That's about the only purple car I'd drive

What's the blue car in the background with the roof scoop?

That the WRC Polo rally car in the background. We're never going to see the 4motion Golf over here, although I think it would fit right into the VW lineup, and wouldn't compete with any Audi offerings at all.

Looks like a race Lupo by the arangement of the headlights. I like the dual exhaust thing with the Golf don't know why but it's something that turns me on with cars .

Nope, the car behind it is the new Super 1600 JWRC Polo study car. VW is thinking of offering a car when the Super 1600 class changes over to JWRC in 2003.
And on to the Golf...
I really like it, that stupid looking trim strip is gone from the bumpers, the front looks agressive, but not overly so, and the wheels, pure car porn.

Agreed. This is too "boy racer." The Golf/GTI looks great as is. A more subtle suggestion of the car's extra power, similar to AMG's approach with Mercedes-Benz models, would be preferable.

It´s only a prototype (that´s at least what the window sticker says). Though VW is going to built such a car next year, there will be some changes. And I think that neat changing color is probably one of the things to change.

And in fine VWAG style, they have no press information of official pictures yet...

Hopefully we'll receive something in the mail with full specs, a press release and better photos. Our Essen Motor Show coverage should be up by tomorrow.
