Produced from 1991 to 1997, the Volkswagen Golf VR6 arguably kicked off Europe's obsession with the mega hatch as it epitomised the ideal balance of performance with everyday usability. Replacing the 1990 Volkswagen Golf GTi G60, this front-wheel drive, five-seat, compact hatchback is part of the Mk. III generation Golf, which came in three or five door variations. It also came with the option of a five-speed manual gearbox, or a four-speed automatic. As far as fuel economy is concerned, this car should achieve around 30mpg, meaning a full tank should cover 350 miles before requiring a refill.

These cars are pretty rare, as today there are only around 850 Mk. III VR6s on UK roads. First registered on 19th May 1995 and costing £19,920, this metallic blue VR6 is a three-door manual example. Described as totally original and even featuring the uprated, from factory, Sony HiFi upgrades, this example boasts just three former keepers, the last a lady who has owned the car since the turn of the millennium. The car has recently undergone a light restoration and is offered with an MoT test certificate until June 2024. The history file contains a full book pack and a comprehensive service history with significant paperwork for previous maintenance. This is a true unmolested example of the iconic 90’s hot hatch when big engines in smaller cars become all the rage and Volkswagen’s V6 was the perfect combination.

Estimate £3,000-£7,000
