Developed for the Herndon, Va. Police Department, engineers and designers overhauled the Fun-to-Drive Passat Wagon to feature some serious upgrades. Outside the E.R.V. Concept, a Hi-Def body styling package and spoilers create a stylish and imposing presence. FMS Automotive and added painted accents combine to create a custom two-tone matte black-on-black paint work.
On the inside, custom components and calibration, APR LLC raised engine performance levels in this already potent 2.0L TSI four-cylinder engine, help back up the performance look on the outside. The engine achieves a reported road-pounding 250 hp and 299 lbs. ft. of torque. Also included in the package is an APR-engineered carbon-fiber cold air intake and automatic transmission.
Holding the E.R.V. Concept to the pavement, are Pirelli 235/40 R18 Pirelli High Performance All-Season tires mounted over Volkswagen's own 18-inch Velos alloy wheels in custom matte black finish. For added stopping power, the Passat Wagon E.R.V. Concept was upgraded with Passat 3.6L brake pads and 345 x 30 mm rotors. H&R Special Springs LP helps ensure this Passat can handle its newfound performance and extra cargo with their built-to-order, Law Enforcement specification coil over suspension.
The interior was not neglected and features everything needed for Community Policing activities. FMS Automotive magicians expertly created custom-built enclosures and mounts, to hold all the communications and emergency lighting gear in place. Unless the lights and sirens are blaring, you would think this is just another Euro-tuned Passat Wagon, not the high-performance Community Service vehicle it really is.
