Über-detailed mkIV Golf

There are a lot of mkIV Golfs in the world, so it's not always easy to make one stand out. But you can't go wrong with this kind of treatment - it takes a modern concept of stance with a late-nineties/early-noughties show-car flavour, combining the functional and sporty with the extrovert and extreme. Porsche 911 bucket seats, an engine bay rich in carbon-fibre and a half-cage suggest performance, while wrapping said cage (along with pretty much everything else) in leather demonstrates a penchant for the luxury aesthetic. Grafting in an Audi TT dash probably wasn't easy, and the same goes for the pulled arches to accentuate the levels of tuck over those vast rims. To the casual observer, it's just a clean Golf; to the enthusiast, it wears months of hard graft on its sleeve.
