First registered in UK 20.01.1998 this extremely low mileage VR6 has rather an interesting
story. The first owner served in the British forces out in Zimbabwe S. Africa, and he ordered
the car new from VW dealer out there taking advantage of the available tax relief though the
car went direct to UK to be registered and plated. The first keeper’s tenure lasted about five
years (circa 2002) whereupon the second owner had the various upgrades that are still present
today. Shortly after this he simply stopped driving it, and was put off the road some point in
2004 into dry storage at his premises and in immaculate condition with a very low mileage.
There she lay some fourteen years until circa 2018 when the third owner viewed and bought the
property and enquired about the car in the garage, and subsequently bought it.
The third owner (a top-level mechanical engineer) elected to do the timing chain and head gasket as a
precautionary measure, though covered less than a thousand miles in his tenure, he also carried
out a £10000 re-commission ( all details in pic 20).

The spec is unusual, in that VW never made a VR6 Colour Concept model in 3dr format. My
understanding is that they did offer 100 examples in 5 dr format to Australian market.
The car began life as high spec VR6 in Mystic Blue, with electric roof, digital climate
and heated seats. At some point during the modification process the interior has been fully
swapped out for colour concept kit, with extended leather to doors, dash, & centre console
with an extremely high level of finish. Other upgrades such as pedals, leather ribbed mats,
Alpine audio, Lockwood sill plates and white dials finish the cabin.
The car is sett off with a ridiculously expensive set of genuine BBS rims shod with excellent
tyres, the rims have been colour coded to body and are in wonderful order.

Its fantastic, and it drives like new, has to be driven to be understood, I mean like new. New
MOT carried out today one month prematurely so tested until July 2025.
Virtually everything has been overhauled. Check underside images.
I have a full video of the car. I also have a zip file of image of all the mechanical work
completed showing the chains and gasket being properly done.
