With an assertive sporting look this range topping VTS hot hatch is finished in Superlustre Wicked Red Metallic, (Code EKQD). Having covered just 52,971 miles from new with low owners, this example is simple stunning. The factory original paint finish is outstanding with a deep lustrous shine and uniform finish. Incredibly, the lightweight factory panels, (the unladen weight is only 935kg!), have escaped car park dings and the bumpers are virtually as new. There is a very light rub to one side trim strip, and miniscule markings do not detract from the near perfect finish. Unique 16v badging and the S inscription in yellow inform the knowledgeable this is the fastest most sought after Saxo and near impossible to find in factory standard specification. An unmolested marvel!
A wonderful testament to the care bestowed on this cherished car is the perfect condition of the fragile interior. The Crescendo velour upholstery only fitted to the VTS model is unmarked along with the door inserts. All carpeting is spotlessly clean as is the headlining and undamaged plastic trim. Full instrumentation including the VTS only oil temperature gauge on white dials remind the driver of the sporting credentials. The original RDS radio with single CD remains fitted and operational, and the factory paint code and data stickers remain affixed inside the driver’s door aperture. The boot area containing the wheel brace and towing eye is clean with only light marks to the entry metal lip. A pristine unspoilt interior.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The rev happy four cylinder 1.6 16 valve engine develops 120 BHP at 6000rpm to achieve a top speed of 127mph and 0-62mph in 7.7 seconds. No expense spared full Citroen Main Dealer servicing including a cambelt change in August 2017 has ensured superb mechanical performance, enabling the next owner to simply enjoy the thrill this car has to offer with piece of mind. The engine bay remains exactly as intended and displays factory stickers, plates and panel stampings. The five speed manual transmission offers light and direct changes with a sporty feel.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted 15” alloy wheels remain in good condition with light markings. Matching premium Goodyear Eagle 195/45 R15 tyres are fitted to all four corners with excellent tread remaining. The ABS braking system is servo assisted with discs all round and ventilated upfront to provide safe assured stopping.
