Jensen’s Volkswagen Lupo and KTM Duke: Fulfilling a Lifelong Dream

For Jensen, the lockdown presented an unexpected opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream: owning a rare and cherished model, the Volkswagen Lupo Sport. As soon as he saw the Lupo Sport up for sale, he couldn’t resist the chance to make it his own. Initially, his plan was simple, intending to add some wheels and coilovers for a bit of personalization. However, fate had other plans, and Jensen soon found himself diving headfirst into an exhilarating journey of modifications and upgrades.

From Stock to Showstopper

The Lupo Sport, a rare gem in its own right, quickly became Jensen’s canvas for creativity. What started as a modest vision of new wheels and coilovers evolved into a full-fledged transformation. Jensen couldn’t resist the allure of taking the car to new heights, and before he knew it, he had fitted it with an awe-inspiring air ride suspension system, stylish bucket seats for a race-inspired cockpit, and a custom exhaust that adds a thrilling soundtrack to every drive.

A Daily Driver with a Personal Touch

Despite the extensive modifications, Jensen’s Lupo Sport remains his trusted daily driver. Its transformation has been carefully curated to ensure both practicality and exhilaration on his daily commutes. Jensen’s passion for the car is evident in every detail, and he finds joy in knowing that each drive is an opportunity to showcase the unique personality he has crafted for his Lupo.

The KTM Duke: A Dash of Fun and Freedom

As the weather turned inviting, Jensen couldn’t resist adding a bit of two-wheeled excitement to his life. He embraced the spirit of adventure with his KTM Duke, using it as a fun-filled companion for exploring scenic routes and unleashing the thrill of riding on winding roads. The Duke serves as a delightful addition to Jensen’s automotive repertoire, providing a sense of freedom and exhilaration on the open road.

Discovering Midnight Lancs: A Community that Feels Like Family

Jensen’s journey with Midnight Lancs began in July 2020, at a time when he didn’t know many people in the car scene. However, fate had another connection in store for him. Meeting Jack Whitfield, one of the club’s other administrators, through work, proved to be a serendipitous encounter. Jensen soon found himself immersed in the warm embrace of the Midnight Lancs community. From that moment on, he began meeting more like-minded individuals who shared his passion for cars, and he quickly felt a sense of belonging in the group.

A Welcoming Home for Enthusiasts

Midnight Lancs became much more than just a car club to Jensen; it became a home for enthusiasts where he could share his automotive journey with friends who truly understood his love for cars. The welcoming atmosphere and camaraderie of the group made Jensen feel like he had found a second family, where his passion was not only accepted but celebrated.


Jensen’s journey with his beloved Volkswagen Lupo Sport and thrilling KTM Duke is a testament to the power of pursuing one’s dreams. What began as a long-held aspiration during lockdown quickly blossomed into a realization of his automotive visions. With the Lupo Sport as his daily showstopper and the KTM Duke as his adventurous sidekick, Jensen’s life is now filled with exhilaration, freedom, and the warm embrace of the Midnight Lancs family. His passion for cars has become more than just a hobby; it’s a way of life, and he looks forward to every moment of it with excitement and joy.
