Rip out the backseat of a GTi "R", put in a firewall, get some earplugs and drop a W12 behind the front seats ala Renault!

This is the rumored test-mule for the VR8 motor that was in a magazine spy photo back in 1999 or 2000...though some on the 'Net think it's just a TDI Touring Car.

From MotorWeek:
"Holy smokes! Caught in the cross hairs this week is this Volkswagen Jetta, rumored to be sporting VW's new VR8 under its hood. The normally aspirated 8 cylinder could displace either 3.7 or 4.2 liters, and produce 270 and 300 horsepower, respectively. There's also a good chance these engines will be coupled to VW's 4-motion all wheel drive system and a choice of tiptronic or 6-speed manual transmissions. This M-3 killer could hit the pavement and race tracks as early as spring of 2000."

Yes my friend, that is a photochop of a W12 at about 80% its actual size. Notice the injector lines are mirror images as they leave the fuel distributor among many, many other problems.

Re: Will it fit? (amead)

haven't you noticed that the engine is not aligned in the car. draw a line from the hood's blocking hole to the wiper rod and you can see that

The A! Avantgarde A3 V8 never worked, hence no performance figures.

Re: Will it fit? (GTi TDi)

Yeah I love how the w12 pic has only 8 fuel lines that are identical... never the less it made me look twice and start to feel a little tingle

BTW has anyone here priced a crate w8 motor, and are the W8 vehicles all 4-motion or what do they have for a drivetrain...
