The Volkswagen Classic stand at the Techno Classica will feature one of the oldest existing Golf I models coming from Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen. VW’s exhibition in hall 7.0 of the world fair for vintage and classic vehicles in Essen, Germany will focus on the 40th birthday of the Golf and seven sporty Beetles.
Under the motto ‘40 Years of Golf', Volkswagen Classic will exhibit one of the oldest Golf Is, which marked the commencement of long-running success that still happens today. The first Golf rolled off the production line on the Mittelland Canal central Germany exactly 40 years ago. Since introducing the Golf I, VW has already sold over 30 million units.
To celebrate the anniversary, VW has tapped Hans-Joachim ‘Strietzel' Stuck, one of the best-known German-speaking racing drivers and an owner of a Golf I GTI, for the event to sign autographs. Volkswagen Classic will also display at the Techno Classica a collection of sporty ‘Power Beetles.'
The exhibit has been made available by the AutoMuseum Volkswagen Foundation for the Techno Classica. VW will also exhibit a cutaway Golf I that features a number of extras. The unit can be viewed at the Volkswagen Classic Parts stand and will be highlighting the oldest Wolfsburg vehicle collection.
