Independent Tyre Test - The Results

In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.

History of the Volkswagen Golf

Built between 1974-1983 the Volkswagen Golf MK1 was intended as a modern front-wheel drive hatchback replacement to the Volkswagen Beetle, being designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro (who had also designed the Lotus Esprit). Known as the Volkswagen Rabbit in the US, the Golf would go on to be the second biggest selling model in the world and replaced the high-volume sales of the Beetle for Volkswagen after sales of the Beetle started to tail off in 1970. In 1975 a sportier version of the Golf in the Golf GTI was launched, which would retroactively be known as the first popular hot-hatch that would lead to competitors outfitting their own hatchbacks with high-performance packages too.
