VW Beetle History

History of the VW Mk2 Golf

In September 1983, VW launched the MkII Golf (Typ 19E) along with its booted sibling the Jetta at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It was slightly larger and more refined than the Mk1, and this time was designed in-house by VW's design director Schäfer, though it was clearly influenced by the Italian penned Mk1. Weight was up by a reported 120kg, but the new cars more slippery shape meant performance and economy were in most instances up on the equivalent engined Mk1.

The GTI was unveiled to the general public and motoring press at the September 1975 Frankfurt Motor Show, the car however wasn't available to buy until June 1976 due to the engineers insistence that the new GTI should satisfy the same levels of quality and reliability that every production VW adhered to, a commitment that almost certainly lead to the longevity of the GTI when compared to its peers such as the XR3, Astra GTE and Peugeot 205 GTI.

Available in any colour so long as it was Mars Red, or Diamond Metallic Silver, customers were offered the choice of Schwartz Black soon after launch. The GTI was first granted a UK audience in late 1976, at the London Motor Show, where VW stated that there would be no RHD version, citing technical reasons as the reason, however you could import a LHD one as special order if you so chose at a cost of £3,372.

A few companies within the UK were beginning to specialise in making their own GTI's using RHD 1500cc Golfs as the basis, notably GTI Engineering and Tim Stiles. Following relentless lobbying by the UK dealer network, VW finally offered a RHD version of the GTI in early 1979, something they probably should have done earlier, especially when you compare sales of the '78 LHD GTI at 22, vs. the '79 RHD GTI with over 1500 sold.
