|Odometer reading||47,980 miles|
|Result||Sold - £9,056|
The Volkswagen Golf Mk. 5 was the fifth generation of the Volkswagen Golf and the successor to the Mk. 4. Sharing the Volkswagen Group A5 platform, it debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in October 2003 and went on sale in Europe one month later. The Golf Mk. 5 was replaced in 2009 with the Mk. 6. The GTI comes with VW's four-cylinder 2.0L Turbo engine (FSI) which gives it 197 bhp. Transmissions include a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG. The Mk. 5 is now regarded as probably the best incarnation of the legendary GTi after the original Mk. 1 of 1976-1983 and is fast acquiring modern classic status.
This superb example from the ‘daddy of hot hatches’ is presented in black with black cloth interior and is immaculate throughout including underneath. It comes with air conditioning and climate control, six speed DSG automatic transmission, sports seats and has 11 VW stamps in its original service book. Its MoT test certificate expires in March 2022 and the car also comes with two sets of keys. Great fun, practical and quick!
