    Thread: Video: VW Does its Best Gymkhana Impression with Tanner Foust and about 500 GoPro Cameras

    1. 06-02-2014 01:01 PM #1
      Now that the seventh-generation GTI has officially hit the streets in America, and with Volkswagen offering a free GoPro with every purchase or lease until June 30th, it only makes sense that they toss the keys of one such GTI to Top Gear USA host and Global Rallycross Driver Tanner Foust.



      Throughout the 5 minute video (and additional 17 minutes of alternate angles), Tanner puts the car and GoPro's suction mounts through their paces with an abundance of burnouts, and handbrake slides (for the ladies).
      So Mk7 GTI owners, how will you be using your free GoPro?

      I cant believe he did all that with the DSG. I would of bet $100 that he would of been in the 6 speed. I'm shocked.

      Excited that they changed the GoPro offer from the first 500 to all purchases made in June

      Even though it's a bit of a cheesy rip-off, going Gymkhana-style with Tanner at the helm of a GTI is a pretty solid marteking approach.
