VWs Thunder Bunny & R GTI hot hatches at SEMA

Post by Rabbit106 on Tue Oct 28, 2008 9:48 pm

When the original Thunder Bunny Golf GTI tuned by California based firm
Automotive Performance Systems (APS) was delivered to Motor Trend
magazine late in 1981, the testers wrote that the little white wonder
packs its own kind of lightning-quick rabbit punch one thats
guaranteed to kayo unsuspecting boulevard bullies. That car spurred on
the actual launch of the GTI for the first time in America the
following year.

VW has enlisted the help of Neuspeed to design a concept vehicle that
reflects its roots in the sport compact tuning community. Also called
the called Thunder Bunny, the new car is an updated, thoroughly modern
version of the original, and it debuts alongside the Concept R GTI on
the Volkswagen stand at the 2006 SEMA Show.

Under the hood of the Thunder Bunny is a newly developed turbocharger
system designed by Neuspeed especially for Volkswagens 2.5-liter
five-cylinder engine. The installation includes a modified intake
manifold, Garrett ball-bearing turbocharger and air-to-air intercooler,
plus a stainless exhaust system, which boosts power to 225hp.
The white exterior includes a larger central grille and a more muscular
rear valance framing a twin R32-style exhaust from Neuspeed.

The R GTI features the trademark hexagonal grille, 19in alloys and develops 400hp and 340ft-lb of torque on 100 octane racing fuel, enough to propel the R GTI to 60mph from rest in just 4.8 seconds.
The performance package was developed by APR, and includes a large
Garrett turbo with twice the flow capacity of the stock unit, and is
pumped up to 21 PSI of boost.
