A stunner with a love for hot hatches is a lethal combination

Instagram model Christin Franke (@christin_xs) has a fetching Instagram account. She’s our featured car girl of the week, and if you check out her Instagram page, you’ll see why. The brunette stunner not only looks good in front of a camera, but she also happens to own one of the finest hot hatches of all time: the Mk 5 Volkswagen Golf. There’s no more lethal combination than a beautiful young woman and a hot hatch that screams “driving pleasure!” Christian Franke stands out her own. Put her in a Volkswagen Golf Mk5, and she turns into someone deserving of our car girl of the week title.

You know you’re doing something right when you’ve amassed more than 40,000 followers on your Instagram account. That shows that you’re relevant in the eyes of a lot of people. Christin Franke not only has that many followers, but she also receives a healthy amount of “likes” and comments on her posts. We can understand why. It’s not just about her captivating looks, though that’s a good place to start. It’s also about her other passions in life, which include fitness and the art of body ink. She’s part of a team of influencers for the Rocka Nutrition brand and, judging by the way she treats her body, she looks like a good choice to proudly rock the #TEAMROCKA hashtag.

In the end, it really is about Franke and her Volkswagen Golf Mk V. The spicy hot hatch — it was called the Rabbit when it was sold here in the U.S. — doesn’t look the part of a performance fiend, but it does feature a potent 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produced an impressive 150 horsepower in its earlier form and 173 horsepower in late models. From the looks of it, Franke’s Golf isn’t even a standard Golf. It’s a Golf GTI, which means that it packs a more potent 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 197 horsepower.

Christin Franke not only knows how to pose for the camera and take care of her body. She also knows her hot hatches. Excuse us for applauding that. That’s the kind of girl who deserves to be named our car girl of the week.
