In 1990 VW released, to the German market only, the mk2 Golf Fire and Ice.
All were finished in a very dark purple metallic and had probably the most outrageous interior trim VW have ever made!
According to this German site, approximately 2,500 Fire and Ice models were produced in the following variations:
1.8 90bhp - 2,000
1.8 107bhp 8v GTI - 200
1.8 129bhp 16v GTI - unknown made
1.8 160bhp G60 GTI - 70
1.6 80bhp TD - 60
As you can see, most were the standard 1.8 version. All other engine options were "special order".
The specification of the Fire and Ice models was as follows:
Metallic lacquer paint finish "Dark Violet pearl"
Green tinted glass
15 inch "Estoril" alloys with 185/55 tyres
Double headlight grill with black VW badge
Colour coded big bumpers with deep front spoiler
Clear front indicators and darkened rear lights
Large Fire and Ice logo on the rear quarter panel
Pink (!) rear "Golf" badge
Height adjustable sports seats
Seats and trim panels in custom Fire and Ice cloth
Various interior Fire and Ice logos
