As decades of car manufacturing and innovation have passed, Volkswagen still lives on, having established their brand as manufacturers that have historically and continuously pushed boundaries. The Golf MK1 is an embodiment of that. It was a car that played a role in Volkswagen’s rise to prominence and a car that survived decades of global economic uncertainty and yet which remarkably, is thriving today. The Golf series, time and time again, became a staple in modern family life, a staple that still exists today thanks to masterful foresight of VW. Over 460,000 units were produced, making it one of the most successful cars in history.
