Volks Cars started trading as a Golf Gti specialist back in 1992. The aim of our Company has always been simple – to concentrate on selling well-prepared, top quality examples of the Volkswagen model range, with a strong emphasis on the original and best hot-hatch.


 When the Company started life, the Mark 3 Golf range had only recently been launched. Since then, apart from an extra two generations of Golf, Volks Cars has also seen the introduction of a huge number of new Volkswagens including the high quality Lupo city car, the New Beetle, the stylish Passat, Sharan MPV and, more recently, the Touran, Phaeton and Touareg.

Just as the Volkswagen line-up has changed and expanded, so has Volks Cars.

Current owner Jon Wood started working for the Company back in 1995, having been a Volkswagen enthusiast for some years. He took over the business from founder, Peter Carrick, in 1999 when Peter moved into motoring journalism. With the expanding Volkswagen range the business expanded considerably.

By 1995 there were around fifteen, carefully chosen cars in stock; today this has grown even more and, of course, includes more recent models such as Golf R32s, New Beetle

 cabrios, as well as other saloons, hatches and estates from the VW range. However, Jon hasn’t forgotten his roots and still scours the country for the very best examples of classic models, like the Mk2 Golf Gti and Corrado VR6 which are always in demand.

Once you’ve bought a car from VW Specialist Cars the deal doesn’t end there. We value our existing customers and can offer a wide variety of after-sales services, including bodywork to high standards and electrical diagnostic and installation work, with alarms and ICE a speciality. Our reputation is your guarantee.
