In Europe the new VW Passat comes across better than the U.S. market cars. There may not be a logical reason for this impression. This HPA Motorsports Passat is hot. Now, the Passat looks right. The large mock air intakes at either side of the bumper look fantastic. They work in concert with the matte paint in the center section to visually fix the proportional problems on the Passat's snout. The barcode-like racing stripe and the twin turbo charger kit don't hurt either, especially when mixed with DSG and VW's 4Motion AWD. If VW creates an R version of its Passat, this is what it should look like.
