Black Sapphire pearlescent paintwork, Red leather upholstery, Removable soft top in black, Leather transmission tunnel, Leather Momo steering wheel, Push button start, ABS, AP Racing/Brembo brakes, Blaupunkt Lausanne CD33 radio, VX220 carpet mats, Spare key, Original bill of sale.
This ultra low mileage VX220 Turbo presents beautifully throughout having been under the careful ownership of only one keeper since December 2004. The Black Sapphire paintwork retains a deep lustful shine across every panel with a sharp metallic flake on closer inspection, the car clearly having been cherished all its life. Looking closely there are no unsightly scrapes or scuffs to the bumpers or arches, and the removable black soft-top is pristine. The paintwork is very consistent all round with no evidence of any previous poor repair. The underside is also notably fresh. All in all, an exemplary VX220 Turbo in one of the finest colour combinations.
This cosseted example was spec’d new with red leather seats, both in beautiful condition having seen only 4k miles of use. The interior throughout still feels really fresh and is free from any scuffs or marking to the delicate trims or entry sill covers. Finer details such as the gearknob and steering wheel both present like new, and in the footwells the exposed floorpans are well protected by a set of genuine VX220 overmats. A truly timewarp cabin and a fabulous place to enjoy some twisty B roads, especially with the roof off.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The VX220 Turbo is equipped with a 2-litre turbocharged powerplant delivering just shy of 200hp. Beneath the rear lid the engine bay is very clean and tidy, just as you would expect. Despite its super low mileage the car has been serviced four times: at 1,686 miles – 2,912 miles – 3,235 miles – and most recently at 4,632 miles. The last service was carried out in July this year and included a timing belt change and new water pump. A new battery was also fitted and a full vehicle health check carried out for the new keeper’s peace of mind. MOT’d until July 2022 she’s ready to be driven and enjoyed.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The VX220 sits on its original 17-inch alloys, all in perfect unmarked condition. The wheels are shod in a matching set of premium Bridgestone tyres with ample tread remaining at each corner. Brake-wise the car sports AP Racing calipers at the front with Brembos at the rear. The discs and pads have all been checked and are in fine operational condition throughout.
This surely unrepeatable example was first registered in September 2004. It has now driven just 4,640 miles in the hands of only 1 keeper since December that year. It was first registered to the supplying dealer, Archie Moss Vauxhall, before being sold to the current owner as a ‘pre-registered’ vehicle three months later, the odometer reading just 4 miles at that time.
The car has remained garaged under current ownership, only ever being taken out on dry days to preserve its amazing condition. Since arriving with us it has been freshly serviced and fully inspected for the new keeper’s peace of mind. We have also had the cambelt changed and a new battery fitted.
The History File is complete with a raft of invoices and every MOT certificate from 2007-2018, further verifying the car’s low mileage. It has remained in storage for the last two years but comes freshly MOT’d until July 2022 with no advisories. All handbooks are present, including the original service booklet, and even the original bill of sale from Archie Moss Vauxhall is still on file!
