2010 Volkswagen CC R - Click above for high-res image gallery

Oh Volkswagen. How is it that the automaker of the people makes what just might be the sleekest, sexiest sedan in the world? No offense to A-M's Rapide, but the Volkswagen CC is not a two-door coupe with a stretch and some rear-doors grafted on. The CC is clean sheet, or at least as clean sheet as the Passat's hard points allow for. And now with the CC R, it's even better looking. And no, we're still not buying the four-door coupe marketing nonsense, no matter how many times someone quotes Wikipedia at us. The CC R is dreamboat sedan.

Let's get the obvious out of the way: CC R – tee hee hee. We can't imagine the "there's a bad moon on the right" jokes ever ceasing. That's mindless naming conventions for you. Aside from that, the R badge (or R-line as they call it here in the land of yummy sausage, pickled everything and friendly, frisky fräuleins) is very identical to Audi's S-line. So all show and no go. But if you're going to do it...

      Sorry not a fan of the excessive juvenile commentary.

      Mama Mia! What a difference the lower ride height makes. So nice. I love the tails and the ground kit.

        for under 40K.

        best execution of the '4door coupe' on the market. bar none. cant stand the MB. the AM is nice but as mentioned looks like a bastard job.

      Nice. Nothing radical, nothing polarizing, simply nice. Well done VW!

      If I could get one here in the US with black paint, brown leather interior, 2.0T engine, DSG, and 4Motion, I'd buy one.

      Am I the sole person that thinks this looks like a FCX Clarity?

      its got that Mercedes S-class grove along the side which is actually quite nice. stanadrd interior but also nice. the car looks very nice.

      what ive noticed lately is that loads of cars are being built for 4 people with the center at the back being used for a center console or an armrest etc. quite a good idea actually. room for a lot more gadgets.

      saves me having to convert a car into a 4 seater like i was planning too ages ago..

      When I first saw the CC at the dealership I was smitten. But can I just ask who's bright idea was it to leave out a manual transmission option for those of us who want (need) all-wheel-drive? How I would love to see a CC with the V6, 4-Motion, and a nice 6-Speed manual as a possible configuration.
      Oh well, I guess the folks at HPA Motorsports will be able to fix VW's oversight... for a pretty hefty fee, mind you.

        No engine upgrades?

      The larger grille on the CC R only serves to remind me of a flounder as the bulbuous headlights seem to be pushed to the side of the car. On the CC, that same perception isn't there because the headlights and grille seem to be in better proportion.

      To bad VW of America doesn't offer the saddle tan option :( Just black or black on white... grrrrrrrrrrrr

      It's not "bad moon on the right". It's "bathroom on the right". Duh.

        Hey Autoblog, you know it's "There's a bad moon on the RISE," right? Hence the title of the song, "Bad Moon Rising." Yet another fail.

        But I agree with above, it totally sounds like "there's a bathroom on the right."
