Volkswagen Passat CC Gold Coast – rpmGo.com

At this weekend’s Pebble Beach event Volkswagen presented the VW Passat CC Gold Coast. The special edition Passat CC is powered by the 3.6 liter FSI petrol engine that produces 280hp (206kW) and 266lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed DSG dual-clutch Triptronic gearbox. Extra features that equip the Gold Coast include a special grille, premium tri-coat paint finish with a mix of gold, brown and silver tones, new spoiler and 19 inch propeller style wheels.

The interior features ergonomically formed sport seats wrapped in leather, a three-color combination of Latte Macchiatto and Cornsilk with Bronze Piping on the seats and matching accents on the dash and door trim. The standard Passat CC will hit US showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2008, so the Gold Coast will probably be available at the same time. No clues so far on the pricing, but the standard CC will be priced at around $28,000, so expect the special edition’s price to be considerably higher.

I never thought I’d say that, but this Passat CC I like. I still hate the rear, it looks like the designers got drunk when they got to that part, but still, I’m convinced it will be a success for Volkswagen.
