This is a rare opportunity to purchase a genuine ABT prepared German ADAC Lupo Cup car built for the German equivalent of the UK Renault Clio Cup, a former support series of the DTM.
The car is one of three sold by VW Motorsport to the UK in early 2000’s.
This Cup Car was later prepared by Grant Motorsport and raced by Mark Hope in the 2004 UK VW Racing Cup, running a 1.6 185BHP AVY engine with AFH head on throttle bodies.
It was later upgraded to a 250BHP 1.8 20vT engine by Grant Motorsport but it was subsequently sold onto Anderson Racing Engines absent of any running gear. Purchased by us 18 months ago unfortunately we have too many current projects to keep it.
Dependent on using a 1.6 N/A or 1.8T it would be eligible for entry into several high profile race series including the VW Classic Cup, several CSCC series as well as a great track day car.
Project does not have an engine or ECU fitted but it does come with a GTI engine (no gearbox), reputedly 50K good runner, but this is only advised only by previous owners. Although the engine bay is set up for a 1.8T engine, so the hard work for this conversion is done (engine mounts etc).
In addition it comes with many boxes of miscellaneous spares, suspension, engine, driveshaft’s, wiring and other parts including plastic trim, several ECU’s, extra rear lights etc, etc. Not all of these parts are pictured, some maybe useful.
Seat and harness in car is only a mock up, seat needs new base mounts, it will need all usual race essentials replacing or updating. It also needs odd bits like a pair of LHD wiper arms and a passenger wing mirror as these bits are missing. Roll cage just needs a straight passenger door bar making as it has been misplaced.
Front end panels are all original pre production GTI steel pressings and has lightweight aluminium doors.
Custom Remus stainless steel exhaust for 1.8T engine, cable throttle conversion, strengthened rear beam with Bilstein rear dampers, seam welded front cross member, polybushed wishbones, Leda adjustable front dampers with Eibach springs, stainless braided brake hoses and fuel lines, OMP front strutbrace. Front coilovers fitted are standard units, sits on Bathurst wheels with Toyo tyres.
Comes with a V5C with numbers, along with photos and mail from previous owners, GTI docs and handbook.
Private sale, cash on collection only. Pick up from Solihull/Birmingham area. You will need trailer for the car, and probably a van for all the bits. It is a used race car, so if you want to come and kick the tyres, don’t worry they have plenty of tread. Car was white, painted flash red not long after, engine bay is still white. Some decals have previously been removed.
There is also an aluminium Flash Red bonnet for sale £100 extra (is keyed, but straight) ~5kg weight save.
Lastly a Raven Blue boot/tailgate very good, without a spoiler £50 extra or both negotiable with car.
