2011 Volkswagen Golf GTI (Mk6)

Photos provided by the vendor


  • Right-hand drive Japanese import
  • Just 83,414 kilometres on the odometer and we’re informed that the last service was performed at around 78,000 kilometres
  • Volkswagen’s 2.0-litre TSI engine powers the front wheels via a six-speed DSG gearbox

The Appeal

When you need a car that can handle a B road with the same aplomb as it can handle the school run, the Volkswagen Golf GTI has always been the answer.

True to form, this 2011 four-door Mk6 is a brilliant all-rounder with a six-speed DSG gearbox that can be as relaxed or as aggressive as befits the occasion. In right-hand drive and imported from Japan, this car is now ready to be registered in Europe and enjoyed.

The History and Paperwork

  • Displays 83,414 kilometres on the odometer which the vendor informs us is supported by the history on the export documentation
  • Imported from Japan in 2023
  • Cleared Italian customs in February 2023
  • We’re informed that the last service was performed at around 78,000 kilometres
  • It is due a recommended DSG service within the 60,000-80,000 kilometre range
  • Original Japanese book pack and maintenance record
  • There are some service stamps from its life in Japan
  • Two sets of keys

The Interior

  • Classic GTI tartan upholstery
  • All of the seats appear really smart with little in the way of wear
  • The black carpeting is very practical and in nice condition
  • The vendor points out some faults to the headlining where the fabric looks to have reacted to temperature or UV light
  • Aftermarket touchscreen stereo / infotainment system
  • We’re informed that everything works correctly
  • Analogue instrumentation
  • All the switchgear presents well
  • Useful boot space and generous rear seating provision

The Exterior 

  • Sporty styling with a discreet spoiler and red GTI stripes on the grille
  • Black paintwork
  • There are a few marks here and there including some scuffs to the nearside rear corner
  • Overall, the paint is smart for its age and with a little work, would look really smart
  • The striking alloy wheels exhibit some kerbing and general deterioration but remain quite presentable
  • The headlamps are becoming a little clouded, as is the top edge of the windscreen but this does not affect the driver’s view in any way
  • The underside would appear to be in very good order

The Mechanics 

  • 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine
  • Six-speed DSG gearbox
  • The vendor informs us that it drives really well, benefitting from its low milage and recent servicing
  • There are apparently no issues to report


There’s a lot to love about the Volkswagen Golf GTI. This 2001 example has fairly few kilometres on the odometer for its age and is in very good overall condition.

Don’t miss the chance to get your hands on one of the most accomplished hatchbacks of all time.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
