Anyone that would like to see what happened to this car after I sold it should visit www.thirdgen(dot)org. Go to the message boards and do a search for "4.3 mile IROC-Z". There are informative comments along with videos and pictures of the car cleaned up and running. All the people that have commented how much work would be needed to clean it up and get it running are proved wrong. The car was sold by that owner over a year ago at a Mecum auction for $27K and has yet to surface again.
READ MY 5-PAGE COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW IN VOLKSWAGEN DRIVER MAGAZINE. FIND IT IN WH SMITH FROM 21/2/18 OR DOWNLOAD FOR JUST £3.99 HERE - https://pocketmags.com/volkswagen-driver-magazine/march-2018 THANKS TO LEE AND THE TEAM AT CHELTENHAM VW FOR SUPPLYING THE TEST CAR. CALL THEM ON 01242 362859 FOR A TEST DRIVE. VISIT http://upgti.com FOR ALL 3 OF OUR UP! GTI FILMS, HUNDREDS OF IMAGES & THE OFFICIAL PRICE LIST INCLUDINGS OPTIONS The Up! GTI press launch took place on 18/1/18 in Monaco but rather than go to the sunny South of France I waited just 5 days and thanks to Cheltenham VW was able to test drive the car on more representative muddy, greasy UK roads. There has been a lot of hype surrounding this car (CAR magazine gave it a 5 star verdict for example) so it was a genuinely interesting process deducing if all the praise was really justified. As a GTI driver for over 2 decades I think I have a good idea of what a proper GTI should be like and in this video I decide whether the Up! GTI is worthy of those legendary 3 letters on its rump. I should point out the roads were very slippery and the Goodyear tyres very new so I was unable to provide an ultimate verdict on grip and steering feel but everything else is covered - any questions feel free to post comments I will answer them as best as I can. Clarifications: I am six foot tall and as well as being OK in the back, the driving position was spot on even without reach adjustment of steering wheel (just like a mk2 GTI!) You can order automatic climate control instead of manual air conditioning for an extra £265 The red colour on the doors is only on red cars - it will be whatever the body colour is. Heated seats are standard Bluetooth is standard and is the easiest setup process I've ever come across - the head unit is asking for a connection without any prompting. Parking sensors and cruise come as a bundle for £300. You can add a rear view camera to this for £180, presumably the display screen will be your phone! Trip computer is standard. Red is the free colour, Pure white is £275, Deep black and Tungsten silver (aka Dark silver) are £520 A contrast black roof is just £125 Front Assist emergency city braking which oddly includes auto head lights and panoramic sunroof are two other options. The usual Up! £1800 scrappage discount for older diesels has yet to be confirmed for the GTI model (as on 24/1/18) Height adjustment of the passenger seat is not standard on 5 door models and I'd highly recommend it at £75 as if you are used to a Golf you will have become used to it and it does make the car appear low rent to passengers without it. The order books open on 6.2.18 but you should be able to submit your order with the dealer along with a deposit to get first in the queue. Factory ordered cars are due with customers March/April (not late Feb as stated in some reports). I've ordered mine I was so impressed (red) and can't wait - will make a follow up video soon explaining why

This very high mileage 1986 VW Scirocco is in remarkably good shape considering how far it's traveled and for how long. It is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder making only 135 HP, but at a scant 2,300 lbs, it feels sprightlier than the numbers suggest. And the Giorgetto Giugiaro design looks as good today as it ever has. Check it out on Wheelwell! https://goo.gl/r2nDoz
