On July 23, the publishing house Hachette launched its new “costruisci the Golf” (build the Golf) collection that will over 100 issues provide all the parts to assemble a faithful reproduction to  1: 8 scale of the second series Golf GTI. The model is diecast with additional parts in ABS. The doors, the bonnet and the hatchback all open. At this scale the fine details of interior trim, the opening fuel filler, and detailed engine and mechanical parts are all included. Inside there is an accurately reproduced dashboard with an opening glove box.
