The Golf III entered the market in 1991 with a well-rounded body. Sure, it looked different, but it was immediately recognizable as a Golf. With its VR6 engine, this car revolutionized the compact class at the time. Typical for this generation: the almond-shaped headlights.
And it was of course the first Golf with front airbags. In the same year, VW fulfilled a long-cherished customer wish with its first Golf station wagon (Golf Variant). Fans of storage space no longer had to look to the Opel Astra or Ford Escort.
Volkswagen scored a coup with Europe-wide media coverage by sponsoring the tour of British pop trio Genesis, followed later by Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd. Tt received a high-quality sound system, combined with the most environmentally friendly engine at the time. This is what Pink Floyd member David Gilmour wanted.
With this model, a total of 15 million were produced with the previous Golf series, and for a long time it was one of Germany’s most popular used cars. Between 1991 and 1997, 4.83 million vehicles were produced and sold at prices starting at 19,975 German marks (around 9,990 euros).
- The RONAL R50 – a perfect match
Like the Golf III, it is perfectly shaped, clearly defined, straight-forward, and low-maintenance: The R50 AERO polished design offers impressive features with its cult spokes for brake cooling, its unerringly enclosed shape and – as the name suggests – its aerodynamics. This ultimate classic wheel with a high-quality fully polished surface and no logo is also available in Black-front diamond cut and Racing gold-rim lip diamond cut. The cult of former racing wheels from the 1980s is thereby continued into the third millennium in a in a contemporary version.
