Down On The Street - Stuttgart Edition

Ever since my dad brought home a 1985 Jetta that subsequently ran for 205k (mostly) trouble-free miles, VW's "A2"-series cars have been a favorite, with GTIs being at the top of the heap. This A2 GTI was sitting on the street outside my Stuttgart hotel this morning:
Not a fan of the shade-shifting purple/green paint...
but two (or three?)-piece BBS wheels always look good on these cars.

'Round back there's a G60 badge, indicating VW's supercharged engine that came in the Corrado and select Golf models. Did this car receive a new powerplant somewhere down the line?
how low can you go?
