Unleash the Power of Volkswagen

From the classic GTI to the formidable R32, each car is meticulously recreated with stunning detail, capturing the essence of Volkswagen’s engineering prowess. But the automotive passion doesn’t end there. GTI Racing also features a range of concept cars and classics, including the original Beetle and the iconic T1 “Samba” transporter.

Master the Art of Tuning

Step into the world of professional car customization and unleash your inner gearhead. GTI Racing offers an extensive array of visual and performance modding options, empowering you to tailor your ride to perfection. Adorn your Golf with sleek spoilers, brilliant xenon lights, aggressive wide body kits, and stylish rims. Enhance its performance with turbochargers, nitrous oxide systems, sport transmissions, upgraded brake kits, and grippy wide tires. The possibilities are limitless, allowing you to create a driving machine that reflects your unique style and racing ambitions.

Conquer Diverse Racing Challenges

Buckle up and prepare for over 70 races across six unique environments, each presenting its own set of challenges. From the bustling streets of European cities to the rugged landscapes of Baja, GTI Racing keeps you on your toes with a variety of race types. Engage in intense time trials, drift competitions, and exhilarating drag races. Master the art of Baja racing, where off-road prowess is paramount. And for a truly immersive experience, try out the new Legal Race mode, where you must obey traffic laws while pushing your car to the limit.

Embrace the Dynamic Race Surroundings

GTI Racing introduces a groundbreaking level of immersion with its fully physics-simulated race environments. Hundreds of objects on the tracks are subject to realistic physics, creating a dynamic and interactive racing experience. Use these objects to your advantage, strategically slowing down opponents or even disabling their cars. But beware, your rivals will do the same, making every race a fierce battle of wits and reflexes.

Outsmart Demanding AI

The AI drivers in GTI Racing are no pushovers. They possess a sophisticated understanding of the driving and collision physics, making them formidable opponents. Expect them to cut you off, force you off the track, and take daring shortcuts to gain an edge. Stay alert, anticipate their moves, and use your skills to outmaneuver them.

Experience Detailed Car Damage

Every contact you make with other cars or objects will leave a lasting mark on your vehicle. GTI Racing’s highly detailed damage model, based on the Xpand Rally engine, adds a layer of realism and consequence to the racing experience. Dents, scratches, and mechanical failures will accumulate, affecting your car’s performance and handling. Be cautious and avoid unnecessary collisions, or risk compromising your chances of victory.
