  3. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    I mentioned this a while ago. So today I had some time and I have compiled every photo I could find of lupo press cars. With thanks to the following sources Ebay Men and Motors YouTube channel Top gear (old and new) Honest John Parkers Car Enthusiast. Drive Tribe Youtube RAC Autocar Gumtree Pininterest Lee Cooper ClubLupo Volkswagen Audi Car magazine The Golf Autocar Vwm Magazine Exchange Car Magazine What Car Magazine So lets start with the easiest ones. The ones where we have registrations for. (Not L*UPO series) T61DBW. New find. As appeared in Car Magazine in June 1999 as a comparison test against the Toyota Yaris. Also featured in What Car? July 1999 against a Ford Ka. It is 1.4s, it does have a three seater bench seat fitted. Dvla cannot find anything but it was on the road as recently as February this year (possibly scrapped?) T62DBW. New find. As appeared in Volkswagen Audi car magazine. It is a 1.4s with a rare three seater bench seat fitted. Still on the road as off 29/9/2017 T63DBW. As appeared on Men and Motors. Its a 1.4 Petrol. It has not been on the road since 2008/2009. X554CBW. As appeared on a VW accessories brochure. It is a 1.4 Sport. Sorn since 2013.

As appeared on old top gear with Vikki Butler Henderson testing it and several magazine articles (probably the most well known). It is a 1.6 GTi. Been off the road since 2009. Y924DWL. As appeared on Men and Motors being tested by Richard Hammond. It is a 1.6Gti. It had leather interior fitted. Still on the road as of 28/8/2017. Update.

  9. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Isn't it annoying. When you find a article. But it has flash bounce back. Here is said article. I have bought a couple magazines. I hope they yield more info. If anyone is good with photoshop and can remove the flash bounce back .Let me know. 11th July 2001 it was published. http://www.magazineexchange.co.uk/autocar-magazine-11th-july-2001-issue.html?&cat=1718
  10. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Bit of an update on T65DBW. Was a members on here. Also L5upo more info has come to light
  11. Copart Spotted thread

    Ok. I thought i'd create this as from time to time. Copart has some lupos come in as Salvage. Now just to give you a bit of back ground. When has a accident it usually decided in one of four categories. A (Crush it). B (Break IT). S (Structual damage). N (Non Structual damage). The last two used to be C (The vehicle is repairable but the costs exceed the vehicle’s value. Can re-appear on road) D (The vehicle is repairable but repair costs are significant compared to the vehicle value – including time delays to source parts. Can re-appear on road). Anyway. I have created this thread as sometimes cars come up which Clublupo members maybe interested in. The main reason because a UK register 3l is for sale on there. https://www.copart.co.uk/lot/38056677 & a Lupo Sport https://www.copart.co.uk/lot/36491177
  12. Future of Club Lupo

    After reading a thread elsewhere on the forum regarding the future of clublupo. I thought I would start this thread. There are some points that needs to be raised Availability of certain parts. Considering lupos are nearly 20 years old (the oldest ones). Certain parts are becoming difficult to get. Is something the Club should look into? Also what parts should we start looking into sourcing? I have asked the question with Vw heritage but they don't seem really interested in the Lupo, even though some parts have been obsolete for years (eg Aluminium bonnet Gti). I heard of stories where people who own gtis have waited over a year for a passenger side ball joint! Then again the Mk4 golf is slim pickings on there website. The future of the members cars. Are we going to see more OEM restorations and less modified cars? I am not sure at this present time. If anyone wants to add more to this. Feel free.
  13. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Have an update on y924dwl. It was on here. Did reg check and came up with a private plate. It clicked where I saw it. It was a member on here's lupo. Will update tomorrow
  14. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Update on L4upo sport. It has been found. It still has a L*upo plate. But not the original.
  15. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Interesting. If its L3upo that would claires old one. Also L4upo is still on a lupo. The others are not coming up as anything on dvla. But it does not mean they might of been press cars. The easy way is to do a check and see if they come back as a previous plate.
  16. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Another one found. T65DBW. Found a picture on google/pin interest and knowing T63DBW was a press car made me think is this another one. Came up as having L6upo plate.
  17. Volkswagen scrappage scheme

    Only ford and Vauxhall at present. But Vauxhall have been running a scheme before this.
  18. Volkswagen scrappage scheme

    It's only it for diesels. So I do not think that the amount of lupo/arosas on the road will drop by much. Also the tdi is £30 tax. A new up is £140. Also the tdi technically is still more economical. 75mpg compared to the up which the 60ps does up to 68. So I am not sure why you would trade a tdi for an up in the first place.
  19. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Ok. I had a suspicion about a particular car. I thought I'd do a free check. It came up as having a private plate L5upo fitted. Another press car. But no photo of it with the plate. But here is a pic. The reg is OW51LCZ. My suspicion came about because of the leather interior as I had one exactly like it (with side airbags etc). Here is a pic. Still on the road as of 30/8/2017
  20. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Just added a little info on the silver gti. (L2UPO)
  21. Lupo GTI, Engine cover "GTI" emblem

    It looks like a Belgium one. Maybe it was at the end of the production line and they used whatever parts they had?
  22. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Could be. I may of missed a couple to be fair. I also have a dealer vhs of the vw lupo too....
  23. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Red I yes. The l*upo plates turned out to be quite complex in the end
  24. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Added another one. Y938DWL. Should of done a completed listing search whilst doing this.
