    Thread: VW Golf MK2 AWD 900HP 8,89s @ 266kmh 16Vampir

      right. 4-motion was VW's trademark name, and Quattro was the Audi trademark name, for AWD.

      just like the Audi TT which is called Quattro but in reality it is transverse Haldex based.

      4motion is a registered trademark of Volkswagen AG, used exclusively on Volkswagen-branded automobiles which utilise four-wheel drive (4WD) systems. Volkswagen has previously used the term "Syncro" for its 4WD models.

      Of the Volkswagen Group's other marques, the "quattro" nomenclature is used for 4WD Audi cars. Sister companies Škoda simply uses the nomenclature "4x4" after the model name, whereas SEAT merely uses "4".

      None of the above trademarks are specific to any particular 4WD system or technology being employed.

      Too bad VW stopped building cars in 1992...they might have been on to something.

      I know this is an old post but I've always wanted to know why the choice was to use a 16v rather than the later 20v engine?

      I wish I turbo'd a 16v now rather than buying a 20v

      Most likely just personal preference. 20v's make plenty of power, so don't worry about that.

      Would LOVE to see the laundry list (and cost) of parts that makes this magic possible. Out of a 1.8... just amazing. I would be happier than a kid @ Christmas if my CC 2.0 made half that power (and actually survives for more than a few hours!)

      Anyone have a link to the build list I've likely overlooked? TIA
