In 1990 Volkswagen released Fire and Ice edition of the mk2 Golf for the German markets. Dark violet pearl finished and very contemporary trimmed edition was offered in several engine options.

G60 prefers the fastest and rarest versions of mk2 Golf that are equipped with "G-lader" magnesium supercharger with 60mm inlet. Engines are highly sensitive for the air temperatures and performance depends much of the weather. The G60 engine is developed from the earlier and smaller G40 version used in Polo G40. Original G40 unit was produced to compete with Polo's more powerful hot hatch rivals, such as Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9. Engine deputed in 1988 at B3 Passat's nose and was produced until July 1993. The ultimate G60 unit can be founded from VW Motorsport produced Golf Limited with 209hp and 247Nm.
