For sale Lupo GTi (LHD UK registered, LPG converted)

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Updated with lower price £2500

It's with deep regret that I am listing my beloved Flash Red Lupo GTi for sale.
I've owned this car since July 2010 after dreaming of owning one since I ever first saw one. When I purchased it, it had only covered 52,000 miles & was in fantastic condition.
 
In my ownership it's wanted for nothing, my father works in an MOT station in Poland and would have it on their ramps every other weekend ensuring it was in tip-top condition. I was also very fortunate to have a VW specialist garage just a few doors down from my home in Poland.
 
The car has been converted to UK specification & registered in the UK (but remains LHD) - this involved buying new Xenons to alter the dipped beam, & also changing the odometer over. The car 'gained' 4000 miles when undertaking this conversion but VOSA/DVLA would not take it into consideration at point of UK registration. As a result, the car is sitting on 117,300 miles and is unlikely to increase.
 
The car is currently MOT'd until July 30th 2016 but I will put 12 months MOT on it at point of sale.
 
I have service history from prior to my ownership, however it's in French. In my ownership the history it's as follows;
 
July 2010 - 76,000km - Gearbox Oil, Brake Fluid, Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters
Aug 2011 - 90,000km - Radiator,Starter Motor, coolant, Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters
May 2012 - 97,500km - Thermostat, Clutch, CV Joint
June 2012 - 98,000km - Lovato LPG conversion
Sep 2012 - 105,000km - Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters
Jan 2013 - 110,000km - LPG service
May 2013 - 117,325km - Cam / Auxbelt,Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters & coolant
May 2013 - 118,000km - LPG service
Mar 2014 - 138,000km - LPG service, spark plugs, HT leads
April 2014 - 141,000km - Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters
Dec 2014 - 166,000km - (104,000m) - LPG service, spark plugs, Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters
Dec 2015 - 182,000km - (110,000m) - Engine oil, pollen, cabin, oil, fuel filters
 
The LPG tank is 45l, which costs approximately £24 to fill from empty. This can do over 300 miles & will automatically switch to petrol should it run out. The car is registered under an X registration & is under a dual fuel road tax band.
 
The interior is in great condition for it's age, but the grab handle on the passenger side is showing signs of wear.
 
Externally, the paintwork is, again, in great condition, even more so when you consider this is a 15 year old car, the paintwork is flawless with very few bumps/scuffs.
 
The car comes with 6mm tread all round on Contisport Contact 2 tyres which are by far the best tyre I've used - offering excellent grip in both the dry and the wet.
I will also be prepared to throw in the spare set of alloys which have a year old, 6mm depth Nokian winter tyres on, should the asking price be met.
 
The car also has the original clocks available in kmph form.
 
Naturally, the car does have a couple of bad points but they are relatively minor. The lacquer is peeling on the rear spoiler, I did try to capture it in the photo but it's not that easy to photograph.
There's a paint chip on the left hand wing mirror (pictured) and a notable chip missing from the upper side skirt/sill inside the door. 
 
The car has also recently had new rear shock absorbers fitted (2016) although I can't find the receipt to ascertain when it was.
 
The car has been lowered on Eibach proline springs which offer a nice subtle drop & reduced body roll without impacting comfort. The car also has a front OMP strut brace.
The steering wheel has been retrimmed in leather with red TDC indicator & red stitching.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on 07783365148 (Anna)

If you need any photo's of anything specific, please let me know.
 
Open to genuine offers but not interested in a part exchange as we have 4 cars between 2 of us already (hence the sale)

You can change it to RHD,if you want, but there is no difference in driving, insurance cost or tax.

Lovely car, being lhd adds cachet, shame it's so far away otherwise I'd have had a look at it with a view to buy

Its sold now. Ania is heartbroken and regrets it already. 

Especially when the brake discs on the abarth retail at £500+ and need replaced after 38k!

The new owner is very lucky, 'Lupek' was cherished more than any other car, although the Porsche is becoming very spoilt as of late with all the parts I'm replacing!
