Delivered new in May 1994 by Normand Continental to PBW Road and Track Ltd who were a small leasing company based in Holland Park, London. PBW sold the car directly to their Client, who part exchanged her 1987 VW Golf GTI 16V against the VR6 – the original order is included in the history file.
The car was kept up until her retirement in 2010 and subsequent move to the South of France, given to her nephew who kept custardy of the car for a further 12 months covering 3,000 miles during this time, a trip to visit his Aunt in France accounted for most of this mileage.
In September 2010, the car was sold to a car enthusiast in Leicester, the mileage being 36,000 miles at point of sale. He kept the car for a period of 9 years and covered an additional 25,000 miles. During his ownership, he maintained the car himself and in the last 4 years the car was unused and dry stored.
In January 2020 the following work was carried out by a retired VW Master Technician.
In summary, a remarkably original Golf VR6 3 door manual, finished in Windsor Blue with Blue cloth interior. Importantly, the underside of the car is in excellent shape with none of the usual MK111 Golf corrosion issues, weld repairs or black underseal often seen. The car even retains its original one-piece leather gear knob and gaiter which is rare as they are often replaced with the plastic GTI version due to wear.
Overall, the car is a stand-out example and will sit well in any serious car collection.
