With the Bora VR8, Volkswagen apparently plans to put the heat on the AMG-tuned Mercedes-Benz C43 and the BMW M3. The Bora is the European version of the Jetta. This unauthorized photo shows a prototype of a high-performance, all-wheel-drive Bora undergoing testing at the Nuerburgring racetrack in Germany. The car is expected to get VW's new eight-cylinder VR8 engine, either the 3.7-liter that makes 270 hp or a 4.2-liter that makes 300 hp. The Bora VR8 likely will be unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show in September and launched next spring.
