The Golf GTI Dark Shine is the dream concept car that 13 Volkswagen and Sitech apprentices created nearly on their own: a sporty 2-door Golf GTI featuring a two-tone colour scheme. True to its name, the front is painted in dark Daytona Grey Metallic and the rear in unique R-yellow pearl effect. The modified 2.0-litre TSI engine develops 290 kW. Over a period of about nine months, the apprentices modified a standard Golf GTI Performance1 base to create their dream GTI.
This car was very popular in Bristol in the 1994 rave scene, Jimmy and Alex both had them, as did someone else, and I can recall getting lifts, listening to hardcore tunes, and generally ducking & diving around Clifton in Bristol in these beat up little numbers they're parents had given them as presents. I learnt a lot of the cool slang aphorisms back then too.
