Interesting VW fact...

Recommended Posts

Volkswagen was 99% of the way to releasing the Rallye Golf here in the US as the "GTI Rallye". It was going to be a 1990 model.They had a color list (which was Tornado Red, Black, and a color not offered commercially in Europe, but on models for racing, Alpine White). They also had developed US spec headlights, and regular, untinted US spec tail lights (no GTIs in the US at the time had smoked tails). It used Corrado side markers. THe body shell, being a G60, already had the glued-in windshield and US crash standard frame rails (for strength), so it just needed minor adaptations.

The only thing that stopped them...the guy in charge of the project was killed on Pan Am flight 103...
