This is a special wagon indeed – it’s truly one of one. Our parent company took this in on trade a while ago with a blown engine. The car didn’t have a ton of miles, but was completely neglected. We don’t think the previous owner ever changed the oil, which led to the engine’s early demise.

At the time, we had a mint condition drivetrain from a very special GTI sitting there, and the spark of an idea was born. We wanted to prove what Greenwood Motorsports and Wagons is capable of, so we swapped in the rare Euro-spec Edition-30 engine and 6-speed transmission. The transmission was further upgraded with a Quaife limited slip differential.

The suspension gets an upgrade with ISM coilovers all around. The Brakes are a Motorsport Brembo setup, not a simple street-big brake kit. The huge calipers and two-piece rotors stop this car unbelievably well. Not ones to leave anything alone, we also upgraded the software with a custom APR tune, along with an APR Carbonium intake and 3″ stainless downpipe. The car sports a beautiful Milltek stainless exhaust system.

On the outside, we fitted a rare imported Votex body kit, painted to match. The wheels are custom made Rotiform NUE in 19×8.5″ all around, wearing brand new Pirelli P-Zero tires. The interior has been upgraded from the boring Beige to a two tone dark brown leather combo on both the seats and door cards, with a contrasting white baseball stitching. We also upgraded the infotainment system to the latest generation of OEM Navigation, with the full premium sound system fitted.

The bottom line is that this is without question, one-of-a-kind!
