Lot 197 - 2006 Volkswagen Golf GTi Mk. V DSG Auto
|Odometer reading||23,590 miles|
|Result||Sold - £8,400|
Sharing the Volkswagen Group A5 platform, it debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in October 2003 and went on sale in Europe one month later. The GTi comes with Volkswagen’s four-cylinder 2.0 litre Turbo engine (FSI) which gives it 197bhp. Transmissions include a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG. The Mk. V is now regarded as probably the best incarnation of the legendary GTi after the original Mk. I of 1976-1983 and is fast acquiring modern classic status.
This superb very low mileage example from Japan is presented in silver with a GTi Tartan grey cloth interior. It comes with climate control, Xenon headlights, cruise control, UK sound system, mph speedometer, zero corrosion and is ULEZ compliant. It also comes with a mileage guarantee certificate and the vendor has applied for the V5C registration document from the DVLA which is hoped will arrive by the time of the auction.
Interested parties should note that this car now has been allocated a registration by DVLA and therefore the vendor has retracted his offer to deliver the car (stated in the catalogue) to its new owner when purchased as this Volkswagen can now be driven away by its new owner.
Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each Lot prior to the sale.

All registration numbers, engine and chassis details are sourced from registration documents provided to Historics by the client or representative or HPI checks and buyers are to satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of these details. Buyers are advised to inspect the vehicle in person or use a professional to carry out this service. Historics will not entertain disputes over descriptions.
