Tornado Red Lupo GTi, 71k, FSH, G60

Recommended Posts

Selling our 2003/53 Tornado Red Lupo GTi.

I don't particularly want to be selling this as I bought it for my wife @Ann85 to replace her old (LHD) Flash Red GTi that she sold in 2016. It was her first ever car and she had it for many years, it took us around Europe on multiple occasions and never missed a beat. She cried the day she sold it & when I seen this car for sale I had to buy it for her.
Sadly, she wants a transporter/camper and we only have a triple driveway & the 987 (/997 ;)) is staying & she will need a daily too, which will be her Abarth 500 EsseEsse - so the Lupo must go.

The car:

Owned by the previous owner since 2016 at 39k & previously by an old lady (cliche, I know) who rarely used it at all.
I tracked it's ownership since then and when Paul came to sell it, I snapped it up for my wife in August 2018.

I bought it on 70,360 miles, it's now on approximately 71,500. Given not much has changed in the last 5 months aside from the G60's I will just paste Pauls advert below.

The car has taken a small knock to the rear bumper prior to my ownership and as a result has a small area of damage around the rear number plate. I did plan on replacing the rear bumper but it never really bothered me. I have really enjoyed owning this car, it took me a long time to find the right one and I will be very sad to see it go to a a new home. I will put 12 months MOT on it for the new buyer and fix any advisories highlighted.

The car is located in Corby, Northamptonshire

£4,500

I think Angry is the wrong word. Jealous.

Ray isn't a clean up service, if he has to do it much more I can see him chastising people soon.....

Ray doesn't get paid for his time... completely voluntary I believe? All for the good of maintaining the high level of moral fibre on the forum. And for the enjoyment of Lupo enthusiasts :)

I'll get 'as is' photos on my day off (Wednesday)

The car is underneath a car cover & is very rarely driven so the condition really won't change much if at all.

It's a single driveway as I said, so photos aren't the easiest to take, more so as I work 03:30-18:00. 

The wife took a couple today but you'll see there isn't much room as we leave space for the bins too pass on one side. Bumper damage also below.

If I get time & weather permits it'll be machine polished, but that's unlikely as my dog has had an operation on its leg and needs constant supervision.
