1988 Volkswagen Golf GTi. 1.8. 3 Door. Stunning Tornado Red. FSH. Fully serviced. Ready to go.


We are very pleased to offer an iconic Hot Hatch in fantastic condition. Finished in gleaming Tornado red with contrasting grey clth trim this small bumper GTi has lived a charmed life and is offered in close to original factory spec. It is accompanied with its original handbooks, fully stamped service book and still wears its original dealer registration plates. I have been lucky enough to own a few MK2 GTi’s and I can confirm that they are still great fun to drive with bags of revvy power and accurate handling and they have earned their place as a Classic Hot Hatch and have rightly become collectable. Our example benefits from having a recent glass out respray and many new parts so it is just ready to be driven and enjoyed as these cars should be and it offers its lucky new owner the chance to do that.

Driving this GTi is great fun, easy around town with a slick gearbox and they easily keep up with modern traffic, in fact they are still fast. The 1.8 8 valve engine is very smooth and when you get out out on the open road and put your foot down it really flies. A sports exhaust gives it the correct sound, I have driven this GTi many miles and I can can confirm its ready to go anywhere and it always makes me smile, not too mention how many people want to talk about it, after all they are a rare sight on todays roads. Four new tyres, shocks and springs mean it handles without fault and a fully serviced engine including the cam belt gives that extra peace of mind.

The interior of this GTi has been well preserved , the cloth trim presents well and there is only minor wear on the drivers bolster. The switch gear is all original and the MFA computer works perfectly. The roof lining is in very good condition and the sunroof is also fully functioning. The rear parcel shelf is in tact and the only non original item is the Stereo which still looks period. It also benefits from an immobiliser.

As you can see from the pics this GTi is well presented with and has a very period factory look. The P slot alloys have just been fully refurbished and really set this example apart. The paintwork is in fantastic condition and it really gleams in the sunlight. The shell is in very good condition and it has its original factory stickers on the boot floor. A lot of love and care has gone into this awesome example and judging by the amount of attention it gets other people agreed.

The GTi is fully serviced and has a long no advisory MOT so is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
