Volkswagen has published a series of peculiar teasers on social media platform X, hinting at what could be a special-edition Golf GTI that revives the Rabbit badge – and it’s set to be revealed as soon as next week.
The Volkswagen News official X account has published two teasers, the first referencing the Rabbit – a nameplate with strong significance to the VW brand – and the second referencing “[working] in the garage on a very special model”, which would appear to refer to either a limited-edition or singular concept vehicle.
Rabbit was the name used for the first-generation Golf in North America, first launched in 1975. However, the GTI version didn’t launch until 1983, or 40 years ago this year.
The Rabbit nameplate has subsequently been used a number of times in the US market, including on the Mk5 Golf and then a GTI Rabbit Edition for the Mk7.
