up! Celebrates Milestone
with a GTI Model!

The smallest member of the Volkswagenfamily has just celebrated a big milestone: At the end of February, the 750,000th up! rolled off the production line in Bratislava.

Volkswagen up!

Volkswagen Slovakia first started production of the city car back in 2011, which has also been available with an electric motor1 since 2013. And now, as of just a few weeks ago, the GTI2 has become the newest member of the up! family. This milestone vehicle is a red GTI. Boasting a cool 85 KW (115 bhp), this sporty little numberis capable of speeds of up to 196 km/h and is all set for a customer in Germany.

It is unmistakably a GTI. The red horizontal stripe and honeycombdesign on the grille are typical GTI features.
