A family member is close to buying one of these, personally I don’t like the look but each to there own. Any VW guys on here with any knowledge on them, apparently these are quite rare.

Lastly if it makes any odds, the G60 has been removed and it’s now got a 2.0 16v turbo.

Does it come with the original G60 lump?

If not dont pay top whack for it as a good chunk of its value has been lost by fitting the 16VT lump.

Where is the car? Any more details? They were fairly cheap at one point so a lot were buggered around with and badly repaired / painted so buyer beware.

Just comes with the 16v turbo unit, it’s got a Quaife 6speed box and some kind of fancy gear shifter so it’s been modded a fair bit the list goes on from what I’ve been told.

Car is in Dundee just now and has been for the last few years, it’s had 4 previous owners and was south coast of England before Dundee. Pearl blue in colour and on H plate

These start at about £22K for an "ok" example but as said above, if it hasn't got its original G60 with it, it's only going to be worth half as much. The drivetrain is pretty reliable but it is getting on for 30 years old so things like the Haldex system might not be in the best of health. They can take a big hike in the original power (160BHP), I've known people who've run 400+ on the standard drivetrain internals but obviously the life is going to be compromised...

They're still a desirable car but go in with great care. I bought a slightly rough G60 for £7k a few years ago before they went stratospheric. I must have spent the same again getting it up to scratch but I'd budgeted for it. It's worth more than it owes me & is a really different & rewarding car to drive - I love it! I've never seen another on the road while I've had it & I regularly get people coming up to me in car parks offering to buy it

A mate had a blue G60, we came second in a ‘show and shine’ at ED38 one year! In the standard category, despite having slept in it hours before Smile

Can we see yours?

Not mine bud I’ll see if I can get a picture and post it.

This has an uprated diff also, I’m gonna ask for the engine/box spec too and I’ll stick it up here.

I wouldn’t bother if it hasn’t got the correct engine.

Engine + 4wd were what made the car special.... it certainly wasn’t the looks!

(I used to have a polo G40, comedy gold!)

Sure - leather & A/C is incredibly rare (even more rare is that the A/C actually works!) Very Happy

It's coming up on 160K Kms & still drives really well

Very nice, I’d have that before the rallye always liked the G60.

Here’s a picture I got and I’m trying to get spec

What a blast from the past!

I had 2 Mk2 golfs, an 8v first and then a 16v. Always really fancied a rallye but could never afford one. Closest I came was 'almost' buying a standard GTI which had been converted to G60 spec.

Golf limited is the real holy grail but no idea if they ever come up for sale?

Nice, pretty sure a mate used to own that car.

My G60 Edition 1 was also an AC car, 38k kms and absolutely perfect - loved that thing!



Locosaki, please tell your family member to make sure he does plenty of homework, that car is far from factory and therefore worth a good chunk less. Great if he wants to enjoy driving it but not so great if he's buying it to own a Rallye. How much is it?

15k ONO. What sort of money is a good genuine G60 ?

Love a good mk2, had a late 8 Valver (Big bumper and all mod cons) as my first car.

G60 and the Ralleye are uber cool.

I know my VW's and I would say its very hard to price that car as it has been modified so much, they are getting to the point of original is worth a lot more. Is any of the standard bits available?

Personally I like it and would maybe have a stab at it as it does seem like some nice components. The issue with the Mk2 and Rallye is rust, especially in the sills with these. Its a long long time since I saw a Rallye on the road so it would appeal, not so sure on the LHD.

Is it in Montrose or Dundee as I know there is a guy in Montrose that has had a few?

Orignal 4wd was the syncro system not haldex. Its all mechanical but does not like big power. There is a gut near me that has (in bits) a Vr6 turbo 6 speed one of these built about 20 years ago. Sadly I believe its still in bits.

Haven't looked recently (plus they don't come up often anyway), but about a year ago I saw a roughish G60 (all there but needed a fair bit of tidying) up for £16K - it sold pretty quickly. Getting parts is becoming more of a problem now; there's a place in Austria that I buy all my engine consumables from, a place in France that often has better stock that VW Heritage in the UK but it's always a struggle. It took me over a year to find a replacement radiator for instance. The Rallye is probably worse for things like replacement Rallye-specific wings / arches, bumpers etc.

It's often the fear of damage that stops them being used given the difficulty with obtaining parts. Some of the pattern parts (bumpers are a particular problem) are just utter rubbish compared to the original VW quality.

Thanks all, no original engine parts with car at all so basically as you see it.

The car is in storage in Dundee so no idea where the owner is from, big vw man I gather.

I’ve had a few Mk2 GTi’s but I’ve never been a rallye fan, G60 definitely.
