Top 10 cars from the 37th Edition of the GTI Treffen

The 1976 Volkswagen Golf GTI started something big. It made affordable performance cars a real thing and from the moment it hit the road, just about every other OEM launched their own “GTI”. The GTI also spawned one of the biggest Volkswagen GTGs in the world on the shores of Lake Wörther in Austria. I was just there and loved every second of the event.

The car show is open to all cars from the Volkswagen Auto Group, not just GTIs. Here’s my top 10 cars from the 37th Edition of the GTI Treffen am Wörthersee 2018.

Audi 60

This was one of the first cars to be built by Audi following the formation of the Audi NSU Auto Union.

MK1 Scirocco

A gorgeous example of Italian Giugiaro styling and German engineering. My all-time favorite Volkswagen.

MK1 Jetta sedan

Simple good looks and daily usability. Robust, reliable, beautiful, rare, sweet, elegant, innocent, pretty, cool, distinguished… I could go on and on…

MK1 Golf GTI Kamei

The widdended steel wheels and Kamei body kit make for an incredible combination.

MK1 Polo Jeans Edition

In the mid-70s, denim everything, including car interiors, was in.

MK2 Golf Country

The first crossover? This is a raised 5-door Golf Syncro with 21cm of ground clearance and semi-real off-roading abilities. What’s a Golf Syncro?

MK2 Golf Syncro

This is an equally rarified beast. It’s a 5-door Golf with VW’s Syncro viscous-coupling AWD.

MK2 Rallye Golf G60

This ultimate 2nd generation Golf. Supercharged 1.8-litre 8v 4-cylinder engine with Syncro AWD. Power and performance.

MK3 Golf

This car features a rear-mounted air-cooled flat-4 cylinder engine. The fabrication quality is out of this world.

MK7 Golf R Sportwagen

Who said station wagons are boring? This is a properly done-up Golf R wagon. I want one. NOW.
