VW Golf MK1 16VT

Engineering Speed

The Mk1 Golf GTi was a revelation in modern motoring and marked a turning point for affordable performance. The taught chassis and formidable power plant in a family sized hatch back meant dropping the kids to school followed by a blat out of hell down your favourite B road was suddenly possible, even if it meant the groceries in the boot had been turned to mush by the end of the journey.
