Hot hatch fans eat your heart out - the first official pictures of the Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI have hit the web ahead of its reveal in Paris on Thursday.
Although this is officially a concept car, the road-going car that's due to hit world markets early next year should be just about identical to what you see here.
Same goes for the technical specifications. Here we see a new 2-litre turbopetrol engine that pushes 162kW and 350Nm - up from the current model's 155kW/280Nm outputs.
But wait - as they say in the infomercials - there's more. VW will reportedly offer a performance package that bumps the power up to 169kW.
