Volkswagen are said to be preparing a new much more powerful and sporty version for their Passat. Expected to make its debut next spring in Geneva Motor Show. Presumably, it will be called the VW Passat R36.

Expect the R36 to come equipped with a semi-automatic DSG gearbox driving all its wheels, lowered suspension and powerful brakes. Expect it to be expensive too.
