March 1982 Motor Trend test of the Neuspeed APS VW Rabbit “Thunder Bunny”


It’s always fun to take a look back at the early days of a tuner’s showcase vehicle exhibiting all of the top choice modifications available at the time thrown at it. Even to this day, this APS Neuspeed Rabbit “Thunder Bunny” hosts some impressive hardware, including a 2 liter 16 valve Oettinger engine as the center piece. Don’t miss the custom bolstered Scheel rear seats to match the fronts, and what VW wouldn’t be complete without the requisite MOMO steering wheel and BBS rims? Although we recently featured another magazine’s test of the same car, we figured you wouldn’t mind checking it out one more time. Makes us wonder, where is it now??
