I think we reached the bottom of the barrel..


There doesn't look to be anything "bottom of the barrell" there, unless you just don't like/respect VAG products. Because, that thing looks hot like fat-people secs http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

The Sirocco is a beautiful car. The higher power for this model was needed to complement the looks and guess what? VW simply did. The model was supposed to be called R20T but now it's just R. Should give Volvo something to think about. I meant Volvo has reached the bottom..

I agree, it's stunning. But, I've always been a huge fan of hatchbacks, especially low, wide ones. I will be looking into this as a replacement for my R, finances permitting.

The new GTI is also a little meaner looking than the MKV of 2006. Liking what VW is doing!

Really? I think it's fine and way better looking than the C30's rear IMO.

Overall I think VW's R looks sharp. But a 6.3sec 0-62mph is too slow for me


Yet another cool little car that won't come stateside

Lame VW always does that they produce a cool looking car with a weak engine.. Why don't they put out a 400HP Golf now that would rock
They did make that 600HP W12 GTI but never into production.. sadly.

Well, sure, we'd all like to see a factory 400hp VW, but then, that's not VW's game, now is it


It's our game to take a competent VW, and make it a shocker!! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

HPA can help you get plenty of HP out of a VW, but to do it from the factory would be $$, and VW is likely gun-shy to offer a car that costs over $40g, for example, after the dearth of Phaeton sales.
