MkIII Golf: Redux

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



The MkIII Golf is arguably, er, not the greatest generation of Golf. But there's an army of Dubbers out there who refuse to let it silently sink into the annals of history, keenly tearing the things down to first principles and building them back up as altogether more magnificent creations. Check out this searing blue culture-clash, for example. If you've got negative thoughts swirling around your brain about the third-gen Golf, ram this little poppet up your preconceptions.
The bonnet's been artfully scythed around its bracing to reveal a detailed VR6, like some sort of W├Ârthersee peep show. There's race car aggression in spades inside - buckets, cage, the works - but it's all complemented by such luxurious accoutrements as a full dash, beefy audio install and super-cool comic strip doorcards and headlining. And then it's right back to race car again, with the massive brakes and rorty side-exit exhaust. Love it or hate it, you certainly can't miss it. Archetypal Marmite.
SSBB verdict? Awesome on toast.
