Hot Passat: VW's answer to the Mazdaspeed 6

Mazda owners can't have all the fun can they? Volkswagen's answer is a resounding "Hell no!" And with that, the possibility of an extra-spicy version of their mid-sized, grocery getter is on the table.

AutoExpress reports that an uprated Passat may come to market, equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 found in the R36 and, it's safe to assume, a six-speed manual or DSG feeding power through all four wheels.

When, where and how much is all up in the air, but we'd expect more information before year's end.
