Volkswagen Golf Rallye was planned to be released in a limited series of 2500 cars. The charged hatchback received a 275-horsepower turbo engine and all-wheel drive.
A unique prototype of the 1993 Volkswagen Golf Rallye was brought to the SEMA tuning show. The charged model was shown to the public for the first time – before that, few people knew about it. This is reported by the Carscoops website.
The history of the car is very interesting. In the early 90s, Volkswagen was going to participate in the WRC World Rally Championship. To qualify a racing car for competition, at least 2500 cars of its production version had to be produced.
Volkswagen Golf Rallye was planned as a rival to Subaru WRX STI and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The three-door VW Golf 3 was taken as a basis.
The charged hatchback differs from the standard model in a body kit and extended wings. A spoiler is installed on the roof, and an air intake has appeared on the hood. Also noteworthy are the 16-inch wheels with 225/45R16 tires.
Inside, a sports steering wheel and Recaro A8 bucket seats were installed. A roll cage also appeared.
Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbo engine that produces 275 hp. With. and 370 N∙m. With a 6-speed manual transmission Volkswagen Golf Rallye accelerates to 270 km/h. The sports model also received all-wheel drive and Brembo brakes, and its suspension was improved. -subaru-sti-i-mitsubishi-lancer-evo-foto-d23b49d.jpg” alt=”Volkswagen declassified high-speed competitor Subaru STI and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (photo)” />
Volkswagen Golf Rallye remained in a single copy. The German concern postponed plans to participate in the rally, and therefore the need for such a model has disappeared.
