We here at GCFSB are fans of colorful rides. And we’ve certainly seen our fair share of Porsche PTS rides or BMW’s Individual paint work. Audi even comes to the pages occasionally with its Exclusive program, or Mercedes-Benz and its designo tones. But if you’re a VW fan? Well, until recently, you were pretty hard up. But in 2018 Volkswagen announced it would do fans a solid and offer its range-topping Golf R with their Color Spektrum Program which would give you the choice of not one, not two, but some 40 different shades.
Of course, there’s a catch. The Golf R is already pretty pricey at $40,000 with few options. Tack on the Spektrum option and you’re paying another $2,500….and…..waiting. Few of these cars were ordered, meaning that if you really want one you either need to pony up or be very lucky. But an ’18 in the fetching but oddly-named ’91 Blue’ came up for auction with a seemingly very low entry price. What’s the rub?

Yup, you guessed it. First off, it’s not local. And second off, it’s been crashed – hard enough to grant a salvage title. On a pretty new Golf R with a strong residual market, that must have meant substantial enough damage that the car could not be fixed easily. That value normally should lie around $33,000, and I’m not an insurance agent or a math wizz, but figuring around 75% value for repairs is the ‘total’ threshold, that means this R suffered around $25,000 retail worth of repairs.
Is it a cool color? Yes. Is the listing a bit lazy? Yes. Would I pass? Unless you’re looking for a bright-toned track rat, you better believe it.
Hard to say the crash caused all the crap seen in the interior shots. Not a floormat to be seen. Generally I wouldn’t consider buying a car that wasn’t cared for on the inside as that is often harder to bring back than mechanical ir bidy damage.
You messed up on the ebay link… it just loads this page in another page.
The nose job pales in comparison to the black with a candy color paint.
Judging from the crash AND the inside condition, that was a rough 25,000 miles.
@nbpace – thanks, corrected.
A “very small accident” that took out the bumper, fogs, headlights, hood and fenders…? OK.
A car does not get written off due to “a small accident”. Also, that interior looks like it has seen some hard use. What a neat color! I had not idea you could choose from those extra colors. Very cool!
Hmm, that’s not that low a starting price. You can buy a new 2019 off the VW lot for 42k CDN. OK, so you don’t get the wacky blue paint, but it’s new! Canada won the lottery big time on Golf R pricing.
@Brady – apparently! ’19s near me are “discounted” to 40K: https://www.balisevolkswagenri.com/inventory/new-2019-volkswagen-golf-r-all-wheel-drive-hatchback-wvwwa7au9kw148388
