VW R32 Spontaneously Catches Fire!

Linkie.

Dude parked his brand new R32. Came back 6 hours later to find it melting away in the Florida sun.

Apparently this isn't the first R32 that spontaneously combusted.

Is that one of the new R32's? I looked at one of one of those for a second. I dont think it's nearly as good looking a car as the older one.:iono:

You might want to watch this

I guess you guys never saw this!

I am not a big fan of the new R32 but please saying my car is put together cheap is dead wrong
my 04 R32 has been overall the most awesome car I have ever had.
