Enter the Jetta R GT Concept car, which debuted at the 2005 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Starting with a basic, front-wheel-drive 2005 Jetta, Volkswagen teamed with HPA Motorsports to build a killer sedan, one fully prepped for the track and sporting 550 horsepower.

In comparison, the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is fitted with rotors that measure 288mm in front and 260mm out back.
