Volkswagen ART3on: Apprentice-built special hits 100km/h in 3.9 seconds

A team of Volkswagen Australia apprentices has made the Arteon 206TSI into a sub-4.0-second car, as a showcase for the World Time Attack Challenge at Sydney Motorsport Park. The modified five-door, dubbed ART3on, makes 360kW and 600Nm from its 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, up from 206kW and 350Nm. That extra grunt has been liberated by a raft of 'Stage 3' parts from RacingLine, including software tweaks and hardware changes like a bigger turbocharger.

Volkswagen Amarok V6: World Time Attack contender in the works

Volkswagen Australia is calling on its apprentices to prepare a race-ready version of the Amarok V6 ute for this year's World Time Attack Challenge next month. If you've been wondering what Volkswagen's response to news of the upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor would be, this might be it. But wait, it gets crazier. The goal, Volkswagen say, is to create a performance ute concept capable of beating the 1-minute 59-second lap time the company set with its Golf GTI hot hatch.
