Back in the late 1980s, Volkswagen spotted a market niche. Buyers were starting to move away from Golf GTis and into more expensive sports saloons, like the BMW 3 Series. The draw of a smooth and powerful six-cylinder engine was proving very tempting for many.
The six-cylinder Golf VR6 appeared in 1992 and was an instant success. At a stroke, it won back old customers and lifted the Golf upmarket. A new benchmark for high performance hatchbacks had been established.
This Volkswagen Golf VR6 is a fun and accessible modern classic, presented in superb unmodified condition, with single ownership from 1995 until 2013. It is powered by the 2.8-litre narrow-angle V6 engine producing 128 kilowatt and driven through the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. The odometer indicates just 30,157 kilometres from new, which is fully supported by the comprehensive history.
Delivered new to in Sydney, this Golf VR6 was supplied to its first owner via dealer Volkswagen Chatswood and was first registered on 20 of December 1995. This custodian evidently enjoyed the car, holding onto it for nearly 15 years, and keeping it meticulously maintained throughout that period.
The bodywork on this Golf is in superb order, and the Tornado Red finish presents beautifully.
Once you have taken time to appreciate the exterior, the interior of this VR6 does not disappoint. Like the rest of the car, it remains in unmodified condition and retains the original steering wheel and gear knob. The sport seats are upholstered in geometric fabric that is still in very excellent condition. The original black carpeting is also in great shape, protected by rubber floor mats. Accompanying by the complete and original book, the stamped maintenance record and 2 keys.
This VW Golf VR6 is a remarkably original and unmolested example of a popular modern classic. It benefits from impeccably documented single ownership for 25 years, and the present owner has ensured that the car remains in top-notch condition, ready for its next enthusiast owner. It would be very difficult to find another with such a compelling blend of known provenance, low kilometres, and great presentation.
