While there have been two new model generations after it, the VW Passat we have here is probably one of the most appealing vehicles the Wolfsburg based factory ever released. The VW Passat R36 was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007, giving owners a performance oriented business sedan that was aimed at competing with the likes of a BMW M5, Audi S6 or the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. While the vehicle wasn’t a major success, it was still a very coveted item for many VW fans worldwide.

The VW Passat R36 utilizes a 3.6 litre VR6 engine developing 300 horsepower and 350Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the R36 to sprint from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 5.6 seconds. The vehicle will achieve an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h (155mph).

The VW Passat R36 has comes with distinguishing features over the other Passat siblings, including a redesigned front and rear spoilers. Additionally, the vehicle features a 20mm lowered suspension, Recaro seats (heated in the front and rear), Bi-Xenon headlights with cornering function, and twin rear muffler tailpipes. The R36 comes with 4 wheel drive, a DSG transmission system and a sleeper, clean and stylish appeal. While it may be a full package to most, the owner of this vehicle decided to give his VW Passat R36 a more aggressive exterior look.

The wheels the client went with are Vossen Wheels. The CVT-1 directional wheels come in sizes of 20×9.5 and 20×9.5 in the rear. Featuring an Imperial Gold finish, the wheels look impeccable against the black exterior of the vehicle as well. Check out the full media gallery of this build right below.
