This incredible flagship VW Golf R32 is finished in desirable Deep Blue Pearl Effect, (Colour Code LB5R). A spectacular deep gloss shine and unmarked panels reflect the pampered, garage storage and super-low 6,337 miles covered from new. Originality seekers will be delighted to see supplying dealer number plates front and rear, factory tint rear light lenses, chrome twin exhaust pipes and all R32 logos and inscriptions in pristine condition. Wheel arch apertures, door and boot shuts are spotlessly clean, the latter having factory stickers still intact. Look no further for the perfect modern classic performance car.
Factory optional Flannel Leather/Alcantara upholstery with R32 embossment, (Code JZ), to the ergonomically crafted König sports seats offer immense comfort and support and are virtually as new with no wear or bobbling to the Alcantara material. The only private owner even had the foresight to keep the original R32 floor mats unopened in the packaging and purchased a second set to preserve the carpets, all in immaculate condition. The three spoke leather steering wheel and aluminium pedals with R32 logo and 4Motion gear knob are clues this model is both very special and preserved in exceptional condition. All equipment and controls are perfect in condition and operation, including the climate control and heated front seats. The brushed aluminium is unmarked and there are a few tiny scratches to the plastic around the ignition. The boot area is pristine with the factory code sticker, further labels and even the 1L leather oil case and factory compressor, tyre sealant and screen wash still sealed in cellophane! A remarkable factory fresh cockpit defying its 16 years of age.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Special features of this first incarnation Golf R32 are the V6 3.2litre engine, 20mm lowered sports suspension and 6-speed 4-Motion transmission with sophisticated all-wheel drive system. In addition, an array of electronic driver aids help to best exploit the awesome power of 240bhp and 320Nm of torque at just 2800rpm! A top speed of 153mph is quoted along with 0-62mph in just 6.6 seconds. The engine bay is pristine and exactly as Volkswagen intended with all factory stickers and plates intact. The slick 6-speed manual short-throw gearbox is perfectly matched to this powerful, sure footed driving machine.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Unique 18-inch Aristo alloy wheels are immaculate and originality seekers will be pleased to see the factory fitted Michelin Pilot Sport 225/40 ZR18 tyres to all four corners. Large bright blue callipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the impressive stopping power, traction and safety with advanced features such as ABS, EBD, ESP and ventilated discs front and rear.
The name R32 originates from ‘R’ for Race and ‘32’ in recognition of the 3.2 litre engine, and this example is astonishing in every aspect. Registered new on the 1st September 2003 by Main Dealer Lakeside Volkswagen of Stoke on Trent, the car was registered to them and subsequently sold one month later to the first and only private owner, Mr James Kelly. A sales invoice in the history file confirms the purchase price paid by Mr Kelly of £28,194.13 less a used car reduction of £4,199.13. Incredibly and despite the exceptionally low and fully verified 6,337 miles covered, there are 13 stamped entries across two service books, all of which are Volkswagen Main Dealers. The most recent major service was carried out by Caffyns Volkswagen Plc in June 2019 at 6,267 miles with supporting invoice. A further huge folder contains every corresponding service invoice throughout as well as every MOT certificate dating back to the first in 2006. All handbooks, manuals and brochures and are included in the special leather R32 document wallet. Pampered from delivery and clearly evident in both the condition and history, this example represents a rare opportunity to purchase the ultimate Golf R32. It is difficult to even imagine a better example, let alone find one.
