What’s the story?

As mentioned, the GTI, also known as ‘Vrrrpha!’ is a car that carries history and tradition in South Africa. The rapid hatchback is also a firm favourite among footballers in the PSL today.  

Hot Hatch

With the Golf 7 GTI being a hit from the automaker, the later version was keenly anticipated. The Golf 8 GTI went on sale on 1 September while it also racked up the preorders beforehand.

That being said, Vila took to his Instagram stories setting recently where he was seen behind the wheel of the latest Golf GTI.

Going For A Drive

It’s not known as to whether he purchased the vehicle or if he could well have gone on a test drive, given that he tagged the Volkswagen Constantia automaker branch.

According to Cars.co.za, the new Golf 8 GTI is priced from the R669 300 mark onward and will be sold with a 3-year/120 000 km warranty and a 5 year/ 90 000km EasyDrive Service Plan and a 12-year anti-corrosion warranty.
