This superb Lupo GTI has just arrived with us from the car friendly climate of Japan and is now UK registered.
It is finished in bright red with grey cloth sports trim and has covered 125000 kms (77500 miles) from new. It was built in August 2004 and was supplied new to the Japanese market and is a 2005 model year car.
These pint sized Lupo GTI's use a 1600cc twin cam engine that develops 123 bhp in a car that weighs just over 900 kgs aided by the use of aluminium front end panels and doors along with thinner glass. For better weight distribution the battery on the GTI was re-located to the boot with the result that the GTI uses a different boot floor compared with the regular Lupo. Acceleration never drops off courtesy of the close ratio 6 speed manual gearbox. This engine and gearbox combination were unique to the Lupo GTI and its 200 kg heavier Polo GTI cousin.
The specification includes ABS, Air-Con, Remote Central Locking/Immobiliser, Electric Windows & Mirrors, Rear Tailgate Spoiler, Sports Seats, Xenon Lights, Alloy Wheels. It still retains its original VW stereo and is unmodified.
Included is a copy of the Japanese de-registration/export certificate, Japanese auction inspection report, full bookpack and Japanese service history up to 45000 miles. The tyre inflation kit is still present along with 2 keys (1 remote & 1 blade).
We have just had a full service carried out and replaced the cambelt kit and water pump at our preferred VW specialist, Votex in Cheshire. Four new Toyo Proxes tyres will also be fitted in the correct 205/45 size prior to sale.
The overall condition of this car is superb throughout with none of the rust issues that are often found on UK cars.
