Anytime I think about featuring a Volkswagen Golf or Jetta Mk4 on GCFSB, I still get chills from the 2000 GTI and its rash of problems. But after my 2.0 left the line, a few interesting models came to fruition, the most notable being the R32. This particular R32 for sale from our friends at Nothing Leaves Stock was commissioned by an enthusiast who wanted a usable sleeper. The work was done in-house and in Black Magic Pearl with the outstanding BBS CH wheels, I’d say the look was pulled off successfully.

The price of this R32 might be a shocker to those shopping stock examples, but this isn’t your ordinary R32. It’s a car that certainly isn’t for everyone. A lot of time and money has been invested and for the right VW fan, it will tick all of the right boxes. Having owned a 2000 2.0, I’d really be curious to see how something like this performs. I’m also a big fan of the look, as it isn’t your typical Reflex Silver or Deep Blue Pearl R32.
