2005 VW PHAETON V10 TDI LWB 4-SEAT (PRICE REDUCED) For Sale

FOR SALE: 2005 PHAETON V10 TDI LWB 4-SEAT (PRICE REDUCED BY £2K TO SELL) *Headline Details* - £6,000 (ONO) (WAS £8,000, SAVE £2,000) (NB. If making a lower offer, the likes of delivery, full tank of diesel etc will need to be reconsidered) - Full album of images available here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/pBzSTNtHrg9UDkXY7 - 2005 Volkswagen Phaeton 5.0 V10 TDI LWB 4-Seater - 1 of only 25 RHD V10 TDI LWB 4-Seaters ever built - 18 of these 25 rare cars are left (12 on the road, 6 SORN) (Data: howmanyleft.co.uk) - Owned by Volkswagen UK for 5 years on their VIP Fleet - Owned by 1 Private Chauffeur for 10 years (almost exclusively used as Dame Shirley Bassey’s ground transportation across Europe) - Owned by Myself (3rd Registered Owner) since January 2020 for business use (National Sales Manager doing up to 1,000 miles per week) - Purchased by Myself because of its capabilities as an unrivalled long-distance cruiser (at this price point) and as a project car to develop back to factory fresh condition - Upon purchase, it was sent straight to a Phaeton Specialist for a full mechanical refurbishment (all parts taken off and refurbed, including new Turbos fitted, new specialist oil installed and most importantly a fully refurbished 110,000 mile V10 TDI from a breaker Phaeton installed (if you know anything about these cars mechanically, then you know how rare this car now is having been mechanically refurbished in this way – the engines going in/out took 80 hours on their own, so I don’t need to tell you at standard labour costs how much I’ve spent!) - COVID19 has unfortunately rendered my role redundant and so with a heavy heart I must find a new home for this incredible piece of automotive engineering *Mileage & Condition* - 286,000 miles on the odometer (if you appreciate the time, money and care I have invested in the mechanical refurbishment of this car then the official odometer mileage won’t put you off) - 100,000 miles were spent on Volkswagen UK’s VIP Fleet, meaning this vehicle was maintained and serviced at the highest levels possible with no expense spared - 170,000 miles were spent as a private chauffeur car (almost exclusively for Dame Shirley Bassey across Europe), meaning again the vehicle was maintained and serviced fastidiously - 15,300 miles spent as my personal car, taking me across the UK averaging 1,000 miles per week (have been furloughed since April hence the mileage not going much higher) - Interior Condition: - Premium Sensitive Leather seats (expensive option) are in incredible condition considering the cars mileage, far better than ones you will find for sale with lower mileage - Aside from minor wear in places (all photographed), the interior is in fantastic condition for a 15 year old car with such an extensive and interesting history behind it - Interior Project Areas: - Infotainment display is beginning to suffer the usual Phaeton fault of only working sporadically (the system itself and all of the car’s functions work fine, it’s just the screen itself that is failing) (Project Notes: options are to replace the entire centre unit with a used item from eBay (circa. £300) or get the existing system repaired (circa. £270) by Cartronics GB) - The rear left quarter sun blind is missing (photographed) and because this is a rare part I have been waiting for a used example to be listed on eBay (some sellers have listed full sun blind sets for sale but have been unwilling to sell only the rear quarter blind required) - The previous owner used and did not replace the car’s full spare wheel (suffered a major puncture en-route somewhere in Europe) and I have been waiting for a high quality example to be listed on eBay (nothing high quality enough has been listed yet) - Exterior Project Areas: - Various bits of bodywork need refurbishing or replacing (all photographed) but nothing unusual or unexpected on a car of this age (including wheels) - The headlight washer covers in the front bumper can fall open under heavy braking as their mechanisms have become loose (they are still firmly attached to the car however) – I have had these looked at and the solution is to find and fit replacement headlight washer covers (I had planned to do this when carrying out other work on the front of the car as the front bumper has to be removed for fitment – I do not yet have the replacement parts) - Other Project Areas: - Tyre Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) has a fault which I have tried to resolve with a replacement TPMS Control Unit that did not solve the fault – as a result, the car comes with 2 working TPMS Control Units (1 installed, 1 spare) and the fault issue must lie somewhere within the VCDS electronic codes - Adaptive Cruise Control Radar (ACCR) is broken and has not yet been replaced (part of the planned work on the front of the car requiring removal of the front bumper) – the Phaeton Specialist who has worked on the car has a spare V10 ACCR to sell or fit if required (they are V10 specific parts) - Any other project areas would be at the discretion of the new owner and would be purely cosmetic or mechanical upgrades (of which I had plenty in mind and am happy to share upon request) *Car Spec Worth Noting (Standard & Options)* - Premium ‘sensitive’ soft leather (a very expensive option when new and still in fantastic condition - Massage, heated and cooled seats all round - TV receiver (is analogue however, so needs upgrading to digital to receive stations (quite an easy job if transferring parts over from an Audi A8 or younger VW Phaeton) - Electric sunroof (fully opens unlike the rarer ‘solar sunroof’ option) - Heated steering wheel incl. electric steering wheel adjustment - Anti-glare/dazzle film on rear window (to avoid being blinded by other drivers) - Automatic, LED headlights - Brand new premium Dunlop tyres all round - Keyless Entry and Start System (KESSY) - Original Volkswagen built-in Nokia phone (photographed) (requires SIM card to operate) - Unopened bottle (5 litre) of V10 TDI specific oil will be provided with car - Spare Door Lock Mechanism part, Hydraulic Boot Pump part, TPMS Control Unit part and brand new Floor Mats (x2 Front, x2 Rear) will be provided with car - All historic service documents, receipts etc will be provided with car - 2 original working keys with new batteries fitted provided with car - Original 2005 Rear Tail Light parts provided with car - updated 2009 Rear Tail Lights with full LEDS have been fitted *Asking Price* - £6,000 (ONO) (WAS £8,000, SAVE £2,000) (NB. If making a lower offer, the likes of delivery, full tank of diesel etc will need to be reconsidered) - Sold as Seen - Happy to deliver to new owner incl. full tank of diesel - This isn’t your typical V6 TDI Phaeton (of which there are many on the market), in fact the V10 TDI is rarer than the W12 model as it was only produced between 2004-2006 so cannot be compared to other models in the range available on the market - This isn’t your typical V10 TDI Phaeton either, the likes of which come up very occasionally on the market – those that come up are nearly always beat up SWB 5-Seater breakers with standard spec that have often been crashed/repaired and are in very poor condition - The amount of time and money spent mechanically refurbishing this incredible V10 TDI engine and running gear cannot be underestimated – this car is only a short project away from being exactly how the new owner wants it, whereas any others that require serious mechanical work will be long-term projects that will go on far longer than you think (it takes far longer and far more money than you plan for at the start, trust me) - I’ve swallowed the bulk of the cost for this car already, and it is only redundancy that is forcing me to sell it on to a new owner that respects the work done thus far, respects how incredible the Phaeton and this unique V10 TDI are, and has a passionate vision of taking this project through its final stages (whatever they may be) to end up with one of the most comfortable, enjoyable smile enducing big cars on the road today - Final point, but an important one – if you’ve never experienced the unrelenting surge of power and acceleration from this phenomenal engine (it can be a smooth as silk freight train or a smooth as silk cruise missile – nobody expects it to accelerate the way it does at the lights) then you’re in for one hell of a pleasant surprise! *For Sale by Jack Stanley*
