Exclamation First SPY shots of VW GTI MKVI / MK6 !!!

With the initial reveal of Volkswagen's Golf VI out of the way, VW
engineers have begun testing what appears to be the next-generation
GTI. The higher-performance touches are evident throughout.
Designers have done away with the horizontal slats on the standard
Golf's front fascia, in favor of a honeycomb mesh treatment similar to
current GTI. The front bumper's two outside air-ducts are straked for
dramatic effect, while ditching the fog lamps to feed more air to the
brakes. Speaking of the brakes, the calipers are painted red.

This Golf has a prominent dual exhaust system, something new to the
GTI lineup. The dual exhaust setup raised questions that this might
be a prototype for an R32 replacement, but the R32's dual pipes are
centrally mounted, and the grillework is more in keeping with prior
GTI cues. Add to this reports from industry sources claiming that the
V6-powered R32 won't be renewed in the sixth-generation Golf lineup,
and it's a certainty that we're looking at the GTI here.

VW's new global 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is expected to power the
new GTI, reportedly generating 211 hp thanks to the addition of a new
variable valve-lift system.

Sources report that the GTI will make a veiled debut as a concept at
the Paris Motor Show this October.

Theres a few problems with doing this.
1: you loose the wheel well for the spare.
2: you run the risk of owners burning there shins on the exhaust pipes when loading the boot. (there has been quite a few cases of this in the past)
3: you cannot fit a towbar to trailer your track day car or your concours mk1
