Volkswagen Passat CC

Volkswagen Passat CC

The Passat is getting a much needed revamp later this year. In addition to an all-new, Benz-inspired design, the Volkswagen Passat CC ($TBA; Q4 2008) offers several innovative assistance systems, such as the Lane Assist lane keeping system; Dynamic Drive Control electronic chassis control system; Park Assist parking assistant; and ACC Automatic Distance Control with stopping distance reducing Front Assist. The CC, which VW calls its first four-door coupe, also sports a huge, electrically actuated Panorama power vent sunroof. The Passat CC will come standard with the 200-hp 2.0 TSI engine, available with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed Tiptronic transmission. You can upgrade to the 280-hp 3.6L FSI, which comes standard with the 6-speed Tiptronic transmission.

  • BMW Alpina B7

    For any Uncrate readers out there in need of a faster 7-series Bimmer than the guy down the street, your wait is over. The drool-worthy BMW Alpina B7 ($TBA) features a 4.4-liter, 90-degree V-8 engine that produces 500 horsepower and propels the B7 from 0-60 mph in a mere 4.8 seconds. The B7 also features ALPINA 21-inch wheels wrapped with Z-rated performance tires, while the sport-tuned suspension includes Active Roll Stabilization. A specialized aero kit adds the finishing touch to the most killer sedan we've seen in a while. [via]

  • 2006 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

    With Volkswagen's introduction today of the new 2006 Jetta GLI ($TBA), it looks like the company finally came to its senses and will be offering a model without the ridiculous chrome on the frontend — and we couldn't be happier. The new GLI model (pricing not yet announced) features a 2.0 T turbocharged four-cylinder that's good for 200-hp and is available with a six-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic shifting. In addition to the standard Jetta features, the GLI has an upgraded suspension, blue-tinted windows, optional 18-inch alloy wheels, alloy pedals and trim, and a three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and telephone controls and DSG shift paddles.
