More details

The GTI was unveiled to the general public and motoring press at the September 1975 Frankfurt Motor Show, the car however wasn't available to buy until June 1976 due to the engineers insistence that the new GTI should satisfy the same levels of quality and reliability that every production VW adhered to, a commitment that almost certainly lead to the longevity of the GTI when compared to its peers such as the XR3, Astra GTE and Peugeot 205 GTI.

The convertible was built entirely at Karmann's facility in Osnabruck, with VW supplying the interiors and running gear to be bolted to the in-house manufactured body. Engines were offered in pretty much every format that the hard top Golf had received (1100-1800cc, both carb. and injected) with the exception of the diesel.

The car remained essentially unchanged until 1982, when the hood design was altered so that it folded flatter, to aid rear visibility. In 1984 the Cabrio was subjected to a few updates, to drawer it more in line with the newly launched Mk2 Golf, so the rear seat received a "split" type design, and the fuel tank was increased from 40-55L with the addition of a space-saver type spare wheel.  Karmann confirmed 388,522 Cabrios being produced between 1979 and 1991.
