This is awesome!!!!!
This is awesome!!!!!
I have met the owner a few month back in Ace Cafe.. nice but would have made more sense if it was an a4 or a6 conversion not a vw!
Seen that for sale on ed38! Sleeper, but looks sh1te...
Isn't Syncro the VW equivilant of Quattro so it's 4 wheel drive too ???? imagine the fun though.... would love to have the time and money to do something like that
I like it.. bet it's upset a few unsuspecting drivers :ninja:
i like this, nothing would give me greater pleasure than blowing 99% of anything that wanted a go off the lights in a standard looking, roughed up 't' reg passat
i would have to get a camera in the rear windscreen so i could record the look on peoples faces as i left them standing lol
This is a sleeper..
Yeah, but look at how uncontrollable is it ?!?
I bet that Passat is as set and planted as an RS4, not some crappy box top van with a lairy V8 in it that you can't go anywhere in.
It was a bit tongue in cheek.. it's obviously one of the most impractical sleepers you could build but good fun on the 1/4 mile.
I remember seeing a really ratty Mk2 Transit at the NSRA Nostalgia Nationals one year, it was absolutely silent as it rolled past the stands and we all thought it was a pit/break down wagon.
Then it pulled up to the line and with no drama or massive burnouts it did a 8 second quarter, and it made so little noise that nobody turned round to watch it ! haha
Seen that a few times and saw it for sale a while ago on ed38, love it!!
Would love to be in that, scaring a few people off the streets.
I remember years ago, my mate had a tatty B reg Vauxhall Cavalier Hatchback, rust all over it, looked crap, but it had a full GSI2000 engine conversion, and it was wicked to see it fly past a few decent cars that were around back then.
Yea thats a sleeper and a half! 'Officer, How could my car go 170MPH? Its a clapped out Passat?' :)
well N8 thanx for your comment but it might look like **** but guess what ive left it parked in carparks and in public places and no need to worry as no one pays it attention, where my friend that has a lovely rs4 worries every time where ever he parks it even at home incase they break in for the keys.
S3K04 reason i didnt buy a s4 in the first place is that the rear leg room is ****!!!! and i am not a big fan of the A6 to be honest and this was perfect size (passats are smaller than a A6 by 8cms). Even thou it is called a Passat Syncro or 4 motion it not really it is more like a A6 quattro under it all. I am running all the quattro stuff with RS6 coilovers etc and it handles just as well as any RS I have driven or been in. Even Doug at MRC compliments it on its handling :)
otherwise guys thank you very much i am the very proud owner of the passat and it is a true awesome beast ;) a e36 m3 last week could not understand how i made him look like a 1L micra the look on his face was priceless :)
Another added benifit as mentioned above is that giving it some one day come round a corner and the police was waiting for a sports car of some sort to appear ;) i went past them no more the wiser, hiding the exhaust was the best thing i ever did lol. but then one day going up the A10 to Ware traffic cops pulled me as the car didn't look or sound normal, I wasn't breaking any laws or anything, i just think they wanted to see it under the bonnet as they had a list of all the mods declared and couldnt believe it. Some times these guys are really nice and as much of a petrol heads as us.
Except for a few of MRC tuned cars i.e. over 500bhp and a couple of bikes i still haven't found anything that gives me to much hassel ;)
if you have any questions let me know :) but thanx for the kind words.
