The Golf 2
It is offered in 8 different variants. Among them the GTD variant.
GTD stood for: ” grand tourisme diesel ” and powered the Golf with a 70 hp turbo diesel engine.
Outwardly hardly distinguishable from the real sports models with the GTI abbreviation in the radiator grille, the top model with the D inspired the newly burgeoning self-confidence of diesel drivers at the beginning of the eighties. The days when diesel engines were compared to wandering dunes were finally a thing of the past. 161 km/h, zero to 100 in 14.9 seconds, these were no values for duels with powerful petrol engines – but sufficient performance to keep up with much larger limousines of the same drive type.
