2002 Citroen Saxo VTR - Two owner, 40k mile, unmodified For Sale
2002 Citroen Saxo 1.6 VTR, Icelandic grey
Excellent condition; the odd mark, parking dint, minor black plastic deterioration. None of the usual lacquer issues these metallic colours on the Saxo can suffer.
Wheels practically unmarked - almost new Hankook tyres all round.
Interior practically unmarked - carpet looks like new, rear seats have barely been sat in (if at all!).
Clean engine bay - slight bits of very light surface rust, nothing major - no rot in the usual places for one of these; doesn’t leak a drop of oil.
Engine is smooth and smoke free (as you’d expect with this mileage!), gearbox is slick and tight, no knocks from suspension etc.
Simply selling because after a taste of having a classic car in the garage I want to go older so have set my sights on a 1960s classic - I’ll no doubt regret this decision after having such a trouble free ownership experience with this ‘modern classic’.
Second owner from new - the first was a lady owner in Eastbourne, from new until 2016. I’ve done less than 2500 miles in the car in the time I’ve owned it.
The car has been covered inside a dry garage and driven only on dry roads - this was bought as a modern classic, something fun and interesting to have in the garage for sunny days.
The Saxo comes with two keys, alarm fob, original key card, original document wallet with all books / documents from new and fully stamped up service book from new and up-to-date.
Stack of receipts charting the entire history of the car, from new brakes right down to the smallest of plastic screw covers.
Records going back to when the car was new, including original dealer supplied registration plates.
Done 7,000 miles in the last 7 years, here’s the breakdown:
Here’s a run down of the most ‘major’ work I’ve had done since buying the car:
Nov 2018 - refurbished front brakes / brand new rear brakes including calipers
Aug 2017 - new ECU / immobiliser transponder
July 2017 - crank sensor
Sept 2016 - new springs
Jan 2016 - new remote key fob
Dec 2015 - timing belt
Fitted with wind deflectors - only modification (how many Saxo VTRs can you say this about?!)
All work comes with receipts, and in the case of the ECU replacement the work was carried out by a specialist with correspondence and full details to accompany the car in the history folder. Note: The immobiliser light flashes on the dash as the new ECU has not been coded to the car - this is a main dealer job, I simply haven’t bothered; my local Citroen dealer is terrible (had awful experiences with previous cars) so I wasn’t going there after spending so much money on the new ECU (doesn’t affect the car at all).
The ECU failure is a common issue with these, but this one is thought to have failed simply through lack of use - it just wouldn’t start one day a couple of years ago.
The car comes with a pile of spare parts, including various fixtures / fittings, spare full size alloy wheel, and original magazine articles / dealer promotional material / brochures I’ve collected.
The car is currently fitted with a private plate (reads ‘Series 2 VTR’), this isn’t included in the price - for a further £250 I will include this, otherwise it is going on retention.
Everywhere you read, these sporting Saxos are going up in value and are a sure investment in modern classic car territory.
Having looked for a very long time to find a VTR this good, I can confidently say you’ll have to go a long way (and pay a lot more!) to find a better one.
Any questions, please ask.
Test drives will be accompanied and on sight of fully comprehensive insurance cover only.
Based in North Lincolnshire.
Would consider deal with BMW Z3 in equivalent condition or other ‘interesting’ classic.
