MK1 GTI Rivage Prices

Post

Back to the top
Hi All,

I was watching an online auction on Car & Classic last night and a Rivage 'allegedly' sold for 27,250, see here -

1991 Volkswagen Golf GTI Rivage For Sale By Auction | Car and Classic

Does anyone else have any thoughts / expectations of what Rivage's go for at the moment price wise as that seems a lot to me?

Anyone know the car at all as it has a MK1 Owners Club Key Fob in one of the pictures?

Any info would be appreciated as I have a friend who has a Rivage in amazing condition and he is umming and arring about selling it so it would be nice to get an idea on current values and expectations.

Cheers

Looks nice and restored to within an inch of it's life but 27,000+opens up a massive range of other desirable cars…

1983 Mars Red 1.8 Golf GTI
1987 Alpine White 1.8 Clipper Cabriolet

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

Yeah, I saw it at Silverstone Auctions back in 2019. It sold for 10,125 with fees.

It looks like a pumped up price for some reason, but would be interested to know if anyone knows this car or the owner to explain?

I thought tyres over 10 years old was an MOT fail?

This car has a tyre from the 37 week in 2008 and another from week 1 2010…. And that's the only 2 tyres I can see well enough

But I guess if you have that much to spend on a Mk1 you would bin the old tyres and fit new as they are the only thing in contact with the ground  O_o

Ref tyres, considering the attention to detail in restoring, it feels a bit cheap to not change the rubber for a more premium brand and new boots full stop.

In regards to the 10yr limit, I think that only applies to HGV and Class 4 vehicles.

only needs 2 bidders with egos as big as their wallets and hey presto….
You can't really base values on one single spike in the market but then what do I know I only buy - I never sell!!
