The Volkswagen Gti was launched in left-hand drive from 1975 with a 1,588cc engine and four-speed manua gearbox. By 1979 the steering wheel had swapped sides for the UK market, and an extra gear had been added. In 1980 the cheap looking steel wheels were replaced by nine-spoke alloys, which helped to improve the look of the car. A larger 1,781cc engine replaced the original in 1982 offering improved mid-range acceleration and better fuel-economy.
