In 1973 VW engineers began the development of a high-performance “Sport Golf” as a secret project rather than as an official factory program. They were joined later by suspension experts and chassis analysts. The marketing department helped to coin the “GTI” acronym. A legendary car and a long lasting performance saga was officially born.
The 1976 Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered by many to be the original “hot hatch”, the production was not expected to exceed 5000 units, but thanks to its excellent performance, top reviews and a cult following the total production of Golf Mk1 GTIs eventually reached 462,000 units.
