Mk1 GTIs grow more fully appreciated as classics each day, the Mk2 retains its affordable performance status in a package that is still superior to the Mk1 in the ways VW intended at its inception – more space and more comfort while retaining fun performance and German looks. This example takes those last two elements to extremes, bringing a modified G60 engine under German flag stripes front and rear. He doesn’t mention what suspension is helping it sit so low, but whatever it is is matched with Scirocco brakes to create a package that should be able to handle at least some of the increased speed and power. With well over 300hp to the front wheels, it’s not going to be able to handle all of it, mirroring the exterior’s placement on the edge of out-of-control. This is fast and loud in Mk2 form.

We often look at cars and think of how we would modify or add to them, but here my main requests would be subtraction. Removing the nitrous and all the stickers would leave a GTI that still has plenty of attention-grabbing visuals and performance without being too tunerboyish. The seller kindly avoids asking for what he’s put in and is looking for $7k, which is close to what you’ll pay for decent, stock Mk1 GTI these days. Through an objective lens, this Mk2 surpasses the Mk1 in just about every category other than cult status and is a nice reminder that there are still some great VW performance values out there.
