We all know how the VR6 is a 15 degree V, as opposed to the common 90 degree design. That setup, makes the VR6 more compact and allowed it to be fitted in compact chassis like the Corrado, Mk.3, Mk.4, B3 and B4. Now my question is, if the narrow angle V is such a neat concept, has anyone else besides VW utilized it? Are there any narrow angle V equipped cars on the market right now?
