In May 1974 the first glimpse of the long-awaited successor to the Volkswagen Beetle, bearing the name "Golf" takes on the task of living up to its ageing but distinguished predecessor. The Golf was launched in May 1974 with a 1.5-litre engine rated at 51 kW (70 bhp). The Golf created a genuine sensation when it appeared, and by October 27th, 1976 one million had already been built.
