1983 Volkswagen Golf GTi MkI

SOLD £11,200

In restored condition with sensible upgrades to the suspension and engine.  Rolling road dyno recorded 122bhp and torque of 114lb ft in May 2020

In the hands of our current owner since September 2015 this smart little MkI GTi looks the business in black with matching black and red cloth interior. First reg istered in January of 1983 when it was certainly considered a proper hot hatch and was a properly quick car, they are still highly revered today and feel quick even compared with more modern machinery. This pokey little number has been restored, partly by a previous owner before being sold and completed by Worcester Classic Cars. The restoration looks from the history file to be comprehensive with a ream of bills on file for parts dating from 2011 and 2012. The GTi was fitted with attractive Weichers front and rear strut braces in 2015 which look the part and no doubt add the cornering abilities of this hot little hatch. There are 3 old MOTs dating back to March 2001 when the car had covered 73,630 miles and was white in colour (Colour change documented on Experian from White to Black (L041) in 2009) in addition to the current MOT which is valid until May 2021 with no advisories recorded. Sitting well, with slightly uprated suspension on its retro BBS RZ X-spoke alloy wheels there is little not to like, with tidy bodywork, a smart interior and recent new headlining the car offers much for the MkI GTi enthusiast particularly with the confirmed power outputs of 122Bhp @ 6975rpm and impressive torque of 114lb ft at 4852rpm achieved when Dyno’d by BHPerformance in May 2020. Buyers please note, the car was recorded Category-C in March 2000 – however, dont let it put you off, its an old car and values were low then and it has since been restored, as evidenced by the 36 photographs of this from primer to completion on file along with the V5C, buyer’s guide, old MOTs and invoices mentioned.
