💙1999 Volkswagen Golf GTI VR6💙

This beauty belongs to East Coast Tester, Lisa Calvi.

With only 78,000 kilometres on the odometer of the well-loved two-door hot hatch, it’s obviously not winter-driven (oh, the horror!).

The 21-year-old pocket rocket is powered by a 2.8-litre V-6 engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission that makes 172 horsepower.

Retrieving it from winter storage fills Lisa with joy.

She never tires of the feel of the steering wheel, the distinct sound of the six-cylinder engine and how nice the low-end torque is when just puttering around town.

Yes, there are vehicles with more horsepower, fancier interiours, cooler gadgetry but when it comes down to it, she doesn’t think she will ever bring herself to sell the vehicular love of her life, the 1999 Volkswagen GTi VR6 (Sorry, guys!).
