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.
