At the IAA 1975 Volkswagen presented a vehicle that was initially developed without the knowledge of the board of directors. This sporty offshoot of the Golf 1 offered properties which characterize true sports car – a low curb weight combined with a powerful engine. Available from 1976 onwards, the outrageously fast GTI revolutionized the motoring world. There was now an affordable sports car that could easily compete with each other and be suitable for daily use. The sports car sector was completely democratised by the 110 bhp GTI. Wheel arch extensions, wider wheels, the large front spoiler and a red border around the front grille characterized this compact sports car which accelerated from 0 to 100 km / h (62 mph) in just 9.2 seconds. It very quickly became iconic.
