    We got the chance to speak to some engineers and product planners yesterday about the upcoming Mk8 GTI (expect some more to come out of that as we pore over our notes). Today, VW seems to be in the mood for more GTI talk because they’ve released a fairly thorough history of the car’s seven...

    The latest edition of Volkswagen’s ongoing throwback Thursday series, VW is taking a look at the Biagini Passo. Among the rarer models, the car essentially took a chassis from a Mk2 Golf Country and mated it to the body of a Mk1 cabriolet. From VW’s post: With headlights and taillights...

    Facebook is awash in great renderings of improved and modified cars that would, if money were no object, be amazing in real life. Sadly, money is an object and reality rarely has patience for the fantasies of renderings. But sometimes reality forgets to be a bummer, as is the case with this...

    “I told the lads down at the Phirm to sort it out,” says Richard “Wallye” Walcott, owner of this gorgeous 1989 red G60 Rallye, proving that Guy Ritchie is more of a documentarian than a maker of fictional films. As the winner of Best Rallye at a show dedicated to Golf Rallyes, it’s safe to say...

    Since the Up! was announced, nearly, it was compared to the MkI Golf thanks to its diminutive size and its equally diminutive power figures. But the MkII Golf is also a fair comparison point. The 8 valve GTI made round 110 hp and weighed in at a just 2,000 lbs (give or take a golden retriever)...

    Honestly, it would be unnecessary and unkind to call this 1985 1.8-liter GTI ratty, but there are a couple of things that qualify the car for this series. Despite looking pretty good, the GTI is showing signs of its age. The paint is, apparently, a little tired and there are some signs of a...

    The MKII GTI will forever be revered for winning Motor Trend's Car of the Year in 1985 . To put things in perspective, the CoY award for the hot hatch was sandwiched between the 1984 Chevy Corvette (not too shabby) and the 1986 Ford Taurus (wait, what?). Volkswagen's big win was quite a...

    I’m normally not a fan of four-wheel-drive. As a rule, I think it’s a way for automakers to frighten people into buying cars that are heavier and no more capable. Today, though, that all goes out the window. That’s because today’s find of the day is this 1990 Golf Country that’s being sold in...
