Yes, it's wagon time. Oh, and it's a manual!

This probably explains why it's likely to fetch a pretty penny on Bring a Trailer.


We typically don't go out of our way to feature BAT cars, but like with the recent eBay posts, we'll make an exception if it comes to us via our forums.

Like this 2019 Volkswagen Alltrack SEL with a six-speed manual transmission.

The car has almost 60K miles on it and is priced, for now, at $21,000.

It's Tornado Red and has some mods like Bilstein coilovers, an ECU tune, and a IS20 turbo. The car does have some minor cosmetic defects, according to the seller.

Go check it out.

    It looks very clean, it's a manual wagon... but it's a modified $21,000 Volkswagen, and the original parts are about to hit the fan. Someone is in for a series of headaches (which is probably why it's for sale now at only 3 years of age).

      Nah they would sell it now because they are still turning a profit. These were discounted at the end of their 2019 year as the model was discontinued in USA. Why not drive for 3 years and sell it at the same cost you bought it for when it's still an option. I got mine for 27k new at end of 2019 when a year earlier the car was selling for high 30s fully equipped.

    This went for $32,500 plus auction fees. Just unreal.

      It's a diy golf R wagon with a manual. Easy sell.


  • Jeff S The Cybertruck is one of the most hyped vehicles in decades.
  • Nrd515 This is all I could think of seeing this. I saw it in the theater with my dad about 59 years or so ago:https://www.popcorncinemashow.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mr-Sardonicus-1961-01.jpg
  • Art Vandelay I have no illusions tha my Challenger was going to be a car I wanted to own 10 seconds out of warranty. Fun, sure. Fun in 8 years? Hard pass based on the 2 years I had it
  • ToolGuy Weren't some of the most powerful engines in the M4 Sherman air-cooled? (And supercharged.)
  • ToolGuy "I installed oil temp and cylinder head temp gauges on various vehicles I was driving, so I could monitor how the engine was doing. I switched from my normal 20W50 and dropped to 15W40 oil and put down thousands of miles. Within that time, I saw a noticeable decrease in oil temps and even cylinder head temps while driving in different situations."ToolGuy has great admiration for your use of the scientific method in conducting original research.
