      With a VW badge? Next year VW will announce the VR8 MKVII R52, it'll be priced right to **** with Porsche's offerings, but then some Matt-Damon-In-Good-Will-Hunting janitor named Hans will remember the immense success the phaeton experienced in the US and VW will realize no one wants premium $$ VWs here outside of SUVs (even though I and other enthusiasts think it'd be sweet to have them), or like so many of their teasers/concepts will cancel it shortly after testing the waters.

      In related news, when Audi bought Ducati they started working on a T-5 all-wheel drive Avant motorcycle.

      Ok so they have the VR8 just for no reason other than the only practical use of the Veyron?

      The Veyron has a W16, not a VR8. VW doesn't even make a VR8. What is this thread about?

      I think maybe he means W8?

      They need to make a large displacement 120 degree V6.

      W8 for another go around. Perhaps they learned something from the Veyron and could fix some of its issue ?!
      I'd like to see the I5 2.5T used in more application .

      I'm with you. Although, they should go radial and skip the turbocharging and use dohc heads to keep it simple.

      they keep making the vr6 larger in displacement (2.8 - now what 3.6?), and the vr8 is actually a patented design owned by VW.

      I'm hoping they put it in something eventually, rear wheel drive would be cool. I meant a VR8 in a Porsche rather. I'm wondering why they are sitting on it? The fact that it would be a single head means that it could be put in a compact design...

      Has anything in the R and D used the VR8?

      http://ls1tech.com/forums/advanced-e...-w8-vs-v8.html

      "The first generation Porsche Cayenne base model is powered by a 3.2-liter VR6 engine producing 250 hp (190 kW); modifications in the exhaust manifold allow power to peak at 6700 rpm. This is the same 3.2-liter motor found on a Volkswagen Touareg and Volkswagen R32."


      if you read the progression of things it only makes sense that it would come about in something, if even as a prototype.

      There will be no more VR motors. VW killed the VR6, and the 5cylinder. That means they'll focus on the 2.0t, TDi, and they announced the return of the 1.8t. VW doesn't care about the "enthusiast", the word turbo on a brochure will insinuate "performance racekor" to just about any John Doe

      And for your information Einstein, VR6 stands for Veloci-Raptor 6, who was the Raptor in Jurassic Park that learned how to open doors. Named in his honor
