      I'd say a GLI with a TDI motor and thunderbunny kit

      seems like it... probably to commemorate their running in the 24 hrs at nordschleife.

      and GLI/GTI brakes
      and GLI/GTI suspension
      and Interlagos interior

      I see a lot more than just a body kit and stickers (though the kit is nice as well).

      Agree. Everyone complains we never get anything cool here, then when we do... they complain about it.

      Great idea VW. Thanks!

      I love the idea...I already have one TDI transplanted GLI, so this could fit right in. Are these going for suggested retail or some crazy markup?

      Oh, it is a good idea, and I appreciate VW bringing us some cool stuff, but if they had read the pages and pages of input on the Tex about this concept they would have seen we wanted the 170hp version most of all.

      Even with the 140hp version, I may shop it when it arrives. I want a Golf R, but may need a 4-door. I'd look at this over a regular TDI for sure.

      vw brought one of these and a mk6 tdi golf out to the east coast r32 track day. The TDI's weren't doing to bad in a field full of r32's. I wouldn't be too disappointed about only getting the 140 hp version, 236 torque works quite well and the car looks great. I'll have to look to see if I took any interior pics.

      Cool car, but that front bumper is hideous. There's more plastic mesh than actual front end.\

      Seems like a Jetta "GTD" kind of...

      but.. I still like the one they showed at LA two years ago that never appeared I think it was called TDI Sport:

      It was a GLI with the TDI motor and externally just looked like a sleeper Jetta.

      I think it looks cool, but really wish VW could have seen to fit the 170hp version of the engine as opposed to the 140hp version.

      Ditto... I would have a hard time *not* buying this if VW had decided on the 170HP TDI engine instead. Talk about having your cake and eating it too!

      I agree, if they brought over the R8 brakes & the 170 bhp version, it would've been an 'even more' special edition.... but even as it sits, it's a nice little piece - and it could easily be modified to similar TDI cupcar specs.

    26. 08-19-2011 02:38 PM #26
      I believe this car and other models should have at least the 170HP engine just for the extra grunt and power for the top end. Hopefully VW will see fit to at least add the 170 hp to the range even as an extra cost item.

      Recently drove a Ford Mondeo in UK with 170hp and the difference between 140 hp and 170 hp is like night and day//

      Any one heard snippets re the 170hp making an appearance in N. America

      Not going to happen... Not worth the additional cost to VW to pass inspections for a motor very few people would want

      looks like a very cool car, could see this one being my next daily driver. Would love to see more as well...

      agreed they should put the motor that they used in the TDI cup cars... 170 hp and like 223lbs. if i'm not mistaking.

      Also they should keep the Audi R8 breaking system on it to!!!
      it would be SICK!!!!!!

      Looks really nice. Haven't driven the Jetta TDI yet so I can't comment on lack of engine mods/power in this car. Seems like it could be a pretty good deal anyway.

      The TDI cup cars have 170hp and 300 ft.lbs
      The 140hp cars have 236 ft.lbs.
      There's so much aftermarket tuning available for TDI's that I don't think the fact they have 140 hp stock should be a breaking point for anyone.
