Volkswagen Polo Harlequin
The Volkswagen Polo Mk3 is the third generation of the Volkswagen Polo supermini car and was produced from 1994 until late 1999 (some models in 2000). It was available in hatchback, sedan and wagon body styles. It shared the same platform and initially a similar design as the contemporary Seat Ibiza (hatchback) and Seat Córdoba (sedan and wagon) models.
The third generation Polo (known internally as the Typ 6N) was launched in September 1994, and was a completely new model/chassis from the old Polo, although early versions used the engines from the Mark 2. The Mark 3 was the first Polo to be made available as a five-door as well as three-door hatchback; these were built in 1994-1999.
In Europe, a special 'Harlekin' or 'Harlequin' model was released in 1995. The Polo Harlekin was an unusual edition featuring a multi-coloured body with each panel in a different colour: Flash red, Ginster yellow, Pistachio green and Chagall blue. It used the same engines as normal Polos, the colour of the panels was the only difference. Originally limited to 1.000, around 3.800 of this series were produced.
The car we sell
This Harlequin (also called Harlekin or sometimes even Benetton) is originally from Italy and very well preserved. It has covered a mere 121.000 km. The interior is impeccable, and there is no rust to be found on the bodywork whatsoever. It runs and drives perfectly !
Just a fun car with a high level of originality. You either love it or hate it, and I love it !
