Volkswagen celebrated a very special milestone with the production of the 21,517,415th Golf at the Wolfsburg factory in Germany. With this car, production of the Golf exceeded that of the original Beetle, to become Volkswagen’s highest production model. The ceremony was attended by Dr Bernd Pischetsrieder, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, along with a number of political figures, members of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG and Golf production employees. The 21,517,415th Golf – a V5 model, finished in reflex silver metallic paint and fitted with refinements such as electronic climate control and parking sensors – was bought by a driver in Hamburg.
