Wow, Impressive for a VW. It looks they they borrowed some of the Lamborghini designers to help design their super car.

VW neeeds to stop building such nice cars. If they keep doing this, there will be no reason to get an Audi.

And I bet they put the little 2L diesel in that car. :D

Incorrect, VW does not own Porsche.

The Volkswagen Group comprises two passenger car brand groups, the Volkswagen Brand Group (Bugatti, Bentley, Volkswagen, Skoda) and the Audi Brand Group (Lamborghini, Audi, Seat).

Not bad at 100 HP per liter. That's a 6.0-liter V12 under the hood there with 458 lb-ft of torque to go along with that 600 HP. Here's an article previewing the car with some more pics of it too.
