VW Golf Variant Biturbo Edition Features A 240PS TDI Engine From The Passat

The VW Golf GTI Dark Shine is not the only show car built by apprentices that debuts at this year’s Wörthersee GTI Meet.

While the former project has been built by apprentices from Wolfsburg, the Golf Variant Biturbo Edition study is the work of a group of apprentices from VW’s Zwickau vehicle plant (Volkswagen Sachsen).

The VW Golf Variant Biturbo Edition puts more emphasis on mechanical upgrades, as it is powered by a 2.0-liter biturbo diesel engine sourced from the new VW Passat Variant 2.0 TDI 4Motion. The unit produces 240PS (237hp) and 500Nm (369lb-ft) of torque and is linked to a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

The 14 apprentices from Zwickau were the first to install this engine on a Golf Variant, which should feature pretty impressive performance specs. Unfortunately, no data were released, but the car should definitely be quicker than the production VW Golf GTD Variant.

The show car features an Alor blue paint job with Deep Black pearl effect stripes on the engine hood, roof and doors, large alloy wheels and a lowered suspension. The cabin sports accents in the same color as the exterior.

Following the GTI meeting, the VW Golf Variant Biturbo Edition will be showcased at other events, including the opening of an extended exhibition at the August Horch Museum in Zwickau.
