TTAC Photochop: VW MR
Last Friday we took a look at the future Audi R4. I told you how VAG plans to cook several dishes with the same ingredients. The house special will be served by VW, which already teased us with several appetizers (see: Concept R and the EcoRacer). The production VW MR should be situated somewhere between the two concept cars. The R was an aesthetic study that previewed the new VW stylistic approach for the beginning of this decade, while the EcoRacer was more engineered than designed (its looks seem to have been compromised for efficiency). With Audi assembling the sports-luxury version of the car, and SEAT going for the sports-latino market share, we can imagine that VeeDub will get the eco-model. That is, of course, if they don't throw in an MR Skoda as well. We won't mention the Boxster/Cayman because the situation is already too complicated. Long story short: expect a VAG mid-engine sports car for every taste and wallet with the VW model, depicted here, being the most affordable both to buy and run.
