I seem to remember it has the same engine, transmission and chassis of the mkiv R32, which actually derives from the RSi.

It does have a pretty special bodykit with a huge rear wing, and the interior is quite special if I remember correctly. Also the wheels are the same as the R32`s I think!

Not sure how it compares, but

Bora V6 4Motions in the UK :147 (or so I am told...see Autotrader!)
MKIV R32s in Grey: 31 (?)

I also back up the suggestion of the VW Golf GTI MkII G60 16v Ltd (God - what a mouthful!). As for red Golf MkIV Anniversaries, there are exactly 600 in the UK split equally between diesel and petrol. A standard Golf? hahahah - I could almost agree with you there!

I've looked at autotrader out of interest and can't see anything that will tell you how many cars of a type there are??

I think you're right but I thought it was 80, they were all hand build by vw motorsport and I've driven one [:D]

Better than that, at one point a mate of mine owned two (him and his mrs). He now owns the 1.8T Caddy and if you look at this months Golf+ mag you'll see it! He still has one Ltd and it has a Bahn Brenner stage 4 'charger on it. Last time I saw it, it was 300bhp, coupled with 4wd - that's an awesome car.

Ditto, Golf mk II limited, its very rare!!

I remember seeing an RSi in the showroom where I bought my car from. It had some nice features but looked a little odd - but if u like bugs then perhaps its your thing. I remeber Evo slating it, but then driving a VW is not all about apex speed!!

I mean't to see the scacity; try a search for Boras and type 'V6' as a key word. Now do the same for, say, an R32 and see how many you get...they are very rare and good ones hard to find.

there are 500 R32's in the UK
There is WAY more than that isn't there?
