With subtle Performance Pack upgrades, red GTi badging to front and rear panels, duplicated on front brake callipers in white. The MK7 has a squat, purposeful and aggressive stance. Perfectly balanced with twin exhausts, and highlighted by the roof mounted spoiler, large front cooling vents, air intakes and distinctive red band continuously carried through the grill and into the headlamps.
Without doubt, the stand-out feature of this individual GTi
The luxurious soft tan leather is of the highest quality creating an extremely special MK7. Replicated in the door cards and front central arm-rest, the tones create a wonderful contrast to the Pearl Black exterior, unmarked, with little sign of wear. Flat bottom multi-function leather steering wheel displays the highlighted red stitching, also found on the leather gear selector. Now a modern design take on the original synonymous golf ball, the gear lever fits perfectly in the hand. Luggage space is generous, 380 litres with seats up, 1270 with seats down. Decorative inserts in honeycomb black to dash and door panels, chrome air vent and light switch surrounds. All surfaces are as new, with every piece of electronic equipment operating fully as indented, without fault.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
This MK 7 Golf GTi is powered by a frugal, (18% improvement over previous model) yet spirited, 1984cc in line 4 cylinder, turbo injection 16v, front mounted, transverse petrol engine, developing 227bhp and 350Nm of torque. Limited to a top speed of 155 mph, with a 0-62 mph time just a little over 6.00+ secs, although feeling far swifter. Transmission is via a silky smooth 6-speed manual clutch. This GTi benefits from the Performance Package, larger vented brakes, 13.4”inch front, 12.4”inch rear, as found in the Golf ‘R’, single piston callipers in red with white GTi logo at the front. The Limited Slip Differential greatly assists during high speed cornering, reducing any loss of grip, therefore less likely to trigger the Electronic Stability Control (ESC). You also enjoy an additional 10hp at your disposal. Agile, balanced and competent, while four fully grown adults can still be transported safely (5 star ENCAP safety rating). Classless, ageless, and globally respected, the GTi MK 7 must be considered one of the best all round cars available. Possibly, the only car you will ever need?
