This is a very rare 2003 Volkswagen Passat W8 4Motion Sedan in excellent, like-new condition. Won't find a nicer W8 anywhere. It's a true sleeper and an excellent future collector's item. In this car's exact configuration (USA market, W8 Sedan, Tiptronic trans, Silverstone Gray exterior, Gray leather interior), only 243 were produced, with less than a couple thousand believed to have been produced for the total 2003 production run. 

Except for the hot-rod S4, the Passat W-8 had the only eight-hole motor in its size class. It was the only car sold with an ain't-seen-that-before engine configuration, which is an all-aluminum 4.0-liter engine comprised of two narrow-angle (15 degree) V-4 cylinder banks joined at a 72-degree angle to form a double-vee, hence the W-8 nomenclature. Two balance shafts help to quell the vibes that arise from the flat (180 degree) crank chosen for the even power impulses it allows.  It also has four-wheel drive. 

With this novel system, VW has packaged a 4.0-liter, eight-cylinder powerplant in a compact unit to fit easily under the hood of a Passat. And from that dense engine package, it has extracted 270 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 273 pound-feet of torque at a mere 2750 rpm, along with a mellifluous engine note that flutters melodically at moderate revs but barks like a small-block Chevy at full throttle. 

VW hooked this sophisticated W-8 to a five-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic (a six-speed manual would be available later). The transmission, in turn, is connected to an all-wheel-drive mechanism called 4MOTION. The system depends primarily on a Torsen center differential that allows the car to operate at a 50/50 torque allocation until one axle begins to slip, whereupon the differential sends more torque (up to 67 percent) to the axle with the greater adhesion.
