Sensational-looking car. I can't believe I own one, and it only cost me £11000 (3 year old model). There can't be many cars that look this good and are so affordable on the road. Mine is stromboli grey (dark grey). Colour choice is obviously a subjective thing, but I reckon this dark grey suits the lines/shape very well.
Quite a rare sight on the road, and it gets quite a few looks.
Handling is excellent, although the ride is a little on the firm side on rough road surfaces (I have 17" alloys, which presumably add to the firmness over standard 16" wheels).
Performance is pretty good, although not blistering. It's what I expected having previously owned a 2 litre twin spark 156. Acceleration is excellent if you get the revs going, but otherwise it cruises along very nicely.
The boot is a decent size, but rear accommodation is quite cramped, even for my 4 and 6 year old kids. Thankfully I have a Golf as a family runaround, and the GT is usually used by just me!
Did I mention that it's stunning to look at?
