The first racing Volkswagen Golf will be auctionedMarch 30, 2020
Auction house Sotheby’s is going to organize a bid in the summer, which will sell the first ever Volkswagen Golf. We are talking about the first generation hatchback, which was built for the Group 2 class in 1975.
The presentation of the Volkswagen Golf Mk 1 Group 2, painted in a bright red shade, took place in 1975. Cars were built by Rolf Notelle and his company Nothelle Motorsport.
Initially, a “four” 1.6 with 164 hp was installed in the hatchback, and later a 1.8 engine, which was distinguished by the presence of a Weber 45 DCOE dual carburetor, contactless ignition, and the model was also equipped with BBS wheels and racing brakes. In the same, 1975, “Golf” is located in first place at the German Grand Prix on the Hockenheim ring.
9 years ago, the hatchback was completely rebuilt by Rolf Nottele’s son, Marcus. In 2012, Golf was shown at the Techno Classica exhibition, and now it has been decided to sell it. The car also comes with a spare motor and transmission, as well as a set of unique elements of the Group 2 class. The cost of the car is not currently disclosed.
