All the lowdown on Number 41

VW GOLF G60 Edition (Not GTi VR6 8V)

A very opportunity to own a piece of Volkswagen

I am a VW enthusiast and have mostly VW 16v GTi’s. I had already spent looking for the best MKII GTi when I re-discovered this gem of a I’d dreamt of owning one of in my teens, but never thought see one in the UK.

A brief history. The Limited a 210bhp, 142mph four drive Super Golf was by Volkswagen Motorsport in 1989. very recently this is the ever Volkswagen offered for by VW and is a masterpiece of technical ingenuity.

71 of these individually numbered, fast and civilised sports were ever built. single one was hand-built and sold to coming off the production line. Two models were made, one has been crashed and the other is on at the Wolfsburg Museum, Germany.

The is a subtle mixture of five Golf, Syncro and Rallye, by Volkswagen Motorsport at the rate of two per week, which explained the tag of nearly ВЈ25,000.

I bought Number 41 of 71 early in and cherished it until I sold it in

For the enthusiasts amongst you, I tried to provide a comprehensive of Number 41 below, yet those of you are genuinely interested will want to know more.


Very Good Appearance – It looks as it did the day it left VW MOTORSPORT in Hanover Wolfsburg!) except for the professional hand drive conversion, a lifetime-guaranteed hand-built stainless exhaust system, and a Fort style alarm/immobiliser system. It has the proper Blaupunkt Montreal with security card, and the Triangle VW First Aid Kit in the boot. are also some subtle under the bonnet.

Original VW such as G60 Master Key, and information pack, and VW Press tax disc holder are also

Historical Value – car is already a piece of motoring being just about the production VW Golf ever, clear classic credentials. it was the only Limited to ever be imported to the UK by Volkswagen. I doubt an will arise again to own a car this – no exaggeration.

Security System – 832SU – Central and door locking – two immobilisers and certificate for insurance

Unbelievable Specification – range of extras including Assisted Steering, 15 BBS Split Rim Hella Half Darkened Lamp Lenses, Sunroof, and Plus the really special like full black interior, comprising of heated seats, door cards, wheel, hand brake and lever gaiters. Anti-lock diameter disc brakes all

Traction Control. Four operated windows. Electrically and heated wing mirrors. operated headlamp range Very special blue glass all round.

Driving The heart of the car is a supercharged and intercooled of the standard 1.8L 16v twin cam developing 210bhp at 6500rpm and of torque at 5000rpm. Therefore, the is superb, with spot on provided by the four-wheel-drive system, and the car genuinely tight and fresh a tell tale sign it has been well looked and a testament to the very low mileage. car really does drive new.

It’ll bring a smile to any driving enthusiasts

Service History – in mind that having not 49k miles by 2006, not a great of servicing has been required. the annual checks and fluid etc. As Number 41 was originally by VAG for the first two years of its life, all was undertaken by them. Since I have some good records from the various that have worked on the The last service was done on 18 May and I spent over ВЈ1000 a on servicing and maintenance.

All the stickers are present – in the door shut, filler etc. hence no accident I have had the car fully checked out by VW and Car enthusiasts, and there is no evidence of any damage or indeed any major at all.

I have never seen a Golf in better condition.

Wheels – 6.5J x 15 BBS rim alloys in excellent condition and have plenty of tread.

– This interior is the best I have seen in a with absolutely no sagging, or holes and a firm drivers bolster. MFA also works There are a few minor marks the trim within the boot only.

Performance – The has the same power to weight as that of a modern Lotus but with handling assisted by ABS and EDL (Electronic Differential Lock Traction Control). It’s over the quarter mile than the legendary Lancia HF Integrale, and more powerful the contemporary BMW M3. This gives a of comparison for this very car.

And it’s all wrapped-up in a understated, practical yet luxurious, door shell. The ultimate Q
