A 144,000-mile REAL EURO-SPEC BEAUTY APPEARS!
Here it is, your chance to own one of the rarest & most sought after Euro-Spec VWs around!
This model & body style (B4) came with a 5-speed manual transmission and the legendary VR6 2.8, 172 HP engine, the best motor ever produced by VW. This drivetrain has proven to be one of the most efficient and reliable VW has ever made, with its’ impressive in-line VR6.
All 1996-97 Passat VR6 were built in Germany. A real Euro Spec German (see picture), as most of the newer VWs are built in South America and Mexico.
This beauty was originally purchased in 1996 in New Jersey by an elderly lady. After a couple years she moved to CA, where the vehicle was transferred to her children. The previous owner was an elderly gentleman who loved his cars and always maintained them with the best care. He purchased it from her children and moved it to AZ, where it was driven mostly on the Interstate. The car is now in Lake Havasu City, AZ, enjoying the sunny skies and smooth roads. The Carfax Report will show an odometer warning, but if you read the service entries listed, you’ll see that it happened many years back in CA because of a typographical error. Clean and clear title.

I have the original owner’s manual as well as the original key and one spare. The original spare tire is intact and virtually unused. The CD player has been upgraded by the previous owner and now includes an AUX input and remote. The car runs amazingly well, the engine purrs like a champ. This car is in excellent condition and receives regular maintenance and love. The black leather interior is in great shape, with the usual wear and tear on the driver’s seat and interior door panel.New tires. This Passat is a beauty inside and out and everything is operational except the Cruise Control .
The silver exterior is equally stunning, with no rust. A handful of minor scratches are the only blemishes to the paint.All door handles and exterior trim work properly. The engine bay is clean (although not detailed with a steam-cleaner) and ready for your inspection. Now is your chance to own one of these Euro-Spec VW beauties (172 HP) in incredible condition! Clear title!
