    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) EVO Magazine James Bransby (Facebook) 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. This car has since been scrapped (2009). Although however the mileage was low at 27000 miles when the car was scrapped. So I think I am safe in saying it must of been in accident 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 29/12/2018. 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. Update 2 - Since found out this was EVO's fast fleet car. I have seen one pic of this but I have not copys of the magazine as of yet. Update 3 - it was another members on here. Goes by the name of DB and ran a private L7PCY. I did find the orignal thread but there is few photos. Y937DWL. As appeared in Car Magazine July 2001 and What Car August 2001. Both Multiple comparisons of cars (both had minis in the test). It was fitted with Aircon and cd player as a option. Still on the road at of 24/11/2018 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 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 have every option like L6upo) X42NFC ***New Find***. This a very recent find. Found in Vw Driver Magazine Jan 2001. It 1.0e. This is the best picture I have currently. Still on the road as of December 2018 V43RBW ***New find***. Thanks to James Bransley for this one. As featured in Autocar 20th October 1999. It is a Yellow Lupo Sport with Standard Tim and Tom interior. Also fitted with Nav unit (not available as an option in the UK I believe). The review was done at Dungness. Still on the road as of 29/12/2018. Any further info on this car would be appreciated.

    That's sad. Thanks Morgan for the heads up. I had the twin to this interior. It was 1 of 2 interior.

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Agreed. The other option I suggested while ago a creating a dedicated wiki to Vw Press cars (UK). However this did not go anywhere. If I was too do this option I would need a lot of help due to vast amount of models vw has had

    Wiki tab not working?

    Hi. Further to this. The press car thread needs updating but I have go no way of uploading more to the thread due to hitting my limits. I was suggested by other members to use the wiki for this. However it was dead. Any ideas.

    Ok. I have managed to break this thread. Got so many bits I need to update but I have hit the attachment limits on this thread. I think a website or something else is in mind. Any ideas on where to go will be great. In total there are the following I need to update X904NJO, X907NJO, Y937DWL, L6UPO (Red Gti), L6UPO Blue Tdi I need to add two more. (7 cars in total)

    RHD Lupos made in batches. But when?

    My GTI is a 05 for sure. I can even date mine. When i first got the car I found a sticker on the slam panel. It said alignment issue Feb 05. So mine went off the production line that month to be corrected.

    Something rare in the UK

    Ok. Sounds a bit odd the title. But was going to a local boot fair and spotted a fresco green lupo. Now what's special about this? In the UK they where sold as SE. Well in other countries they where sold as Cambridge and had more options. Which make this very rare. Its a 1.4tdi with open air roof in fresco green. Very rare. I just had to get some pics

    Modern Classic car insurance?

    Hi guys. Completely re-written thread as i have been looking into this. Here is a list of provdiors i have found. Or ones that don't provide Quotes Provided Classic Line Insurance. RH Insurance - Recommend on here by lupo_s_i. Lancaster Insurance Adrian Flux - on here as a trader Could not provide a quote Heritage - Where very apologetic. The person on the phone tried with there providor and they did not recognise the lupo as a modern classic (in any form inc GTi) Did not try Carole Nash

    Modern Classic car insurance?

    I thought i'd update this thread with useful information about modern classic insurers. If anyone wishes to help on this thread with suggestions etc. Please feel free to comment

    Camebridge edition

    Not cambridge in the UK. They where known as se. I had the 1.0. Here's a link to it. https://www.u-pull-it.co.uk/breaker-parts/volkswagen-lupo-2002/22708429
  14. lupo1.0se

    Another in Walmer

    Not bad considering. Its a SE so it would have the Cambridge rear lights fitted as standard.

    My Vw lupo OEM - One little surprise....

    I really like this car a lot. For me personally it combines the best bits of my two lupo's (the 1.0 and the Gti) into a good package. The LED lights. I prefer them compared to the daytime running lights on the Volvo which is basically dipped beam. So in the night you thought you where running dipped beam when you where not. I wish they where not supplied but its a legal requirement now..... The Lupo Gti is a car where the power is on all the time. Ok when you can use it. But the Up its good all the time as its turbo charged. Economy is very good. I regularly get over 55mpg on a run (I don't drive it daily though due to a change in circumstances). A longer motorway run in excess of 60mpg. The Lupo Gti I can get just of 40mpg on the motorway, the 1.0ltr lupo I had was over 50mpg but acceleration in that was so long (17 seconds!)
  18. hi all Here is my vw lupo It is 1.0se with optional extra cd player.
  19. Hi all So I had a thought regarding the press car thread. So this is where I am at. Vw don't keep any records on a system which shows what cars where press cars. My Vw Lupo list is the closest that exists to this as we speak. I now get people contact me directly (so far one) about whether there car is a press car. Without the community I would of missed out a few press cars/important details. So this where I want to go. Create a Wikia for this. This would expand the scope for this and would create quite a good easy to use DB for where to find Vw Press cars. Current status of any that survive etc. However I would need a massive amount of help to do this as it would take years. And certain costs would be involved. (eg Buying Magazines for their articles etc). Thoughts can written below. A poll has been put up to gauge the idea.

    Expanding the Press Car thread

    Fair point. The reason I put this suggestion up as Vw does not have any records of what cars they had. Hence the idea.

    My Vw lupo OEM - One little surprise....

    Ok. To round this story off. Basically the reason I bought the Volvo was the car I wanted was not available at the time (god damn Vw), ideally what I would of liked to have done is traded in the 1.0 lupo in for this car but that was not possible due to reliability issues, so I subsquently sold it, it was on the road for a year 1/2 after I sold it then scrapped by the end 2016 (Sad times, I do miss that car in some respects). But the Car I wanted came available this year. I ordered it in February and got it by Mid June (pretty good considering some people have waited since Feb and have not got a car). Here it is. I don't think I need to say anymore. Its been quite a year for me in a lot of respects. I still have the Lupo Gti too.

    Lupo GTi in U-Pull-It in York

    I have not been recently. I don't know what they have in stock. They had normal lupos in the past. Need to pay a visit. They are not online.
