The folks over at Donut Media have made a habit out of creating cool videos detailing the evolution of well-known models. And their latest clip takes a look at the 42-year history of the Volkswagen Golf.
Fittingly, the video kicks off with the Mk1 GTI of 1975, before moving on to the next iterations of the hot hatch in the 1980s.
But it’s not all about the GTI; even the all-wheel-drive Golf Rallye G60 makes an appearance, along with the first ever “off-road” Golf. Then there’s a pair of VR6-powered Golf R32 models and, of course, the Golf R.
