Produced from 2004 to 2009, the Volkswagen Golf MK5 GTI is a small family car offered in 3 / 5 door hatchback body styles. The GTI is the performance model for the Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit MK5, and it was more expensive than it’s predecessor due to the added features and being built in Germany.
The Matchbox Golf V GTI is based on the 3 door body style of the Volkswagen Golf MK5 GTI. It made its debut for the 2006 mainline under the 1-75 series for the sub series of MBX Metal in Red. The casting has a number of MB684 and originally was in production from 2006 to 2017 when it was discontinued.
