As for the W12 it was only 1 sec faster than the R32. Handling was appalling tho but its all forgiven cos i think it looks awesome.
As VC said if the stuck in 4wd and sorted the handling even if it is "just a golf" it'd be class.
Think we all need to lobby VW now as they said they would make it if there was enough interest lol.
clarkson is a HUGE fan of the golf especially the mk1 so it must have handled badly for those comments
i too spotted the R32 times on the leader board and to be honest i wasnt surprised, its alot of power with little control with respect to handling and brakes and the revs sounded very low.... autobox??
8 weeks to build from start to finish its a pretty decent machine, they just have to refine it now then let the public decide.
i havent loved a concept like this since the delicious ford indigo
Was really pleased with the way the season has started. It's more about cars again and less about other stuff, yet they've managed to maintain that humour and magic that the three of them manage to create! Great stuff!!
8 Weeks for what is basically a concept car is pretty good, it's a very short time to come up with a working car, let alone one that was able to drive off the stage. It just needs proper development and road testing in order for it to be taken seriously... Whether they do is another matter... I don't really see a market for a 80k golf... (surely the price with something like a W12 in it...)...
Stelvio pass.... That's gonna be on the list of driving roads for our Nurburgring/ Road trip next year! Come on!
