Hey everyone
As circumstances prevail I am looking to sell Project Polo V8
However I have no idea what such modified vehicles are worth...so a little help please
For those that don't know the car ...it is
1995 3 door 6N Polo in black
Standard interior in reasonable shape for the vintage
Exterior is scruffy but compliments the sleeper look.
Carbon Fibre bonnet for front weight reduction
Power steering but no ABS or air conditioning
Current engine is an Audi BBK Chain drive 4.2 V8
Running MS2 Megasquirt and tuned by Megasquirt nz in Tauranga
Lightened flywheel with new hi spec clutch
5 speed gearbox from a TDI with a OBX LSD geared in 5th @ 2000 rpm @ 100Km
!5" x 7" alloys with new Goodyear tyres
4 pot front brakes with drilled discs on front with standard discs on the rear
Battery in the boot.
Fully certified by Nostalgia motors in Hamilton
Last time I weighed it was about 1050 KG
Power is about 225KW @ the wheels with enormous torque in any gear
Yes it is very fun to drive
Cheers

Its hard to say. Its an awesome build. I wouldn't want to offend, and more than likely Id be wrong.

I followed your build on this and you have obviously done a very professional job, but putting a value on something like this is very difficult.
To the right buyer, it is probably worth quite a bit, but the difficulty is finding that buyer.
Probably all you can do is post on TM at a highish price and test the market.

Can you link to the project thread of the Polo in question, Lee? I'd love to check the car out.

Thanks Mr administrator

That series of posts were the initial years but much has been changed and refined

And as far as I know this build configuration is probably unique in the world.

If anyone is interested please contact me on 021 656 501

It got posted on the VASK facebook page, so I think that many of those will be people that are just interested in seeing how much it goes for. I really hope there are 2 people that will fight it out. But it's pretty niche. Begging to be transplanted into a MK2 golf maybe?
