interior and furniture design firm Minale + Mann, and thought I would share another because these folks have such a great eye for colour and scale. Love the “Farrow & Ball” shades in this one, and the kitchen is a DREAM. I only wish there were more photos.

Another look at Kemble Interiors

in Design Nerd by

It has been a very long time since we last featured the bold spaces of Kemble Interiors. Mostly Palm Beach glam packed with bright colours and patterns which is not a style I’m generally drawn to, the Kemble ladies can knock out other styles as well. Flavours that are more neutral as well as Hollywood Regency designs I am quite taken with and these rooms are among my favourites. I totally love the dining room above, despite its traditional vibe. Must be the black painted wainscoting with graphic floral wallpaper above 😉

An update, an award and another giveaway

An update, an award and another giveaway

We’ve got another great giveaway for you today! But first, a quick update.

As I write this blog post, we’re in Nanaimo (a seaside town on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia) preparing for our boys’ first Easter hunt. We can’t wait to see the look on their little faces as we send them on a wild chase for colorful eggs and chocolate bunnies.

We’ve been a little quiet over here the past weeks. And for good reason. Nicole has taken an exciting new job at an organization she’s been wanting to be a part of for years – so there’s been some big adjustments on the home front. Because of her new position, our travels will likely be limited over the next few months – which is actually just fine with us because British Columbia is THE place to be during the summer months.

Next week, I’ll be visiting the city of Boston for the first time.

I’ve heard great things about Beantown and hope to take in as many sights as I can during my short stay. I’ve also scored tickets to the Boston Red Sox home opener, so I will finally be able to cross off ‘watch a Red Sox game at Fenway Park’ from my bucket list. I’ve dreamed of visiting Fenway Park since I was a little boy – so I’m super excited to visit this legendary stadium.

Do you have any tips or advice for a first time visitor to Boston? Share your thoughts in the comments section below – I’d love to hear from you.

Earlier this year, we wrote a post about how we’re going to make 2015 great. One of my goals for 2015 was to visit 5 ski resorts this season. We managed to visit 3 ski resorts in 3 weeks, which was a lot fun, but we fell short of the goal by one (we managed to get a few visits to Whistler Blackcomb). It was an unseasonably warm winter and many of the coastal mountains we’re out of operation by early February – which made things quite challenging.

That said, this past winter will go down as one of our best yet. It reminded us that winter should be embraced, not escaped.

We had our best wedding anniversary to date in Lake Louise, we went ice climbing at Big White, we went dog sledding in the Canadian Rockies and we took our boys ice skating on a frozen lake in Jasper National Park.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from our winter adventures.

Report: Top Gear UK to sign another three year contract

in Car Nerd by
Report: Top Gear UK to sign another three year contract Enthusiasts of British Prime Equipment, like yours truly, will be content to listen to that the BBC will be signing the trio on for an further three many years by deal. So that there fairly significantly ensures there will be the world’s most admired motoring demonstrate for that duration.

Prime Gear sadly has been the bearer of bad consideration, from Jeremy Clarkson’s bogus report of dropping the n-bomb to the controversy more than the Patagonia special, where Jezza’s registration plate on his Porsche 928 was “H982 FKL,” which was interpreted as a reference to the 1982 Falklands War.

Both way, Best Gear will soldier on. As it need to.

Want FREE Aeroplan Miles? Another giveaway… for you!

Aeroplan Anniversary Giveway

We always celebrate our wedding anniversary by taking a trip, even if it’s a simple weekend getaway. Our shared passion for travel is one of the things that keeps our relationship strong, so it’s only fitting that travel is a part of our anniversary.

Two years ago, we celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary at the very same location where we were married in Mexico in 2008. It was a very memorable trip, one that allowed us time to reflect on all that had happened in 5 short years.

It was a real eye opener watching our 15 month old boy walk on the very same beach where we said “I do” only a couple years prior.

We already have plans for our 10 year anniversary – a return back to the same resort in Mexico with our boys (who will be 6 and 4 at that time – I can’t believe we’ll have boys that old?!). For our 15 year anniversary, we’ve already committed to doing a trip to Southern Africa to go on a safari.


Okay, let’s get back on topic.

This past summer, our good friends at Aeroplan turned 30 – a huge milestone for any company. To celebrate, Aeroplan has a BIG giveaway starting today AND they are giving our readers a chance to win 3 separate prizes.

Over the next 30 days Aeroplan is giving away 10 million Miles!

There are 10 grand prizes of 500,000 miles and mini draws with 500,000 miles in gift cards to be won. That’s a lot of Aeroplan Miles up for grabs.
