Documentation

Some cars are ordinary, some cars are interesting, and some cars are exceptional. This Treser Polo GT is one of those exceptional cars. Walter Treser is firmly linked to the history of this car. In his youth, this man was head of research at Pirelli. Since 1976 he has led the development of special vehicles at Audi. He was behind the development of the Audi 100 Quattro and it was he who gave the car its name. Since 1980 he has led the rally program in the Audi Sport division. Later he founded his own company Walter Treser GmbH, in which several remarkable cars were born, which are still not only interesting, but also relatively appreciated. Most are built on the basis of Audi, only one was based on a VW car. The only car was the Treser Polo GT, built on the basis of the VW Polo, for which you paid DM 18,500 in the basic version in 1993. Walter Treser used a straight 3F engine with two possible power variants, 55 or 75 hp. The conversion of the basic version of Treser itself then cost another 16,000 DM. A total of 290 were produced between 1991 and 1993, of which only ten came directly from Walter Treser's workshop in Germany. These cars are a real rarity, also because not all of them have survived to this day. It is estimated that there are only six left from around the world. Cars made in Germany are signed on the boot lid by Karin Treser and this signature is provided with a transparent sticker. Interestingly, Walter Treser had such a reputation that the Treser Polo was even sold through an official Volkswagen dealer network with a two-year manufacturer's warranty. The bodywork is interesting because it has a removable roof panel, which creates a targa or it is possible to remove the entire rest of the roof from the B-pillars, creating an impressive convertible. Both removed body parts can then be folded into the luggage compartment, which has been adapted for this. The car in the pictures is one of the few cars that has been preserved in a completely original and undamaged condition, practically in the condition of a new car. He has only driven seventeen thousand kilometers on the tachometer and has spent his entire life in Walter Treser's family. The car also has its complete history and data from the technical inspection showing how many kilometers there have been with the car in which period. To get a good impression of the car, we advise you to come to one of the viewing days.
