One car that sticks in my mind which I have yet to try on for size is the Mk3 Volkswagen GTI VR6. Having owned a 1998 GTI 2.0, I yearned for the increased power of the six cylinder variant at times but knew it was all but out of reach for a younger motorist like myself at the time. The VR6 really took the hot hatchback formula and kicked it up a notch, transforming an otherwise sedate looking Mk3 Golf into a performer that could run with the big dogs. It also paved the way for more refined hatchbacks, such as the MINI Cooper S, Mercedes C-Class Sportcoupe and CLC and the BMW 1 series hatchback. This 1996 GTI VR6 for sale in Georgia is about to crest 70,000 miles and is quite unmolested, which is rare for a car that was an object of desire of the Fast and Furious set.

It’s increasingly rare that we spot a clean Mk3 Golf, GTI or Jetta/Vento. While this one has a few issues, notably the somewhat dodgy amplifier in the trunk and worn off leather on the gear knob, it’s nothing the new owner could not address and improve upon. It also seems that this car has largely escaped the ravages of rust, which is a well known weak point of Mk3 VWs. Considering the mileage and condition, this GTI is priced realistically for a quick sale. Here’s hoping an intrepid VW enthusiast snaps this one up and continues to preserve it for future generations.
