Many car enthusiasts regard the Mark 1 Gti to be one of the best cars ever made due its amazing handling. In fact, in 2004 The Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk I was declared the greatest car of all time by Auto Express. The first MK 1 models raised power output of the 1588 cc engine to 110 PS - 108 hp. Successive models got larger and heavier with higher levels of spec, but slightly less exciting to drive, according to many enthusiasts. MK 4 models were a significant development including the V5, V6, 4MOTION with 115 bhp (2.0) to 150 bhp (1.8T).
In 2005 the VW Golf MK5 GTI confirmed its potential by receiving the BBCs Top Gear's Car of the Year and also top Hot Hatch Award. The journalist team felt it was the first true replacement for the original Golf GTi built 25 years ago.
