The Volkswagen Golf Story: 40 Years of the Second People’s Car.
The Volkswagen Golf is a motoring paradox, seemingly never really changing its look but always pushing technical development forwards, a ‘classless’ car which still carries a ‘premium’ feel about it.
The Golf didn’t invent the idea of the front-wheel-drive hatchback, but its interpretation established the template that others would follow and the benchmark by which they are still judged today.
Marking its 40th anniversary in 2014, this meticulously researched 288 page hardback book by Russell Hayes, who has worked for TV programmes to include “Top Gear”, “The Car’s the Star” and “Driven”, celebrates the Golf in the fullest detail yet. Containing over 300 photographs and much original material, it is both a timely reminder of the Golf’s enduring appeal and a fitting tribute to a motoring legend.
