Apart from the small luggage space, the Volkswagen Mk2 Golf is absolutely fabulous and runs smoothly. The power is coming out as a slope with no fast peaks, but the torque is the measure that this car is driven on and by. 229 NM and a full time 4WD give the car a special characteristics that cannot be paralleled.

At first a LHD car scared me. I must admit it took me 1-2 months to fully adjust, but now it feels natural.

The 4Wd is an absolute dream; the saying 'it's... (read more)

In 1989, VW hand-built 5000 special Golf Rallyes to qualify them for homolagation and entrance into rallying. As competition rules changed in 1989/90, most were sold as road-going cars in Germany/Mainland Europe.
I have recently bought a low mileage (60,000 miler) one owner car in almost new condition!
This car is amazing and handles like its on rails due to the rigid chassis, 4 wheel drive and sport suspension. The supercharged g60 power unit develops a smooth 160bhp and is very torquey.... (read more)
