I’m not sure we’d call this Mk2 VW Golf a ‘sleeper’ - just look at that hilariously wide front track, for a kick-off. But the exterior, we reckon, doesn’t quite betray what’s going on underneath.
Under the bonnet, you’ll find a Mk3 Golf GTI engine with an individual throttle body conversion. It revs to 9000rpm, and puts its power to the front wheels via a sequential gearbox.
Hearing it smashing through gears at that sky-high rev ceiling is, perhaps predictably, a treat for the ears. This might be a good time to dig out a good pair of headphones.
