Almost 40k EUR 1.9 GTI SEVE ?!

Seve Ballesteros the golfer?

 

Looks like a posh Gentry to me, rather than a real GTi.

True, it also has aircon, 40k worth of it :-P

 

You're right on the golfer, his name is in one of the pics just noticed. Pretty random for a golfer to get a limited edition GTI :-)

and just read in a forum that it's indeed a gentry with a sticker on it, a guy who owns one says it has a 1.9gti motor detuned to 105hp. 

 

+ airco, colour, wood inside etc makes it pretty much a Gentry.

 

40k is pretty steep if you ask me (at least in our current time frame)

It was the illuminated sun visors that gave it away to me. The sun-visors were a much sought after 'upgrade' part for GTis some years ago, along with the heated mirrors.

 

Fairly sure Gentrys had different 15" alloys too.

Indeed just checked pics, a step back those wheels :-)

 

The guy in the post said that apart from the 105hp his Seve had the wheels from the GTX

 

The Seve was a Spanish only run it seems, as that was where Ballesteros came from, the post I referred to was Spanish and the current car for sale in NL is Spanish import

The Gentry had the 405's 14" alloys but painted Aztec gold and used the 1.6 drivetrain except for those with ABS Brakes.

You can see the wide front track with the 1.9 alloys.
