2000 Citroen Saxo 1.6 16v VTS

  • Description

    This is an exceptionally rare, 1 OWNER Citroen Saxo VTS, with low mileage at just 88,000 miles and with Full Service History, try and find another!!

    First registered by Roy H G Tolley Ltd, Citroen main dealers in Colchester on 01/03/2000, it remained a local car all it's life, by it's 1 mature non-smoking lady owner. Mrs Reeves has clearly cherished this car from the moment she picked it up from the showroom. It remains in completely original and unmolested condition.

    It's clearly never been driven hard or thrashed, never been in the hands of a boy racer, so no silly aftermarket exhausts, induction cone filters or holes in the rear parcel shelf, and not a fluffy dice in site!! Everything on this VTS is completely standard, even down to the original cd player!

    Presented in gleaming 'Wicked Red', the paintwork has got a lovely deep glossy sheen and really is in superb, original condition. All paintwork looks original, and the original supplying Citroen dealer number plates fitted front and rear, would again suggest this VTS has never seen the wrong side of a hedge! Being a 16 year old saxo, it is of course not a museum piece, so does have the odd tiny age related mark here and there, but overall superb for it's age and polished up nicely as can be seen in the pictures.

    Having covered just 88,000 genuine miles from new, it has clearly wanted for nothing, Full Service History, with a total of 14 service stamps in the service book. The last service being carried out at the Citroen main dealer on 02/03/16 at 88,425 miles. It is fitted with premium quality tyres to the original 15" factory fitted Speedlines, matching Uniroyal tyres on the front, and matching Goodyear Eagle F1's on the rear.

    Upon road test, this pocket rocket really does drive sweetly, the 1.6 16v engine is lively and responsive, nice smooth power delivery through the rev range, the gear box is precise and still feels nice and 'tight'. The steering is razor sharp and the brakes feel solid and effective. As soon as you drive this car, it's apparent how well it's been looked after!

    The interior is again, in superb order, never smoked in, it remains completely original, still fitted with the original tailored Citroen 'Saxo' embossed floor mats, the carpet remains as new. All electrics / controls work exactly as they should.

    It comes supplied with 2 x keys / remote fob, full literature pack containing all original booklets along with the Full Service History, mot until March 2017. 

    It is becoming increasingly rare to see an unmolested Saxo VTS, particularly one with low mileage, and one that has had 1 mature lady owner from new. Has to be a future classic with such low numbers, continuing to dwindle. This could be the next '205 GTi' and a wise investment for the future! Try and find another!
