It’s the way it’s been kept it’s really really impressive okay so under here is the heart and soul of the gti that’s a 200 horsepower 2-liter turbocharged engine very free revving absolute joy to move through the paces and put down the road just a terrific deal under the hood of this car that’s coupled to a very traditional 6-speed manual gearbox shifts buttery

Smooth and everything just lovely under here i also see a nice big power sunroof up top the styling on this car is just fantastic and looks so good in black now in here we’re gonna find something very special and by special i mean leather it’s not something you see very often in gti’s they’re kind of famous for these plaid you know almost cheeky cloth bucket

Seats that you know they’ve been using for decades believe me you want the leather it’s just that much nicer beautiful black leather in this car almost nowhere at all lovely soft been very well kept fantastic and you can see the rear seats same story beautiful black leather back there you know it’s a very useful and functional rear seat it’s not just for kids who

Pretty good option package on this car up tomp you’ve got the power sunroof works very well and i stuff will close that because it’s kind of chilly and everything proper i think this car also it’s like eight or nine airbags in it so it’s pretty damn safe okay move the seat back for the photos and i’m a short little guy saw me put that seat forward a little bit

So the joy of driving is truly what this car is all about i mean you have all seen them you know the ads of the martin ones too is going around the racetrack picking up the the rear wheels as it makes corners really really cool stuff and you know i would put it in the category of like the bmw 3-series in the porsche 911 in terms of what a gti means to a car guy

It’s just one of the the awesome hallmarks of driving you know something that everybody should own or if driven at some point you can see a beautiful free-revving engine it just so quickly goes up through the power band very little torque steer they managed that nicely fantastic feel from the shifter i know people rave about that dsg automatic or you know this

Shift less manual clutch less manual whatever it is there is something so nice and classic about a six-speed manual gearbox in this car and a clutch that’ll very very classic nice feeling and it’s the way i’d want to have the car and of course the handling is just so precise and perfect the thing goes exactly where you point an instant response from the steering
