I hate "builds" like this. Stuff like that is so out of reach and unreasonable for the average Golf/Rabbit owner.

While I do agree that is it rather out of reach.. I would love to have those seats and sound system..

This was in euro tuner last March I think. Still don't see the point of throwing all that money into the 2.5 and awd when you can get a 3.2 with awd and make way more power.

I used to have a rabbit just like this in high school. Except it was an 84, and diesel, and had almost 300k miles on it. Oh and no power steering. Also none of the cool mods you see on this one. But it was white, just like this one

What if money is not a problem and you want to do something new?

We wanted to be different by doing such a project. Take an R32 and put it force induction is old news for the community.

The main purpose of this project is to bring something new for the 2.5L owners such as different tuning options from a simple 300whp bolt on kit up to a wild setup like this one.

We know most of the 2.5L owners may not go as wild as we did but who doesn't enjoy to see someone who goes the extra mile to provide an original all show, all go project car!

I view it as a halo project to exhibit Unitronic's abilities to make a one off extreme build. Very cool sans sound system - not a fan of curbside DJ stunners. Leave it to xB genre and the Alpine audio guys

honestly, i love everything about this car aside from the front bumper. it's much too busy. shaved hood with an r32 front, GTI + votex, or Thunderbunny would have looked much cleaner imho.
is this a shoppe car, or customer's car?

Polo gti 3.6 vr swap awd swap 6mt swap twin turbo big breaks....... Why don't millionaires do these things? Instead they buy -insert Italian super car-

I guess that's a good point something different. I still don't like the front end. Lol
