Volkswagen has just revealed its latest fleet of modified and custom cars. The Volkswagen “enthusiast fleet” is a cluster of concepts it’s done each year for the past few years. Like Jeep’s Easter Jeep Safari concepts, but a little more on-road biased and a little less supercharged V8-equipped.
The first of the seven is the Golf Alltrack Combi. It’s a 2019 Golf Alltrack with parts from a host of other VW’s. Starting with the front bumper of the GTE. That’s the hot plug-in hybrid model we don’t get in North America. It loses the Alltrack’s lower plastic skid plate and has a sportier look than the stock piece. The Combi also takes the short-throw gearshift from the GTD diesel, the rear spoiler from the GTI Rabbit Edition, and adds pink 90’s-themed accents in place of the GTI’s red stripe. It has H&R adjustable lowering springs, and VW accessories like a light bar, roof rails, and a Thule cargo box.
The GTI Rabbit Confetti takes the GTI Rabbit Edition and sprinkles it with bunnies. It’s a wrap of cornflower blue covered with multicoloured versions of the rabbit logo. Plus, VW says, there are some other surprises in the wrap. The car gets 19-inch wheels with Rotiform Aerodisk wheel covers with ’80s graphics, lowering springs, and a Thule basket.
The GLI Super Touring Concept was developed with tuner Fifteen52. It takes the GLI Autobahn and adds a set of Fifteen52 wheels that are being shown for the first time. The car is slammed on K&W V3 coil overs, gets a big spoiler and larger brakes.
The Arteon R-Line was already shown at SEMA 2019. It’s on H&R Ultra Low coils and wears 21-inch Vossen wheels. After SEMA it was fitted with a new custom valence and aluminum floor mats from Luft Technik as well as a Forge Motorsports big brake kit.
This Tiguan is ready for adventure. The Tiguan Adventure uses H&R raising springs (which with our roads should be more popular than lowering) and 18-inch Rotiform wheels with all-terrain tires. It gets added bumper protection, aluminum side steps, and a Thule kayak carrier.
For the Atlas Basecamp, VW’s Design Centre California boss Alex Earle added all-terrain tires and Fifteen52 wheels. Plus a custom body kit from Air Design, H&R lift kit coil overs, and a roof rack with LED light bars front and rear and a bike rack.
Lastly, reminding you that you can get your Golf R in 40 custom-order colours, the Spektrum Concept comes in one of those 40. Ginster Yellow. With H&R adjustable lowering, 20-inch Vossen wheels, and black accents for the lower rockers.
The VW enthusiast concept vehicle fleet is set to tour major Volkswagen car meets around the US this summer.
