Hi guys I have been offered a Blue 220 Turbo GTI three door that's been off the road stored outside for several years.

All I know is its Blue a genuine Turbo - apparently Turbos were special order only?
With original bill of sale, needs bodywork, sills and wheel arches have blisters.

I havent seen it but the guy wants £500 - I think thats too steep, he knows its rare, but have no idea of value or what its worth once done??
He approached me as he works at the garage I had by coupe MOT'd last week.

What are your thoughts?

rip his arm off

Done to my standard would see a £2500-3000 car suitable for a show stand.

Starting prices for 3 doors at the moment is £1k and by the sounds of it recommissioning shouldn't be too much of a battle.

Biggest problem with R8's is rot, so I'd be getting pics and looking for that first to make sure it's not beyond economical repair, rare car or otherwise. :)

A GTi would have to be Caribbean (unless Quicksilver can be considered to be a very pale blue)

I dont know as I dont have anywhere to work on it at the meoment so havent been to see it.
He reckons the engine had extensive work before he took it off the road.

He mentioned it to me as I had the coupe in for MOT.
When I am next in the area I aim to try and get a look at it
