    Never knew there was an electric Golf, but since it has just 20HP and can't even hit 60 (and, due to it being electric, there most likely wouldn't be any possibility of tuning the engine if it was in GT), I think this would just be too slow to be enjoyable to if it was added to GT.

    ...Sorta glad to see VW left this in the sin bin to be honest. Look at how useless it is - if it ever went into a serious production run, it would sully the bullet-proof reputation of the "Golf" brand...

    Still, who bought those 120 examples???? Buy in haste, regret in leisure, eh?

    Maybe people who like really low speed racing would have some fun with it.

    It has 23.4 hp and a top speed of 62 mph (100 km/h), yes I agree it might not be the fastest car, but gran turismo has a great mix of fast & slow cars so speed isn't everything
