1989 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF (MK2) RALLYE 'G60'

Lot Description

This 1989 Volkswagen Golf Mk2 Rallye is a rare homologation special, which has been enjoyed as intended but presents very well following a restoration in 2017. Under the bonnet sits the G-supercharged 1.8-litre G60 engine, producing around 158bhp, which drives all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. The odometer currently indicates 211,856 km from new.

One of around 5,000 examples built and an original Italian-market car, this Golf Rallye has been in the hands of its current keeper for five years. It has received an extensive mechanical refurbishment, and has also been fitted with an aftermarket exhaust.

The bodywork of this Mk2 Golf is all in excellent shape, and its Graphite Metallic paintwork has benefited from a respray during the restoration, now presenting with just one or two minor imperfections on the front end and a small scratch in front of the sunroof. The headlight lenses and Rallye badging at the rear are in good order, while the car rides on a set of 15-inch wheels, which are in superb condition.

Inside, the seats are trimmed in the original combination of black leather and grey fabric, with smart red accents and the ‘Rallye’ logo stitched into the backrests. The fabric centre panels are in great shape, and there is only some light creasing can on the bolsters and door card inserts. Some light age-related wear is visible on the four-spoke steering wheel and manual gear knob, along with some small scratches to the dashboard plastics. An aftermarket Kenwood stereo has been installed and no electrical faults have been detected.

The last routine maintenance was undertaken in May 2017 at 128,000 miles, where technicians changed the engine oil, filter, brake fluid, drive belt and water pump, before overhauling the G60 compressor as part of the restoration. The tyres are reported to be in good condition, with around 50% of their tread remaining. While the original service book is not present, there are numerous maintenance and parts invoices.

This Volkswagen Golf Rallye G60 is a lesser-seen hot hatch, produced as a homologation model for VW’s rallying efforts in Group A. It has been enjoyed as intended but now benefits from an extensive restoration carried out just four years ago. An increasingly rare sight on the road, this Rallye would be a great addition to any collection of modern classics.
