Thumbs down

This was driven by JC in the first episode of TG Season 10. It is another one of those concepts which will never ever see the light of the day. It was built by VW for the annual ritual of concepts they make every year, as they had a wide parts bin to choose from. But it is indeed very quick in a straight line. And thats about it.
