Lupo Sport Blog - Last Update - 26/11/2012

Recommended Posts

I'm not planning on doing loads of things to totally change the look of the car because I like the way it looks. I've always been a firm beliver in buy a car you like the looks of and you don't have to do much to make it look ultra pimp!

So I started off with a 2001 Lupo Sport Colour Concept. The fact that its a Colour Concept and was more of less around the corner from me that swayed me to have it.

Was pretty standard and had decent mileage (52k), had FK coilovers, smoked headlights, catback stainless exhaust and a chequer roof. Few other little bits like chrome handle covers and black badges. I agree with all of it except the handle covers. So it was already a good base for a project.

Was very impressed wit hthe right on FK coilovers and the exhaust is very quiet, which is just what I would want! It has a bit of a rasp to it when you boot it but its not the kind of thing thats annoying on the motorway. Infact, you can't hear it if your just crusing along with music on.

Anyway, here it is as I got it:

Then Mitch lent me his Zender Turbos for Volksdevil Anual Gathering.

Think they have really finshed off the look of the car externally. Just a shame I have to give them back. So need to find my own pimp alu felgen. Probably won't be a while yet cause I have no monies

I have a few plans in my head. I want to make the car pretty much MINT. Like anything thats got a scuff or a mark on it in the interior will be reaplced. Mostly be using genuine VAG parts.

Once I have some cash things will start to be replaced.

At the moment I'm just having fun driving it. Although if your get a heavy right foot the petrol gauge starts to disagree with you sad.gifsad.gif

Love it, you've got yourself a good motor there, being a colour concept sport and the fact that they are probably the rarest lupo you can get. I might have to take a trip to AAS and see what they can do for me.

Bloody Gaz still has the c-spanners so I can't laugh.gif style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

I like it at that height, looks pimp and never scrubs or bottoms out. So I'm happy!

its such a good drivers car that I wouldn't want to lower it to the point where I have to look for pebbles on the road!

Roof might be staying now, I've grown to it!

hehe, they are mint wheels but they are a quite the bitch to keep on top of.

Today I got rid of the nasty big tax disc holder and replaced it with a lovely alloy one...!

Zurich can kiss my ass

Dogtown. Revolutionised the way people used to skate from being pretty much as upright as you can be to low down surf style.

Makes kickflips look gay.
