The Volkswagen GTI
The Volkswagen GTI is an awesome compact sports car. It is a quick car that is made to handle good. I own a 1998. GTI's have been made since 1983. Here are some information of earlier models.
The MK1Rabbit The MK1 was first introduced in America in 1983. It was made to be very reliable, and to handle well. The MK1 body (mark one) was in production from 1983 until 1986. It is personally one of my favorite generations of GTI's
The Mk2 GTI The MK2 was in production from 1987 until 1993. This car came with either a 8 valve or 16 valve 4 cylinder engine. This particular car is hard to find anymore in America, however the MK2 is still frequently used in Europe.
The MK3 GTI The MK3 was a large step for GTI's, because it was now available with Volkswagens VR6 engine. The VR6 was specifically redesigned to fit inside a GTI, and gave it 174 horsepower stock, giving it the name "The Pocket Rocket".
The MK4 GTI The MK4 came out in late 1999, and is known as the "new body style". You can get this car in the VR6 engine, or in a 4 cylinder turbo charged 1.8 liter engine. the 2002 Models of the GTI can come with a Tiptronic semi-automatic transmission, or in a new 6 speed gear box. The 2002 GTI is one of my favorite cars out there right now besides the AUDI S4.
