Towards the end of the MK1 Golf Cabriolet’s life, VW introduced 3 distinctive models to the range. The 1.6 Clipper, Rivage and this, the Sportline. Fitted with the GTI’s 1.8 fuel-injected engine, the Sportline was only ever available in Black or Flash Red, a colour unique to this model. Fitted with electric roof, leather steering wheel and even complete with its original model radio cassette, this exceptional example has been cherished throughout its life and is in superb condition. The Recaro interior (another unique feature of the Sportline) shows little to no wear and the thick history file that accompanies the car only reiterates how well-loved this car has been.
A car for the collector, this must be one of the few MK1’s that hasn’t been tainted by some form of after-market “enhancements” and it is all the better for it. Original, bright and so much fun, these cars have become very rare and sought after with MK1 GTIs commanding serious money. What better way to enjoy the forthcoming Spring/Summer season with a relatively inexpensive, yet useable classic such as this? Serious enquiries are invited for this stunning collectors edition Golf GTI.
