Exclamation VW New Snowplow @ SEMA

Check this ridiculous stupid VW snowplow!

Almost every one of its exterior design/aero elements and the crazy 400-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre four (crank up the boost from 1.0 bar to 1.8 bar and the engine will make 500 hp easily) screams Group B, but Volkswagen never raced the little hatch in that class (because it picks up snow).
1982 Golf gets a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential to put the power to the ground, according to Auto 123. Additionally, the cooling system was moved to the rear (check out those cooling fans) to help even out the weight-distribution of the front-wheel-drive hatch.

Must be a Superbowl commercial, lots more to come.
I personally don't watch Superbowl, not a Football fan.
It's a marketing hooplah! The StupidBowl! How much for 1 minute commercial?
This year, the average cost of a 30-second commercial will be about $4 million, or $133,000 per second, about the same as last year.
from: http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifest...ba3_story.html The biggest advertisers — Coca Cola, Anheuser-Busch, General Motors, etc. — will pay far less than the reported average, says Marc Morse, senior vice president of media-buying agency RJ Palmer in New York.

Bruno Mars is 1/2 time show, not really missing anything there either.

Yes it is a Superbowl ad. I stumbled on it by using the words 'kill the messenger' in a post and it created a link. People thought I was real funny doing that.

I really never liked it when these automatic links to ads appeared.

But this ad is hilarious!
