The Volkswagen Golf GTI Excessive is an angry little car with a chip on its shoulder, ready to show the world that small autos are not to be messed with. This retooled bad boy was unveiled at the Austrian owners’ meet recently—and everyone wants a piece.

With a new exhaust system that see the engine boosted from 207bhp to 211bhp, this car has a wider track requiring three-centimeter wheelarch extensions which means that the Golf GTI Excessive now houses 19-inch alloys with bigger brakes.
