The dream of every highperformance tuner is access to the best, most durable, precise components; intelligent and adaptable control systems; and progressive, appealing styling. It.s the dream of every highperformance tuner to transform that excellence into the extraordinary, to create exhilarating answers to the question, .What if.?. Volkswagen shares this drive to push the dynamic and aesthetic boundaries of its vehicles. The vast network of engineers and designers within VW.s worldwide reach never need to be urged to challenge conventional wisdom, and this philosophy is reflected not only in the unique character of VW.s production vehicles, it.s also fully displayed in a trio of stunning ultra-high-
performance projects built for SEMA 2005 in combination with HPA Motorsports.
The Jetta R GT began its transformation as a base 2005 model with a 150horsepower, 2.5liter fivecylinder engine and frontwheel drive. After the combined efforts of Volkswagen Design and HPA, however, it now sports freshastomorrow bodywork and a powerful, exquisitely massaged drivetrain that's as comfortable cruising Pacific Coast Highway as it is smoking the competition at weekend time trials.
HPA replaced the base 2.5liter engine with a twinturbocharged, twinintercooled, 550horsepower variant of VW.s 3.2liter, 240horsepower sixcylinder V6 that powers the R32. To ensure that every bit of the torque gets to the ground in the most entertaining way possible, HPA fit VW.s highly acclaimed DSG twinclutch transmission and 4MOTION allwheel drive, both systems suitably modified by HPA to complement the engine.s bravura performance. A KW FIA GT 3way coilover race suspension and WRCspec Brembo brake system were also installed to help harness the forces unleashed by the twinturbo V6.
Cloaked with a special smoke gray paint treatment in the best Qship tradition, the revised coachwork includes new front and rear bumper fascias, side rocker panels and bespoke rear spoiler, offset by contrasting graphics and smoked glass treatment. The Jetta R GT.s willingness to run is revealed by the huge Michelin ultrahighperformance tires mounted to the 9.5 x 19inch custombuilt, forgedaluminum, modular Avus ® alloy wheels. Should the Jetta R GT hit the track, changing to a set of 9.5 x 18inch monoblock, forgedaluminum DTMspec Avus wheels is quick and easy with their DTMstyle center locks and the AP Racing air jacks incorporated within the Jetta.s framework.
The Jetta R GT.s cockpit is inspired by the needs and desires of the weekend racer. An integrated roll cage, Recaro race buckets, Schroth ® harnesses and a fuel cell provide the required safety elements for competition, while an F1style Stack electronic gauge cluster relays operating parameters to the driver quickly and clearly. Black leather, black Alcantara and mattblack carbon fiber styling elements complete the interior.s unashamedly competitive character.
