The American-designed Passat GT Concept will make its appearance at Automobility LA. The concept is largely a cosmetic upgrade to give the Passat a more aggressive profile, with over 20 design changes from the standard car.
Noteworthy changes include a black honeycomb grille framed top and bottom by a red accent line, similar to the Golf GTI. Other changes include black window surrounds, roof, and trunk spoiler, as well as smoked taillights and LED headlights.
The interior showcases carbon fiber trim on the instrument panel and door trim, as well as duotone black and gray seating, and piano black console trim.
The GT is lowered 0.6 inches over large 19" Tornado wheels covering red-painted brake calipers.
Power comes from a 3.6 liter FSI VR6 producing 280 hp backed up a 6-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine benefits with reduced backpressure from a dual trapezoidal exhaust and a sport muffler.
