It’s hard to think that the Volkswagen GTI has been with us for forty years. In that time, the we’ve seen everything from 2.0 liter, 115 horsepower 8-valve Mk3s to an insane GTI concept car with a mid-mounted W12 engine. In between, there’s been a number of variations on the hot hatch theme, including this car, the Mk2 Golf GTI G60. For those of you non-VW aficionados, the G60 pertains to what’s under the hood, in this case, the 1.8 liter supercharged inline-4 with 160 horsepower that saw duty in the Corrado when it debuted and later in the rare Golf G60 Limited. This GTI G60 for sale in Switzerland has had a complete overhaul and looks sharp sitting on aftermarket, deeper offset Ronal alloys.

We featured a Golf G60 back in 2013 from 4Star Classics. That car was an impressive, low-mileage original. This restored example is being offered at a steep price, perhaps a bit indicative of the Swiss market for such vehicles. Even if a G60 was imported to the US, I doubt we’d be seeing $30,000 plus for such a vehicle. You’d have to really want a unique Mk2 with the other choices out there at the price point.
