**SOLD** 1997 Vauxhall Tigra **VERY LOW MILEAGE**


**SOLD** 1997 Vauxhall Tigra **VERY LOW MILEAGE**

The vendor has kindly advised the following:

This Vauxhall Tigra was bought new on 04/08/1997 by a Mr Michael Lowe
from the local Vauxhall dealer Pentagon Vauxhall in Ashbourne, around the
same time Mr Lowe also treated himself to his dream car a TR7 V8.

The Tigra was used as a second car, it was returned to Pentagon for servicing on
 31/07/1998 at 734 miles and again almost a year later on 2/06/1999 still
with only 937 miles.

Shortly after that Mr Lowe was unfortunately involved in a serious accident
driving his beloved TR7, it took him years to recover from his injuries and he
never drove a car again !

The Tigra was shut away in his garage with less than 1000 miles on the clock.

Upon his passing, the car was discovered late 2015 by the executors of his will
still parked in the garage where it had lain since late 1999, the car was offered
to the local garage who decided to buy it and re-commission it.

They fitted 5 new tyres due to the age of the originals and also the 4 fitted to
the car had flat spotted, the car was then submitted for its first ever MOT
showing just 1103 miles which it passed with no advisories.

Apparently the car was never driven in the wet and the underside is virtually as
new and still covered in delivery wax. The car runs and drives like a brand new
Tigra. The interior is as new. Comes complete with V5 and all handbooks and service book. A timing belt kit was fitted in 2016.

This must be unique with this mileage; MK1 Tigras are a rare sight on the roads
now so surely well worth stashing away as a future investment or could be put
into use and driven as a great retro daily driver!!

On-site now for viewing.
