Supercharged Vento VR6

Recommended Posts

Trying to get a rough idea on the value of my R reg ('97) Vento VR6 which I bought as a project car approx six years ago. I would be looking to include the donor car (P reg '97 Golf VR6), along with some new and second hand parts in the valuation.

I have come to the realisation that I simply don't have the time to commit to this any more (work, two small children etc etc) and while I appreciate that   the value of some components individually might be reasonable, I just don't have the time to strip these out and suspect the value may be reduced as a result. Anyway here's what I've got......


Vento VR6 R reg Sept 1997

approx 177000 miles

mystic blue pearl

MOT'd until May 19th 2018

Vortech VF9 supercharger running about 7psi making 254bhp

16" mk4 golf BBS split rim cross spoke alloys (require refurbished)

mk4 golf GTI 288mm front disc and calliper set up


Climatronic air con 

lowered suspension 

bodywork condition is not great - n.s.f. wing badly corroded, n.s.r. quarter has a dent in it, a few other bits of rust, o.s. & n.s. sill plastics require replaced


The donor Golf has given up the following to the Vento......
