The Caddy Speed of course :D

In seven months arose from a used Caddy Life, built in 2004 in Wolfsburg a very special car: The Caddy Speed. The sporty white-blue eye-catcher was due to the general assembly of Volkswagen in Hamburg and the subsequent vehicle exhibition.

With the Caddy Speed put five vehicle mechatronics trainees by Volkswagen under the guidance of their trainer Sascha Spitzer their ideas by a sportier Caddy.

For special projects such as the vehicle speed Caddy plan the trainees all the steps from beginning to end and are also responsible for implementing them. At the end of something other then a Caddy: with 2.0 litre FSI turbo engine with 200 hp and direct transmission, tiefergelegt (8 cm rear, front 6 cm), 19-inch wheels, sport exhaust system, xenon headlamps, a bodykit and a Dackkantenspoiler thread and a chassis with a flip kit. Front GTI seats were built and how the rear seat with a blue leather and Alcantara related. In addition to the steering wheel is also the brakes, R32. To sport with the sports car, has a retractable rear cargo area with up to 80 kg load and a holder for two bicycles (the front wheels must be removed from the vessel) built.
