As one of the world’s best selling cars, Volkswagen Golfs can be seen on pretty much any street corner around the world.
Consequently, there are tons of them up on the used car market, but stumbling across a third-generation model with just a few thousand miles on the clock is rather unusual.
Currently up for sale in Germany from Mobile, the seller of this particular Golf claims the hatchback has covered only 2,330 km since it rolled out of the factory in November 1995, making it more of a garage queen than quite a few priceless hypercars.
While the car may be almost new from a mechanical standpoint, it can’t hide its age. In particular, there’s the 90’s-spec burgundy paint scheme which to put it nicely, hasn’t aged particularly well. In the cabin, there’s plastic on top of plastic everywhere from the door panels to the steering wheel and the center console. Out of date doesn’t even begin to describe it.
The naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivers a total of 116 PS (114hp). While that’s not heaps, it’s about on par with a brand new mid-range Ford Fiesta, but the latter has the Golf licked on torque – and everything else, for that matter. For the record, the asking price is €13,995 ($15,471).
