Fourteen apprentices from the German car maker’s Zwickau production plant collaborated on the bright blue Biturbo Wagon concept that was unveiled in Austria today.
Under the hotted-up Golf’s pinstriped bonnet sits the twin-turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine from the new-generation Passat. The engine produces 177kW and 500Nm, and powers all four wheels via Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
The car maker hasn’t released performance data for the Golf Biturbo Wagon concept, but based on its outputs it’s certain to be no slouch. The same drivetrain propels the larger and heavier Passat wagon from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds, while the 135kW/380Nm front-drive Golf GTD Wagon takes 7.9sec and the 221kW/380Nm all-paw petrol Golf R Wagon stops the clock in 5.1sec.
The Alor Blue and Deep Black pearl effect paintwork catches the eye, while the apprentices also fitted the Biturbo Wagon with matching interior trim, bigger alloy wheels and lowered suspension.
