Agreed - the Lupo GTI wasn't just a new engine with a fancy trim level or a body kit (like a VTR/VTS/TYPE-R etc) it was special. I really hope the Up GT follows suit.Heartagram said:Lupo GTI is an excellent car. But I think one edge that the Lupo GTI had was that it was totally different to a standard Lupo. The panels were different (aluminum doors, wings and bonnet), rear arches were round, rear bumper was different, centre exhaust, xenons, different interior trimmings. With a 6 speed and leathers it was a very well spec'd car.
Unless the Up GT is as bispoke to the standard Up it won't really be worth the money. The Lupo GTI was expensive but it was a special car. I mean the Polo GTI of the same era just had different bumper grilles and wheels!
