  1. id like some more info on the original VW GTi, particularly the weight and performance stats. i did manage to find this info on the engine...

    was this car pretty quick for its day? i see it has no power, but im sure it didnt weigh anything...(maybe 1500 lbs???)

    83-84 GLi/GTi/Scirocco,CIS

    okay, i found this...can anyone verify that?

    and did it have any competition?
     
  3. A good set of specs would be of help to me too, I'm looking into using one as a project base.

  6. i read it was the 1st fwd car to break 0-30 in under 3 seconds.

    also what do you mean it has no horsepower? anything above 80 is more than enough.
     
  7. it is an amazing car for it's time. i want to trade my audi for that or an mk2.
     
  8. The weight isn't around 750?
     
  9. The link I posted has all that info.
     
  10. is there a rabbit gti too as well as the golf gti?
