2005 (55) Laser Blue GTI 64k

Recommended Posts

Probably going to regret this, but here goes...

This is a rare opportunity to own what is arguably the ultimate Lupo GTI. A completely standard Laser Blue, low mileage example with almost every optional extra.

Full details and spec:

·         2005 (55)

·         64,500 miles

·         4 owners

·         Full black leather interior

·         6CD Changer

·         Heated seats

·         Air conditioning

The car had two owners in London and then one in Norwich, before I bought it in June 2016. The list price would have been £14,500 when new.

The car is in excellent condition inside and out, having been enthusiast-owned throughout its life. In my ownership, it has been clayed and machine polished twice a year and washed weekly using snowfoam. I also had the wheels refurbished when I bought the car.

The car drives faultlessly. The engine pulls sweetly and the gearbox is a joy to use. All electrical equipment is in full working order, including the air conditioning, heated seats and six-disc CD changer. It has clearly been looked after by all its previous owners and has never been modified.

My only reason for selling is my commute is now longer and I feel it would be a shame to pile so many miles on what is a very rare, original example of a Lupo GTI.

In my ownership, it has only needed regular servicing, aside from a new alternator to solve the common squeak when the engine is cold. It has also just had brand new genuine VW front discs and pads. All maintenance has been carried out by an excellent local German car specialist in Sheffield. I have a folder full of receipts, service history and MOTs which date back to when the car was new.

The car has just passed its MOT with no advisories and I also had an oil and filter service done at the same time.

The winter tyres shown on the photos have now been removed and the Toyo Proxes, which are the recommended tyre for the car, have now been re-fitted, including one brand new tyre following a recent puncture. The private registration plate will also be removed and it will return to its original, LD55 EMX.

I think it’s fair to say that this car is one of the most desirable Lupo GTIs left in the UK. 

Feel free to private message me for more photos or to arrange to view the car.

£7,250 ONO

That is a lovely looking Lupo.

Possibly one of the best I've seen, very tempting, but that's a high price to stretch to...

I know it's a top-end price but it's based on age, mileage, the amount of extras, rarity and condition. Completely open to sensible offers though :)

Just edited the advert to say that the car passed the MOT with no advisories. Also realised it was due for a service in April so had the oil and filter changed at the same time.

I actually wasn't thinking that.... You have the dirty mind :D I was genuinely thinking this will come up Sticker bombed with grey rattle canned steels and the rear floor pan cut out (for some reason, as that's the new fashion) in about 6 months time.

1st thing on my to do list when i get a GTI is cut the rear floor out, it adds value and lightness at the same time. (this shouldnt need a /s, but there it is just in case.)

It clearly adds value plus it gives space to install a photon torpedo.
