Volkswagen Automotive Legends

VW Golf GTI do you have one?

Over the years the Golf GTI has changed its shape many times, but has it improved or could the car worse nowadays?

The newest Golf has 3 different models you have the GTI, GTD, and the R I would personally buy the GTI I have always preferred the shape of the GTI and its still a great looking car the newest Golf GTI has a selection of two different engines for you to choose from the TSI petrol 6 speed manual gearbox or you can get exactly the same engine but with the DSG auto gearbox.

Petrol engine stats:

• Maximum Speed: 149 mph

• Torque: 207 lbs.ft

• Acceleration (0-62mph): 6.9 seconds

• MPG Urban: 28.2

So you can all agree that the Golf engine has some decent numbers but the question is will it really do the job when it is on the road.

Inside the Golf you can have the choice of leather or material id say a lot of people will go for leather just because it makes the car so much better for looks and when you try to sell it.

When you think of Volkswagen you will most likely think of the classic beetle since it is the car that really introduced the Volkswagen logo around the world. The first Volkswagen car was designed in 1934 by Ferdinand Porsche as a method of cheap reliable transport. Through the years VW have become a global force in the manufacturing sector getting bigger and bigger with every new design. Not to long after the beetle had been created and unveiled the Golf was released. The first generation of Golf or the rabbit as it was called by the Americans was launched in 1975 and was stopped in 1984. Through the years the Golf has gone from the original square body shape and gradually over the years become streamlined and round the first Volkswagen rabbit GTI was a very square body compared to the new golf introduced in 2006. Through the years the Golf has been fitted with a bigger engine but in addition has gained more weight the biggest engine that Volkswagen released in the Golf was the impressive Golf R32 with the 3.2 V6 engine in the front. The R32 is the most powerful of the whole Golf range because it is 4wd and it has 237BHP which isn’t that great for a V6 I would have expected a lot more from Volkswagen.

I think the car that Volkswagen could be most pleased with must be the Bugatti Veyron with the unbelievable 16.4 litre engine with 1001BHP and reaching an incredible 250MPH there are only a handful of Veyron’s and several different types that were made by Bugatti the only real difference with the other models was mainly the inside detail and different wheels other then that they could not do much more to make the car distinct.
