Volkswagen museum launches ‘Birthday’ exhibition

Volkswagen’s Auto Museum is launching a new exhibition series called “Birthday” which sees special anniversary models on display, beginning with the Golf Cabriolet Classic Line.

Powered by a 1.8L 98 hp four-cylinder engine, the 1991 model marked a milestone for Volkswagen when it became the highest production convertible in the world.

As major fans of the Mk1 Golf, we were pleased when Volkswagen retained the classic shape for its Cabriolet model ten years after the iconic hatchback had ceased production (although it was still produced in other countries – such as South Africa). The Mk1 Cabriolet was built for Volkswagen by the coachbuilder Karmann from 1979, and was succeeded by the Golf Mk3 Cabriolet in 1993, followed by a 3.5 version (Mk3 with a Mk4 face) up until 2002.

It wasn’t until 2011 that Volkswagen brought the Golf Cabriolet back, and has since teased us with GTI and R concepts. We can only hope they reach production…
