I'm not sure if I like this yet. I liked the drawings better. I do like the idea a lot, though, especially this part:
"RWD? Mid-engine? In a Volkswagen? Yes folks, Dr. Pischetsrieder is obviously making his past history with BMW felt at VWAG and potentially setting the stage for an interesting future. The Concept R is a Golf V-sized two-seater powered by a 265hp 3.2l VR6 with power routed through a six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission to the *REAR* wheels."
The cool thing about concepts is that they can change. I would like to see something more "VW-like."
