Volkswagen apprentices preparing sub-4.0-second Arteon

Having created a race-ready Amarok V6 last year, Volkswagen Australia apprentices are preparing a special Arteon capable of hitting 100km/h in less than four seconds for the 2019 World Time Attack Challenge in Sydney. The boosted Arteon will have an exterior wrap by Simon Murray, a prominent Sydney street artist, but the really exciting changes hide beneath its skin.

As we eased a roughly 85 per cent complete prototype out of BMW’s Nürburgring support garage, the car’s resolute tautness was apparent within the first 50 feet, telegraphing to us that the seventh generation of the Roundel’s venerable sedan is a dynamic about-face from its watered-down predecessor. It just felt right.
