Nice. Was also found in the US in the late 70s/80s where it was known as the Rabbit.

Awesome!
I used to own a dark green 1977 VW Rabbit Diesel.
Very efficient on fuel, but a bit slow and smokey...

It seems to me that the gap above the windshield is too big... :(

Good car for the North America, indeed, but the American version had square headlights.

If you try to order one by clicking on the basket, it says no longer available. Either a software glitch or they sold out quickly!

I think the US Rabbit had round ones from 1975 to 1979...

Nice model, without this windshield. :wink:

This red car was my first car. A '74 model with a 1.1L gasoline motor and a little bit older than me.

Ah, yes, you are right. I was wrong.
If so, that's great! Very useful car for "modern era"
