Volkswagen GOLF MK 3 VR6 1997
A truly unique opportunity to purchase one of the most iconic hot hatches of the 90's, the early predecessor which lead us onto cars such as the R32 and the Golf R series. When released in 1992 the VR6 was the first production small hatchback to be fitted with a 6 cylinder, and at the time the fastest hot hatch on the market; with a 0-60 time of 7.4 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph. The last three letters of this VR6's number plate read 'OCD' and that really sets the tone; it's a refreshing change to find a genuine UK registered, low mileage, unmolested VR6 with two folders full of paperwork and history, including the original order form, sales invoice and hand over document.
Meticulously maintained inside and out, this VR6 is absolutely beautiful being finished in Satin Silver metallic paint which was an optional extra at the time, as well as being finished in Supagaurd, again an optional extra at the time costing £299 (all of these can be seen listed on the order form). Un-restored and original, the arches are in an unbelievable condition and any imperfections are few and fair between to say the least. All four genuine factory fitted BBS 5 stud alloys are in excellent condition and unmarked, with invoices present for new tyres that have been fitted in the last 18 months. It really does need to be seen to be appreciated, and please see our website for many more photos highlighting the vehicles condition.
Totally original and completely unmarked, even fitted with the original floor mats and stereo; the interior of this VR6 will simply not disappoint. Optional fitted A/C (costing £425) which works as it should with receipts present to show that it has previously been re-gassed. The electric windows, electric sun roof and indeed all other electrics work as expected. Climbing inside is a complete time warp of the 1990's, a pleasure to sit in and even more of a pleasure to drive. It sounds fantastic, pulls as it should and drives without any knocks, bangs or rattles and the gearbox is lovely and smooth for its age.
Originally registered on 29/11/1997 by Normand Continental Ltd in Hammersmith London (a main VW dealer), the total price with the optional extras came to £21,218. Then owned by the same owner up until 2016, when it was purchased and brought up to Norfolk. The history folders that are present with this car are excellent, there are a number of VW service invoices, as well as other service and repair invoices, a vast amount of MOT certificates, original sales documents including the specification and equipment booklet as well as all of the original manuals and service book (stamped from 1997 to 2013), stored in the original booklet. Since 2013 when the last service stamp was entered the VR6 has covered just 1,350 miles but has still been MOT'd every year. It's current MOT does expire in December but we will be putting 12 months MOT on the car once a prospective buyer has been found or in December to make sure the car remains MOT'd as it has been previously.
As keen Volkswagen enthusiasts we are extremely excited to be able to offer such a VR6, so please do not hesitate to contact us with anymore questions or to arrange a viewing, as it really does need to be seen and driven to be appreciated.
