The 8 valve GTI made round 110 hp and weighed in at a just 2,000 lbs (give or take a golden retriever)...

It all started with a phone call. Wait—back up. It started with a web search for interlagos plaid. Though...

    European versions of eBay are just so much more fun than ours, aren't they?  Especially when you've got an importation guy willing to make your dream a reality, so long as that dream is at least 25 years old.  Luckily today's find fits that mold perfectly, even coming with a set of yet to be...

    Despite not being the most obvious choice for drag racing, many Volkswagen owners have worked tirelessly to make their cars cover the 1320ft sprint as quickly as possible.  We see them each year at events like Waterfest; small economy cars launching down the racetrack at impossible speeds, never...

    There are trends that circulate amongst "the scene" that tend to serve as low hanging fruit for critics. Purposely rusty panels or wicker seats are some that come to mind. Fortunately, what you see here is not from the show scene... unless that show is an art show. What you see here is a...

    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...

    Waterfest 2014 may have already come and gone, but it is still front and center in our minds. With nearly 1700 shutter actuations, we realize that it can be a bit overwhelming to go through all of our galleries.

    Worthersee 2014 was one for the recordbooks.  Coming in at roughly six times larger than Waterfest, there was plenty to see and do around the lakeside town of Reifnitz during the roughly two week invasion of cars manufactured by the Volkswagen Group.  To streamline things a bit, we have gone...
