|Colour||Deep Blue Pearl|
Presented in show condition, our 2003 Volkswagen Golf R32 is just stunning! Finished in unmarked Deep Blue Pearl with 'as new' Black Leather Bucket Seats, this incredible example has covered just 27724 from new.
Clearly cherished since new, the Deep Blue Pearl paintwork on this example is just flawless. We have tried many times to find some very small defect that we could mention, but the truth is...we just cannot find anything. The car is completely unmarked. The paint itself has been detailed to a very high standard and is free from any polishing swirls that accumulate over the years. It is needless to say that all factory fitted panels still remain. The car has appeared at various VW concours events and it is very easy to see that the car would deserve being shown at this level. All factory fitted tinted glass is unmarked and the headlights are crystal clear and free from any damage. The R32 badges are as new. This is by no means your average or very good example...it is exceptional and will appeal to anyone that is wanting one of the very best examples that are left. This is certainly a car to use and enjoy sparingly, weather permitting, and one to just tuck away for a certain future investment.
Internally, the cherished and loved theme continues. The interior is unmarked and as close to new as you will find. The factory Konig full leather heated seats are superb and the R32 emblem is fully intact. They have suffered no sagging or softening of the bolsters and all the stitching is clean and intact. The door cards and dashboard are unmarked and as you would expect, they are free from any scuffs or damage. The headlining is perfect. The R themed 4 Motion leather gear knob is free from any scratching or chipping. Some 14 years after rolling off the production line, the cabin still feels and smells as fresh as the day it was new. It is a very special place to be...
The original 18" OZ Aristo alloy wheels are superb. They are damage and scuff free and are shod with the correct Pirelli P Zero Nero tyres which are as new. The gloss blue brake calipers are clearly visible and are still vivid blue and unmarked.
Mechanically, the car is superb and has been maintained correctly throughout it's life. The engine bay is spotless and very well detailed. The only addition to standard factory specification is a Milltek stainless steel exhaust system. The car sounds amazing! The drive is superb and as you would expect from a low mileage and well maintained example. Below is a list of servicing work carried out;

In addition to the above, all old mot certificates are present and substantiate the very low mileage.
Complete with current V5 registration document showing just three previous registered keepers, the original and complete VW R32 leather owners handbook pack, original and stamped service booklet and two original VW keys. The car will be provided with a full 12 months mot upon sale.
With VW only producing very limited numbers of the MKIV Golf R32, approximately 2383 for the UK market ( if the figures are correct ), demand certainly exceeded supply from day one and it was not uncommon for good, low mileage examples to be changing hands at well above the new list price. We would think that it is only a matter of time before these cars are firmly established within the classic car market and collectors will be seeking the very best examples to store away. We would strongly suggest that our car falls into this category and you would be hard pushed to find another genuine example that is any nicer.
