Two cars vie for the title of most significantly altered machine, the first of which is the Golf Alltrack Country you see above. It's a tribute to the Golf Country of the early '90s, which was a lifted Golf hatch with four-wheel-drive and brush guards. This modern interpretation takes the already taller Alltrack and adds an extra two inches of ground clearance along with all-terrain tires on 15-inch wheels. Extra foglights and light bars adorn the front, and the back of the Golf has a bike rack with two Trek mountain bikes. On top is a pop-up tent with a solar panel. The panel charges batteries mounted below the trunk, which in turn power the entertainment system mounted in the spare tire well. There's also a solar-heated shower campers can use.
The other big build on display is a GTI built by the creative director of Vossen wheels. It's called a GTI RS, and features graphics and logos with the name in the same script Porsche uses for its cars. Bolted to each fender is a radical Rocket Bunny widebody kit, and of course Vossen wheels lurk beneath. Up top is a Thule roof rack and cargo box. Inside the car, the rear seats have been removed entirely in favor of a roll cage, and the factory front seats have been replaced by a pair of racing seats with some dark red leather upholstery.
There's one other Golf that Volkswagen has on display. It's a Golf R with a sharp-looking paint job. It's finished in a dark black with some slender stripes in the colors of the German flag. Complementing the stripes are some white stripes at the bottom with the Vossen wheels name, and a big "7" in a circle. Not much else was done to it except a set of Vossen wheels and lowering springs from H&R Springs.
Another subtly modified VW at the event is the Jetta GLI Nardo. Its modification list includes a "Nardo" gray hue cribbed from Audi, and H&R Springs coilover suspension. What makes it unique is that it will have a variety of wheels bolted to it throughout the event. All the wheels come from HRE.
The last car on display is a Volkswagen Beetle. It was built for BMX racer Alise Post, and unsurprisingly, the modifications are mostly geared to riding BMX bikes. The roof rack has space for a pair of GW BMX bikes, and the trunk features a rack for a couple of bike wheels and tires. It has a "Habanero Orange" paint job with Volkswagen graphics along the doors, and it's dropped to the ground on H&R coilover suspension.
