2000 VW Advanced Activity Concept

This was the VW concept truck introduced at the 2000 NAIAS. Powered by a twin turbocharged 313hp V-10 Diesel putting out a massive 555 pound-feet of torque @ 2000rpm. Other enhancements  include height-adjustable suspension, permanent 4WD, 6-sp automatic with manual tiptronic feature. Is this a VW that could send the Ram into hiding, the Triton back into the sea and the Yukon back up north?

VWís 1989/90 Golf Limited proves looks can be deceiving.

From what I have found out, The VW Golf Limited was created in 89/90 by VW Motorsports. It was powered by a 210hp 1.8L 16V G-60 supercharged motor. Power was put to the ground through a AWD synchro system. Itís outward appearance did not betray itís true intentions, it seemed a potent Q-ship.

I had the opportunity to ride in this car a couple of years back. To my knowledge it is the only example in the US and was imported by a company in Santa Cruz, CA. With 4 large adults in the car it was still incredibly fast and agile. With full leather interior, all the amenities and power and traction to top it off, it was a car set apart from the rest. With the body of a sheep, the rest just didnít know it. The best comparison I can think of today is the modern Audi S4. Click on the following pictures for more detail.
