Some 35 yrs ago in 1976, the iconic VW Golf GTI hot hatch was born. According to the Chinese Zodiac, it coincides with the year of the Dragon. The dragon baby is certainly a lucky model for the VW, being perhaps the most recognizable car of the entire VW range. For the first time ever, Volkswagen Singapore is celebration the birthday of the Golf GTI in a big way on 26 and 27 November.

At a specially transformed Old Kallang Airport, Golf GTI fans can catch an exclusive showcase of some of the best GTIs, including the extremely rare original model. The Golf GTI E35, the fastest production Golf GTI ever, will be displayed for the first time in the Lion City. The GTI E35 is powered by a detuned version of the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the Golf R. It produces 232bhp of power and 300Nm of torque, which is down from the Golf Rís 256bhp/330Nm, but up 22bhp and 20Nm from the standard GTI.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
