On the Surface: This is a 1986 Volkswagen Golf GTI CC Convertible, owned by The Vendor since May 2019 when he acquired it from our Spring Classic Car Auction of that year. As summer approaches, it’s back on the market, ready for the next owner to enjoy.

Maintenance & History: With a substantial history file accompanying the vehicle, this Golf GTI CC Convertible boasts meticulous care. Old MOT’s dating back to 1997 provide a glimpse into its well-documented past. Invoices totalling around £5,000 reflect the investment made in parts and labour, ensuring its reliability and performance. The original V.A.G Service bookpack adds to its authenticity, containing the car’s instruction manual and service directory.

The Model: The Golf GTI holds a special place in the automotive world, debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show in March 1975. Renowned for its exceptional build quality, engineering prowess, and driving dynamics, the MK1 GTI set a new standard for compact performance cars. Its 1.8-litre engine delivers a spirited performance, achieving 0-62mph in 10.5 seconds, an impressive feat for its era especially when you take into account that a Ferrari 308 GTS got to the same speed in about 8 seconds. The ‘Christmas Cabriolet’ earned it’s name reportedly because 750 units were produced in the run up up to Christmas 1985.

Sale Insight: The Vendor’s decision to part ways with this Golf GTI CC Convertible presents an opportunity to purchase a Golf that is priced to sell, rare and an investment. Don’t miss the chance to make this Golf your own.
