Buy a copy of this months Modern Classics to read an 'Ads on Test' feature of this car; JJ loved it! We have just imported a 2003 Volkswagen Lupo GTI 6 Speed in Silver from Japan, handpicked by ourselves. This example has covered 85500 miles and is in stunning condition throughout. It is registered on a 2003/03 plate. We have completed all mechanical and servicing preparation which included replacing the battery, cambelt kit/water pump and a service replacing oil/filter and coolant. As is common on 6 speed versions of the GTI the 6th gear synchro hub and baulk rings have also been replaced. All the preparation work has been carried out by leading VAG indpendent specialist, Votex of Cheshire. A new set of Toyo Proxes tyres has also been fitted in the correct 205/45 size which is hard to obtain. Two keys are present, a remote key and a standard blade key. The overall condition of this car is superb inside and out with unmarked straight panels and aside from the current alloys (same size as the original Bathurst rims) and uprated Bilstein B6 dampers it is unmodified. The underside of the car is particularly tidy, helped of course by Japan's salt free roads.. The specification includes Air-Con, ABS, Electric Windows, Cupholders, Comfort Sports Seats, Airbags, Rear Headrests and remote central locking/immobiliser. If you have never driven a Lupo GTI before they are really good fun. Due to a low weight of just 1000 kgs and a Twin Cam 1.6 litre engine that produces 125 bhp they perform very strongly throughout the rev range and will pull from 30 mph in 5th like many cars would in 3rd! This engine and gearbox was only used in the Lupo GTI and its 200kg heavier Polo GTI cousin. Unlike the rest of the Lupo range the GTI used aluminium for the bonnet, front wings and doors, all of which are in superb condition with no dings. Thinner lighter glass was also used for the windscreen. Further differences over the standard Lupo models include a wider track leading to extended rear wheel arches and a different boot floor to accommodate the battery being moved to the rear of the car for improved weight distribution. The only panels shared with the regular Lupo would appear to be the tailgate and roof panel. All of which are significant changes that make a for a real modern classic.. Overall these pint sized GTI's are among the last proper hot hatches being light weight and normally aspirated, not requiring huge amounts of turbo power to shift ever increasing weight and complexity along!

Rust Free Fresh Import from Japan. We are delighted to offer for sale this superb 1993 Volvo 940 Turbo Estate with the sought after B230FT engine, a 2.3 litre 165 bhp full pressure turbo. This great car is not to be confused with the high mileage hard used examples that are often found in the UK, this one has come from the salt free roads of Japan and has led an easy life. It has a full main dealer service history from its years in Japan with no less than 22 services carried out over there. Since its arrival in the UK we have had a full service carried out, including cambelt change and new front brakes using genuine Volvo parts. British registration is in place with the car registered on a 93/K plate. The MOT is until August 2019 with no advisories. A full Japanese bookpack is present along with 2 keys and all import paperwork including the Japanese export/de-registration certificate. The specification of this car is comprehensive and includes Automatic Transmission, Grey full Leather Upholstery, Air-Con, Electric Front Seats, Electric Sunroof/Mirrors & Windows, Roof Rails, Drivers Airbag, ABS, Integrated Child Seat, Tailgate Spoiler, dashboard Boost Gauge, original Volvo Stereo, original (unused) toolkit & gloves. The overall condition is superb inside, outside and especially underneath due to the lack of salt on Japan's roads. The tyres are four matching Michelin's and the bodywork is superb with gleaming bright red paint and contrasting graphite coloured roof rails, gutters and window surrounds which combined with the 16" Hydra alloys and dark 'egg crate' grille give this 940 a slightly sportier look. We all know that the B230FT engine is a favourite with modifiers, this example is totally standard though and unmodified. I have covered around 1000 miles myself in this car and it pulls very strongly throughout the rev range and it's mid-range overtaking ability is particularly impressive. Fuel consumption seems quite good as well. This is a great chance to acquire a top example of one of Volvo's best models from it's era as a manufacturer of rear wheel drive cars. Please don't hesitate to call on 07721 326875 or 01625 420739 with your interest.
