Yes I'm an old man! 

 

Been wanting one of these ever since saw the concept and the test mules, so went and asked the question at local dealers (which a friend now helpfully works for :D) in the middle of September and put deposit down and confirmed the build order.It was on the build schedule for week beginning 15th October, it arrived in the UK the 9th November and the dealer on 17th November, collected it yesterday 8>)

 

Specs:

 

2017 MY VW Arteon R-Line

 

280PS 2 litre TFSI

Maximum power 280ps at 5100rpm
Maximum torque 258lbs.ft at 1700rpm

 

4 motion & DSG

 

ACC / Lane Assist / Traffic Jam Assist / XDS Differential / DCC / Active Display (all as standard)

 

Only options ticked:  Paint & Heated Windscreen

 

Turmeric Yellow Metallic (pictures don't do it justice, way better in person)

 

Makes life in stop/start traffic way better than my old A5 as I've got dodgy knees and the heavy clutch was starting to take its toll

 

Few pictures

Bit of an update on this, used daily for work and has been handy in collecting bits for the G (picked up some bumpers in this and went in no issue :D)

 

In terms of mpg et al

(Photo is a bit old as done double that, need to take another!)

 

Rough average mpg (all depends on traffic really!)

Pointless but fun screen :D
