Knight of the 3rd Pedal
Those pictures are of the European R. The article says the US ones will be manual exclusive it says nothing about the European R being manual exclusive. That car is pure sex! Ima start saving my pennies! lolyou know i just noticed something. the article says it will be only manual, but in the pictures it shows an auto shifter, and only two pedals. what gives? maybe they got their info wrong.
Prob has to do with laws and costs too. The more power a car has, the more it costs to import iirc.for real, vw should make a turbo'd vr6 for like a special R edition. but i guess the loss in weight will make it more nimble.
Well you know how we have TSI's here? Well in Europe, those are super and turbo. Here, they're just the same as the other 2.0T direct injected engines in all the GTI's and so forth...i wonder if they could do a twin turbo set up on the vr6 using a k03 and a k04. werent some r32s supercharged and turboed?
