MK1 Golf GTI - Ultimate build!

Project started November 2012

This customer wanted us to rebuild his MK1 Golf GTI from the ground up, and create the ultimate incarnation of this classic hot-hatch for road use. The gist of the brief was to keep the car cosmetically standard with the exception of some carefully chosen wheels, but under the skin everything was to be upgraded with driving performance in mind. The engine is to remain 8V in homage to the original car but we plan an epic rebuild to take it to over 200bhp. Inside a carefully hidden audio system, up-to-date cable gearshift and bias pedalbox will hide behind an apparently standard interior.
