Project R GT

Jetta As our regular know very well, focuses primarily on “grassroots” or motorports events, products and Thus, it may surprise many of you to see an on the new Jetta and Passat concept that Volkswagen rolled out at 2005. When I first across these two stunning on the Volkswagen stand at SEMA, I was awestruck.

The Jetta, in particular, as if it is a World Challenge GT car with sponsor stickers and the addition of bucket seats. The car sits on 19” Avus alloy while resting tightly on a KW 3-way coil-over racing Even at rest, the Jetta Passat, though to a lesser give the impression of incredible

As many cars suggest but later fall lacking, it was to see the engine bay and read about VW’s California design has accomplished in preparing this car for the road. To begin with, worked in close consort HPA Motorsports in specifying the powertrain propels the car at near-terminal velocities. HPA removed the 2.5L 150hp motor from the 2005 and replaced it with their own twin-intercooled, 550-horsepower variant of 3.2-liter, 240-horsepower six-cylinder V6 powers the R32.

As mentioned the wheels are striking nineteen Avus alloys covered low profile Michelin high tires. The wheels are a center lug allowing a quick change to inch wheels, should the wish to take the car to the track no even to find the floor as an AP Racing air jack system is fitted.

So, from the outside, quite a attractive car. As expected, the doesn’t disappoint either, four Alcantara-clad racing seats for driver and passenger with four-point Schroth harnesses. A fully integral cage and Stack racing help add to the Jetta’s racecar for the credentials. This car is definitely for a few hot laps it even has a racing cell installed in lieu of the fuel tank!
