VIDEO: VW Passat R36 "The Battle" commercial

VW's Passat R36 is, unquestionably, the coolest-looking Passat you (assuming "you" live on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean) can buy today. With its slammed-to-the-ground stance, 10-spoke wheels, and aggressive-looking aero bits, it looks more like a product that should be sporting four rings on the grille and not the circular " VW" badge. Oh, and 300 horsepower doesn't hurt, either. Volkswagen worked with OPTIX Digital Pictures to create the TV spot we've embedded after the jump, which depicts one of the R36 wagons in a race against an arrow launched from an archer's bow. Sure, it doesn't really make a lot of sense, but the car's a hot number and the music's good. Also, because it's a European spot, it's refreshingly devoid of the usual CYA legalese on-screen disclaimers, because Europeans don't need to be told that racing Robin Hood's arrow can be dangerous.

UPDATE: Added the YouTube version after the jump as well for those if you who had trouble w/ the Netscape Video.
