    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 (Facebook) ClubLupo Volkswagen Audi Car magazine The Golf Autocar Vwm Magazine Exchange Car Magazine What Car Magazine Vw Lupo Owners club facebook (not maintained or affiliated with clublupo.co.uk) Morgan Rowlands (Facebook) Blade (ClubLupo) matthewrspca (Clublupo) Volkswagen Driver JB1.0e (Clublupo, for the tip on Volkswagen driver) Matthewrspca So lets start with the easiest ones. The ones where we have registrations for. (Not L*UPO series) T61DBW. 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, also unusually had heated seats fitted too and Air Con. Dvla cannot find anything but it was on the road as recently as February 2017 (Scrapped) T62DBW. As appeared in Volkswagen Audi car magazine and Top Gear Mini Test (August 1999). It is a 1.4s with a rare three seater bench seat fitted and heated front seats. UPDATE - Since found a current picture of the car. It still retains its original 3 seater bench seat. But It looks like it has been modified with lowered suspension and 15" wheels (according to advert). Pic since added. Advert is on last post. Needs a new gearbox.. 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. It had a votex grill (similar to ABT) and spoiler fitted as an option. MAJOR UPDATE 11/3/2018. See last page of thread. Also this had light grey interior. X904NJO. As appeared in What Car? April 2001 against a Citroen saxo. Also appeared in Car Magazine April 2001 against a Peugeot 106 gti. Still on the road as of 5/10/2017. X907NJO. As appeared on old top gear with Vikki Butler Henderson testing it and several magazine articles (probably the most well known). Also appeared in the last article about the Lupo Gti (autoexpress 24th January 2006 "Canned but able"). 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. After running through the registration plate through a free check it came up with a private plate. It turns out it was Alex's (Aka Fatttty) old gti. Here is the build thread for this. Y937DWL. As appeared in Car Magazine July 2001 and What Car August 2001. Both Multiple comparisons of cars (both had minis in the test) Still on the road at of 5/10/2017 Y938DWL. As appeared in Autocar Vw Lupo Gti vs Vw Golf Mk1 gti and Autocar MG ZR vs Lupo Gti. Did a regcheck and came back as nothing. Could be scrapped or on a private plate. OU03EZZ. As appeared on top gear in the tdi vs petrol challenge and magazine articles. It is a 1.4 Sport (not sure whether it was accurate considering it would of been better tested against a 1.4s). Still on the road as of 28/8/2017 *** New find*** To be honest. This one I heard a rumour back in 2016 that this was a press car. But no evidence had come up until recently. Thanks to JB1.0e and Matthewrspca. This has now been cleared up. It was used in Volkswagen Driver Magazine to review the 6 speed box. Here is a pic of the article and how it stands today. Still on the road as of 17/5/2018. Whether this is L6upo or not remains to be seen (no evidence as of yet, but it does every option like L6upo)

    Any arosa meets in Kent near dartford

    Used to be one with lupo in Bluewater back in 2012. Things/circumstances change. I am the only one left from that group still with a lupo (albeit with another members who used to go)

    Stonor Park 3rd June

    Ok. Is anyone planning to go this? Last year (2017) I was the only lupo in the concours category (any lupo) so it would be good to get a few more to go + it 20 years since the first lupo was produced. There is two category's you can enter Modified Lupos/Polos Un-modified Vw 92 on (category is was in) Here is the website. It is at a discounted rat if you book in advance. http://www.abvwc.com/stonor.html Any interest just message me here.

    Stonor Park 3rd June

    Was it a blue one with a 3l front. The reason why for the poor turn out is because it clashes with gti international at rockingham

    Stonor Park 3rd June

    And this clashes with something else too. I won't make this either!

    Stonor Park 3rd June

    I was meant to update this (sorry). Change in circumstances means I cannot go now. Bit gutted but other things crop up. Will make sure I make it next year.

    Its not my car. Although I am tempted to powder coat it.

    GTI engine guards and sound dampening

    The sound deading is a standard part I believe. The main thing you will need is clips. It is not fitted on 1.0ltr models though. Not sure on 3l

    A couple of updates on sources (Thanks JB1.0e) and a little more info turned up about 1.4s l2upo

    Bought a New Lupo

    there was none for sale on ebay. Tried another place but that did not turn up anything either. Did get one with "potentially" a new press car we did not know about. Found the back issue part has a good list. See - http://www.autometrix.co.uk/volkswagen/vwd_backiss_index.html

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Ok. So update time. Now as part of the research I have on press cars. I have a folder called "more research required". This is where a car is found but it is not coming up DVLA (due to reg changes etc) or due to a claim has been made about the car but no evidence to prove that this was ever the case. Well one of these cars it has come to light that it is a press car. the reg is OY02JCJ. This one I found at the same time as a lot of the previous press cars. I recalled it from and advert for sale back in 2016 when it was claimed "Owned by VW UK", it was not too far away from where I live (Maidstone). Anyway so what does this mean exactly? From what i can understand I suspect it is L6upo (2nd one). Reason for this I have seen a spec sheet provided to the press at the time which this car had every option ticked and was in red. No other car fits as L2upo (red) has no sunroof and the others are still in existence (X907NJO). Here are the pics. Thank you to matthewrspca and Morgan Rowlands for the help on this. So does this mean other cars may fit in this category? Possibly. I suspect the red and black l2upo are strong contenders for this. There maybe more but we will have to wait and see.

    Not particularly. If you get anywhere give me a shout
  19. lupo1.0se

    Bought a New Lupo

    Thats great. Now my theory is it is the red lupo gti with l6upo plate as that had every option ticked on it. The reason i struggled to prove it was it did not come up on reg check as having that plate and vw uk does not have any form of archive. So the information I have is thin on the ground/my own research

    Bought a New Lupo

    I do not think that's a genuine part. The genuine back box costs around £600 Before fit. Had to wait 4 months for mine
  21. lupo1.0se

    Bought a New Lupo

    Yes I have heard about this car. Is there any evidence saying that vw owned it. Then I can put this in the press car thread. I have a suspicion which one it is. But cannot prove it

    lupo editions: SDI automatic? 4WD?

    Did find a lupo se with a sunroof. Looks factory too. I did not think they did due to the nature of the se https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volkswagen-Lupo-SR-50BHP-999cc-Black-Petrol-Amazing-condition-for-year-999-00/192506696030?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D51002%26meid%3D2c0bd900097b48e8a1d4370613820d59%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D192506696030%26itm%3D192506696030&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aaead18fe-3faa-11e8-8fc6-74dbd1807424|parentrq%3Ac2c7c2b71620a86bc8fa9e03fff64946|iid%3A1

    Lupo PDF Brochures - Model Year 2000?

    I took photos instead because they are over two pages and getting the folds to scan is a pain. It is from the 2001 brochure (produced may 2000)
