Find of the Day: MK2 GTI VRT Syncro

No need for foreplay on this one, so let’s just cut to the chase.  This GTI has got to be insane.

With a turbocharged VR6 under the hood with 25 pounds of boost, and with a rear subframe fabricated to accept a syncro all-wheel-drive system, we can only imagine what the driving experience will be like.  The installation looks extremely clean, and the car seems to be in good shape, but it is important to note that the next owner will need to do some finishing.  While some of that finishing is relatively simple like some trim work and emblems, the syncro swap needs to be completed which may prove difficult.
