Small but perfectly warmed: VW GTi

At the end of 2005, the world lost one of its and most affordable drivers’s The Fox city car is all very well for VW, but it was introduced back then, it the end of the Lupo and consequently no more GTi. And the Lupo GTi was the first new car I really wanted.

I was a year my degree when the Lupo GTi onto the pages of Autocar. on a budget that just extended to rent, tuition pencils and the occasional medicinal of lager, it was the affordable fun-to-drive I day dreamed about. The group 11 looked affordable, 40 miles to the likewise, and the £13k asking looked reasonably realistic The finance would have £250 a month after a £3k and I reckoned I’d be able

A Lupo GTi will scrabble your favourite road at a that seems so ridiculous make you check that seatbelt is securely fastened. more entertaining is the way it corners – a little body roll, but no of grip and plenty of steering to go with it. The first time you stretch its legs, you won’t that a little, upright could be made so entertaining, and you drive one for years without bored of such an improbable of fun.

These days they cost so much, either. You can now buy a tidy, 47,000-mile Y-reg GTi for under £5000; they’re rare, but tend to have well maintained.

For those of us who were sorely at the £12,995 list price the prospect of such a great for such a bargain price, is to irresistible. And the acid test is I’ve driven more faster, more powerful and more exotic metal my university days, and part of me hankers after the Lupo.
