The Mk3 V6-powered Golf offered lots of power in quite an understated packet.

Produced from 1991 to 1997 this is the Mk3 generation Golf which replaced the GTi G60. With ~172BHP to tap into the VR6 is not slow either. The car is powered by the naturally aspirated 2.8L 12V narrow-angle V6, and mated to the five speed manual gearbox.

This Mk3 Golf VR6 comes fully spec'd with lots of additional extras, and with only ~44,000 miles on the clock. The car is finished in 'Brilliant Red' and comes to market with Mark, who is the second owner and before him the original owner had the car since new.

This car has a lot of originality, a great specification and a high-performance engine that's got investment potential written all over it.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jacob after meeting Mark the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

The car comes with one previous owner - and after searching high and low for a highly original and clean VR6 example, I found my dream example.

Mark purchased the VR6 from a late Chelsea football player, who had owned the car since new. He had the car registered in his name 4 months ago, and hoped to enjoy it over the summer as a weekend hot hatch, although not having anywhere to dry store the car anymore, like it deserves, Mark has now decided to bring it to sale with us.

When Mark went to pick up the car it had been stored all its entire life in a carpeted garage, the car comes with various tools and extras, which can be seen in the comments below. Over Mark's ownership, he's fitted a new battery, a new fuel pump, and had the car MOT'd.

Mark will be more than happy to answer questions about the car in the comments below.

Finished in Brilliant Red, the VR6 could be described as a sleeper for its modest and under-the-radar design - a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Wheels and Tyres

The VR6 is fitted with Silver 15" BBS alloy wheels and they present in great condition on each corner, with no obvious areas of concern.

Fitted with Firestone Firehawk TZ200 tyres on the front and Firestone Firehawk 690s on the rear, all the tyres appear to have a good amount of tread, with nothing noted on the MOT.

Please take a look at the photos and videos for a closer look.


The bodywork of this powerful Golf VR6 looks in great condition, with all the panel gaps around the car look to align well.

Just one small thing you will have seen already, the rubber bumpers have faded over time and would benefit from some restorer to bring them back to their former glory.

During our visit we didn't spot any obvious dinks down the flanks of the car, everything looking crisp and sharp. Both the doors, boot, and bonnet open and close with ease, and door shuts/sills which are typically problem areas all looked clean and visually free of issue.

We've highlighted in more detail our observations through our hi-resolution images and videos, so please take time to look through all the media files for a detailed view at what’s on offer, and for you to assess the condition of the car for yourselves.


Finished in a 'Brilliant Red', it is a vibrant colour that really makes the Golf stand out on the roads.

The finish of the paint is great and we are told could be the original paint. It is even in colour and finish across all the panels as you'd expect, and there are only a handful of very small stone chips to the front which have been touched up early on.

The images are taken from a few different angles to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. So please take the time to fully assess these hi-resolution images and videos of the car, for you to make up your own minds about the condition of the paint.

Glass and Trim

The glass on this example looks great and in line with the mileage and ownership, we didn't notice any major chips, cracks, or discolouration on our visit. The window seals look great too and in line with the rest of the condition of the car. Benefiting from being garage stored all its life, they haven't perished as you see on higher mileage examples.


Deep bolstered cloth seats offer a comfortable journey while holding you in place as you enjoy those 'B' road twisties.

Seats and Carpets

As you would expect for a low mileage example, the interior matches the exterior and appears in great original condition.

You can tell this car has been meticulously cared for over its lifetime.

The door cards and rubber mat present in great condition with no issues noticed.

Please take a look at the extensive media for a detailed view of the cabin.


Fitted with a black dashboard, which had no signs of any major damage or scuffs and appeared highly original.

No warning lights were displayed when we started the car and the odometer showed a reading of 43,958 on our visit.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The original VW steering wheel and gear selector are presented in excellent condition and show very few signs of use.

Take a look at the photos and videos for a closer view of the cabin.


~172BHP from the six-cylinder VR6 under the hood - quite the hot hatch.

Engine and Gearbox

Please watch the "On the Road" video to see the car being started from cold, then run when up to temperature. On our short trip out, Mark operated the gears with ease.

Over Marks ownership he has installed a new battery and fuel pump, which was all the car wanted for after some years off the road.

Suspension and Brakes

Mark reports the suspension setup is very comfortable while offering great performance in the corners.

Please view the mechanical videos and photographs to see close-up images from under the car.

The Drive

The VR6 offers more than enough poke for a hatchback, with the modest styling, it can be considered a bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Watch the mechanical video to see the car start from cold and get the V6 up to some speed along some 'B' roads.

Electrics and Other

Mark has reported that the electrical system is in line with the rest of the condition of the car, i.e. in full working order to his knowledge.

We did notice that the NSF headlamp has a little condensation in during the day of our visit.

History and Paperwork

One well spec'd example with low ownership and retaining its originality since leaving the showroom - this VR6 is ready to be enjoyed.

The car is coming fresh from Mark's ownership, with the previous owner having being the registered keeper since new. The car has bags of originality and the desirable V6 under the hood. Take a look at the media to see all the history included within the sale of the car, the last MOT'd in May and passed with no adversaries.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.

Ask Questions
Post a comment or ask the owner a question about the car.

As the previous owner has dementia how do you or he know that it’s been serviced? Are you saying you have PROOF of 5 services completed between 2011 and 2016 and is so can you provide the dates, mileage and a print off of the online service record of those services plus the date and mile of the service you carried out with proof also?


So currently its had ONE service in 27 years as opposed to the 27 services it should have had? Not sure the soft shoes make it more serviced or looked after as the car doesn’t know oR care if you wear wellies or slippers when you press the rubber pedals


When and where has the servicing been done?
