<p>This 2004 Volkswagen R32 was acquired by the seller over 13 years ago and is one of 612 examples finished in Reflex Silver over black leather with cloth inserts. Showing just over 37k miles, the car is powered by a 3.2L VR6 paired with a 6-speed manual transaxle and a Haldex all-wheel-drive system. Modifications include a European-spec front bumper, Bilstein PSS9 coilovers, Peloquin front and rear limited-slip differentials, an ECS tuning big brake kit, 18″ Volk Racing RE-30 wheels, Alpine stereo system, and more as detailed below. Maintenance carried out in May 2019 is said to have included new tires, a fluid service, and general inspection. This MK4 R32 is now offered with factory books and manuals, service records from the seller’s ownership, the window sticker, two keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Connecticut title in the seller’s name.</p>
