The attachment is just a quick mock-about of the basic shape i did last night, features conversion to a 3 door and raised wheel arches. Going to sketch a body-kit (Celica Pikes Peak style maybe) tomorrow if i remember, so hopefully more updates tomorrow!

Btw, any pics & links on Pikes Peak are appreciated :p

It looks good, but maybe it's just a bit shorter than the regular wagon.

Keep us updated!
I know it looks like shorter, but the mad bodykit and 3 door conversion make it look a lot shorter. On that note, the door maybe far too long which makes it look even shorter.. I did trace the mask, lights & windows through my screen so it actually should be the lenght of the original.. but that a concept sketch anyway :p

Thanks!

bad photoshoping o_O lol but nice idea mate :)
Grr :p

Started on the spline cage, still refining and thinking about the shapes and bodykit. Thinking about what tom said, the 3 door conversion takes alot from the passat's characteristics and makes it look shorter. Also thinking about the interior and chassis/frame etc, maybe tubular mixed with the passat's own and a big mid-engine there, possibly audi V12 TDI or the like and steering in the middle (?) ;o
