    Very very impressive car but would be a better sleeper with some OEM wheels on

    Also to only cover 500 miles in that length of time just shows that it is never used - which IMO is a bit of a waste.

    The car has covered less that 500 miles in 5 years and hasn't been driven in the rain for approx 7 years.
    I hate people like that, cars for driving, if you want an ornament buy some china.

    Looks nice

    The engine conversion is quite common isnt it?

    I guy I used to know had the VR6 engine in his golf turbo'es and got bored with it so did a mid engine conversion to it instead.

    Another mate has just finished doing a R32 conversion on his Bettle that looks standard too lol

    This has been floatin around on the Dub forums for a while now.
    Its a beauty of a car but would be better on Haldex instead of Syncro running gear.

    And one bit that stands out, if you were about to buy a Gumbert Apollo (best part of £250k arent they?) would you tell everyone and then give out your phone number and address?????
    Maybe the guy bullshits a tiny bit

    Ah didnt read that bit.........

    When I said he did the R32 conversion he also did the full 4x4 bit too (Lost about half the depth of the boot lol) and yes its a new shape one.
