Golf Mk VI GTI And GTD
Volkswagen is celebrating the 40th birthday of the most successful European car of all time: the Golf. More than 30 million vehicles of the best-seller have been sold and from the first to the seventh generation, the Golf has been a pioneer of technological progress.
Volkswagen's all-new Golf is making its motor show debut this week in Paris, with the seventh-generation of the evergreen model displaying a new look plus new technology, engines, safety and infotainment features.
Thousands of Golf GTI owners of all ages, plus a great many other enthusiasts of Volkswagen Group cars, from Audi RS4s and SEAT Ibiza Cupras to Volkswagen T5 vans, will soon be converging on Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground for this year's GTI International.
When they began their apprenticeships at Volkswagen, the four young women and five young men never dreamt such a project would form part of their vocational training.
Volkswagen is boosting the appeal and value of its Golf line-up, with customers ordering a GT, GTI, GTD or R model from today gaining leather upholstery as standard.
A 35th birthday can mark the onset of a mini midlife crisis, the tipping point between the big 3-0 and even bigger 4-0.
