Ah, designer-edition cars! The Malaise Era Cartier and Givenchy Lincolns! The Oleg Cassini AMC Matador! The Mark Cross New Yorker! By the early 1990s, you couldn’t get quite the variety of designer-edition cars that we saw in decades past, but Volkswagen wasn’t done yet!

I’d never heard of the Etienne Agner Golf before I spotted this one in an Oakland self-service wrecking yard, but a quick visit to VWVortex filled in the blanks. Only 1,461 Etienne Agner Golfs were sold in North America during their one model year (1991), and it appears that this one wears the no-doubt-much-coveted Mangrove Green Metallic paint. Sadly, this VW has been crushed and reborn as Chinese bridge parts by now.

    This is an interesting vehicle! But there are a lot of exclamation points! I think it might have been intentional, but I’m not sure! It seems like that kind of thing should be reserved for TMZ! Or People! But not TTAC!

    Wouldn’t it have made more sense for it to be leather like the “Coach” interior equipted Lexus?

    All these designer names remind me of some bad cologne back in the 80′s. And that’s a no, not on me but others!

    Reminds me of the occasional “Bon Jovi” Golfs I’d see running around Germany years ago…

    I’ve seen (and almost bought) an Etienne Agner Cabriolet before; maroon with a purplish top and little EA horseshoes all over the upholstery. I decided it was a little too effeminate, even for my wife. I’m still looking for a Cabriolet project today. Just don’t tell my wife.

    I can’t believe that it has cloth interior with the Aigner name on it, that just doesn’t compute.

    There are some things a man simply should not know, (and if he does, he should deny it) and who Etienne Aigner is is one of those things.

    Is it just me or does that logo look like a profile shot of a horse’s (or hippo’s?) rear end?

    My favorite (if you could call it that) of these designer edition cars has to be the Michael Kors Cadillac Deville. It may have only been a concept car though. It had a silver on silver bass boat flake paint job!
    Seen here in this video. Want to see what happens when you let these designers really run wild?
