- Q cars – what would you have?
2.5t RB skyline engine and driveline in a goppingly ugly mahooosive estate.
Cheap and tunable to silly power levels.
Only spotty nerds know what they are underneath
I think the fact that it looks exactly like a skyline from the front might just be a giveaway as to it’s true nature. They are truly horrendous looking cars too – like some one rear ended a skyline in a volvo.Posted 5 years agobigphilblackpoolMember
Passat w8 if you can find one 280bhp standard and no daft spoilers etc just looks like ur average derv!!! Blackpools full of sleepers, theres a young lad in a micra steel wheels and a huge exhaust, i thought id give him a do in my fezzer rs and i was gobsmacked!!!! Pulled up alongside him, “whats in that pal” pulsar lunp 4×4 drivetrain running 300 odd bhp, theres also a golf estate rat look mk4 tdi, but it houses a 2.5tdi from a audi with fettled internals blower and ecu, he stil gets 30-40 mpg and its running daft torqe figures, allways see him flying about embarrassing focus rs es and vxrs, oh also zafira vxr de badged thatd be fun!!!!Posted 5 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
How about a Corrado G60? Not Q enough?
Corrados aren’t really Q, but there are fair few about with R32 motors in and some turboed and supercharged VR6s around too. Not so much ‘Q’ as just not particularly well recognised. They look kind of sporty though. So not.
A mk2 GTi with a VR6 or a tweaked 1.8T in maybe. Or the Mk3 Golf VR6, though Mk3s are mostly awful.
There was a Focus ST170 Estate for a few years as well, quick-ish.
And a G40 Polo with an uprated charger…Posted 5 years agoSandwichSubscriber
Golf Mark 3 Gti 16V engine was reputedly stronger than the VR6 when first put together. VW told the engineers to de-rate it, there were a whole host of them breathed on by the tuning boys that went like greased pooh off a shiny shovel. My tuned cars always run standard wheels to keep the ride reasonable on lowered suspension.Posted 5 years ago
It must be possible to slot a 3.2l TT engine into a modern base model golf with tuned suspension for a whole bundle of laughs.
