We are pleased to offer for sale this truly iconic 1987 VW Golf GTI in excellent original condition throughout, finished in Metallic Grey with a tasteful bespoke ‘Inglestone Butterscotch’ quilted leather interior.
This car has been meticulously well maintained throughout it’s life & is a true testament to its previous owners, supplied with an extensive history file containing detailed invoices showing work carried out.
In 2009 a number of subtle mechanical modifications were carried out when the car was fitted with an uprated ‘Brands Hatch’ engine bored out to 2000cc & ‘Newman’ 276 degree camshaft costing over £3000, delivering 140bhp when tested on the rolling road.
These modifications from the original factory 1.8 engine deliver a noticeable difference in performance, with lots of low down torque & a respectable exhaust note from the twin pipe rear box, correct for a widely acclaimed hot hatch of this era.
A ‘Sport’ chrome strut brace has been fitted to the front of the car, as well as an 18mm ‘KW’ suspension lowering kit, further contributing towards the uprated performance, tightening up the handling & bringing the overall driving experience together making it nothing short of an absolute pleasure to be behind the wheel & guaranteed to transport you back to your youth, putting a smile on your face in the process.
A modern day electric power steering system has also been installed which contributes towards the already very pleasant driving experience, although doesn't detract from how you would expect a car of this era to drive.
Following some light mechanical recommissioning the car has just been presented for an M.O.T in Dec 2021 where it passed with no advisories & as such now has a clean bill of health, with all advisories from the previous M.O.T in March 2021 now addressed costing over £1000.
Details of work carried out as follows:
- Brake Discs & Pads All Round
- Rear Flexi Brake Hoses
- N/S/R Brake Caliper
- N/S/F Anti Roll Bar Link
- Fan Belt
- Welding Repairs To N/S Sill & Both Front Floor Pans
Recently serviced in March 2021 by a VW / Audi specialist @ 126,329 miles, the car has covered less than 1000 miles since, this was a major service costing in excess of £750 with all filters, fluids & spark plugs replaced.
In 2011 a bespoke ‘Inglestone Butterscotch’ quilted leather interior was fitted which remains in stunning condition & is virtually unmarked, this cost in excess of £2200 & has been done to an exceptionally high standard, at the same time all door cards were trimmed to match.
A new headlining was fitted in 2019 although it has begun to drop above the boot section, this however will require nothing more than re-adhering as the material is very much still in tact.
The car sits on the period correct 15 inch BBS alloys in good condition with 4 good tyres fitted.
A very useable iconic modern classic that drives absolutely superbly, guaranteed to turn heads wherever you go & presents in beautiful condition.
Supplied with an extensive maintenance record, folder full of parts & servicing receipts, lots of old M.O.T’s, 2 sets of original keys & full V5.
