Speaking of... Doesn't VW have a diesel GTI that's in supercar territory, that the U.S. will not import? Pretty sure I saw an article on that about a year ago. Bio-diesel, if I'm not mistaken.

I believe it was part of their Audi division.

With my DD being a VW TDI, I can tell you that butt dyno has me believing that from a dead stop, it rivals the Mustang. I'm sure if I upgraded the turbo setup, it would be a bad a$$ car!

I think you might be referring to this, sir:

Nope. This one was unmistakably a VW. Great car in this article, though.

Could it have been the GTI W12?

My wife drives our Tundra 5.7LV8 (no TRD package). (It's a crewmax cab.)

Whenever I get a chance to drive it, the seat-o-the-pants dyno makes me believe it would be a worthy adversary.
