We also have a loosely translated version of the German press releaes below, but what we do know is this:

- VW claims a top speed of 202 mph
- 6.0l W12 12-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine mounted in the back seat of the GTI
- 650hp and 553 lb-ft. of torque (!)
- with the flared fenders the car sits over 6 feet wide and only 4.6 feet tall
- 19" wheels with 295 rear rubber and 235 front rubber
- the fenders are flared 3.15" at the rear


Full story

Story at VW.de (German text)

Me want!!!

Was this the car that they revealed at the VW-area in Reifnitz?

When i was walking there, i saw a car under a white sheet. We thought that it was a Iroc or an other VW "concept"...

But THIS

Lets build this shit! But only 10 or 20 off them so it would be really exclusively!

This was probably the one. VW also officially introduced their "Volkswagen Individual" line there.
