The company has just revealed it is planning something special for this year’s event, and has released this teaser image to prove it. Under the covers sits a unique new Mk7 Golf GTI which has been created by 13 Volkswagen trainees.

“I have respect for our trainees who have built with so much ambition and perseverance their dream car. At the same time shows the W√∂rthersee project, the great value we place at Volkswagen on training and qualification of young colleagues.”
