According to VWVortex, 1,461 Etienne Aigner Edition 1991 Golf Cabrios were sold in North America. I found one in a Northern California junkyard last year, and now here’s another. You’d think such an exclusive, one-year-only Golf would have legions of collectors driving the values well above scrap price, but the junkyard evidence shows otherwise.
I found only one Etienne Aigner Golf for sale on Craigslist, and the seller wants a maybe-not-so-realistic $2,900 for it.
Once again, we learn that partnerships between fashion houses and automobile makers, whether we’re talking about Oleg Cassini and AMC or Cartier and Ford, don’t translate into long-term— or even immediate— value for the automobile makers. How about other branding partnerships? Forget Apple or Google— I mean, of course, a Lemmy Kilmister Edition Aston Martin Vantage!
