This Is What Volkswagen's Answer To The Ford Raptor Would Look Like

Rendering

In typical German fashion, it would be a bit of an oddball.

We spent a week with the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack to experience what VW's idea of an off-road vehicle looks like, and can confirm that it's basically in a class of its own. There aren't really any other lifted, off-road wagons on the market unless you count the Subaru Outback and premium Audi A4 Allroad. Like the Alltrack, the Ford F-150 Raptor is also in a class of its own. There are some other trucks that try to compete, but after driving the Raptor we can confirm that it stands well above the competition.

No one would ever mention the Golf Alltrack and the Ford F-150 Raptor in the same sentence, but that hasn't stopped designer Mo Aoun from drawing up what the Golf could look like as a Raptor-fighter. The rendering has been named the Golf Safari Mood. This theoretical car features massive BFGoodrich tires, a roof-mounted light bar and lots of body cladding. If the idea ever reached production, it would be powered by the Golf R's 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with around 300 hp. This rendering will clearly never be built by Volkswagen, but we'd love to see some rich enthusiast build this insane looking Golf.

Even with 300 hp on tap, we aren't sure that this Golf could keep up with the Raptor on off-road course. If we're going to live in fantasy land, we might as well power the Golf Safari with the 400 hp engine from the Golf R400 concept car. We really love the F-150 Raptor, but we'd pay good money to see it go toe-to-toe with this turbocharged Volkswagen off-roading beast.
