Dolphin Grey Metallic
This car was advertised by Newera on our website and Autotrader on behalf of one of a previous customer, who was moving abroad for work. This is a special service offered only to owners of high quality cars sourced from ourselves.
Standard equipment includes: Tiptronic transmission, Power Steering, Power Windows, Climate Control A/C, Remote Controlled Door Mirrors with retract mode, Alloy wheels. Mechanically and cosmetically, this car is in completely standard condition. Additional extras also include fitted mats, FTO stainless steel alloy sill plates (backlit FTO logo) and an FTO rear reflector, between the lenses.
The car when sourced in Japan was of auction grade 4. When sourced by ourselves 2 years ago, it had 17,500 genuine miles so we know the mileage on it now is absolutely genuine. This car was sourced to order for a customer who specifically wanted a mint, low mileage non smoker's car from new. Shortly after importing, he invested in a complete black leather with black piping retrim (Incl. Door card inserts, door handles and centre storage bin's lid), a new stereo - Blaupunkt Woodstock DAB/mp3/cd player with 6 speaker system. Also fitted is an insurance approved tracker and remote entry Cat 1 alarm.
Front brakes are groved Black Diamond items - for improved performance. These extras have cost approximately £2,300 over and above the original cost of the car.
Since importing, this FTO's been carefully looked after and has continued to be owned by non smokers since new.
Condition of this example is still much like when it was supplied by ourselves. There is only some peeling of paint on one of the wheels - which would cost around £35 to repair at any decent garage, or less if DIY.
2 years on since this example was imported and supplied by ourselves, not only are 1997 FTO's no longer able to be imported, due to E-SVA and no model report currently available - but we also find that high quality examples like this are now virtually impossible to find in Japan.
This car was sold through Newera's help - to a delighted new lady owner for £8,150.
