VERY few people will know how rare this car is.

I'll fill them in a little bit.

This car is the ONLY RHD Polo G40 Genesis.

"In 1992 VW released a limited number of special edition Polos, with special trim and a G40 engine and suspension. The "Genesis" G40 was made to special order only. A single right hand drive example found its way to the UK. This one-off model was a competition prize when the VW-sponsored Genesis tour reached its UK leg."

Everything's only worth what someone's willing to pay for it.

The VW museum were willing to pay £100k for a new beetle cabby (Plus a standard beetle cabby) just because it was given away by Paul McCartney.

"A single right hand drive example found its way to the UK"

"This one-off model was a competition prize when the VW-sponsored Genesis tour reached its UK leg."

It also says this though, so i'm guessing yeah it is the only one in the world.

Yep that confused me because it makes it seem that they made one right hand model for the U.K. prize.
