Walkaround of 2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Pirelli WC Race Car with Tristan Herbert

After the most recent race at Laguna Seca, VW caught up with Tristan Herbert, driver of the #33 HPA Motorsports Volkswagen Jetta GLI, to discuss the race specifications of his car. Surprisingly enough, it's not highly modified and remains close to what you'd find in a 2012 GLI at a dealership.

The 2012 VW Jetta GLI partners with Fender. The gods of rock smile.
Driving the all-new performance inspired 2012 VW Jetta GLI is definitely an experience, and the Fender audio system provides the soundtrack. It's no small honor that Fender, arguably the most iconic name in audio, partnered exclusively with Volkswagen to make sure the new line up of VWs sound as good as they drive. The GLI already prowls the streets with a rock star attitude. With its aggressive stance, 2.0-liter, 200hp turbocharged engine, interior sticking, honeycomb grill and flashy red caliper breaks the GLI is photogenic and it knows it. And with the addition of the Fender Premium Audio System the final piece of the puzzle is in place. This nine-speaker system is specifically designed to capture the raw emotion of a live performance, making it a "face-melting" audio experience. And according to Brian Tedeschi, Fender's Business Affairs manager, that's a technical term. We had Danielle Gumro catch-up and rock-out (literally) at the Chicago Auto Show with the big brains at Fender to hear the inspiration and science behind the gut-busting sound. This state-of the-art sound system was the product of over three years of research and development to bring unmatched audio clarity at high and low volume to your driving experience. In laymen's terms this means a lot of really smart people spent a really long time making sure that this audio system is going to be better, louder and generally more "face-melting" than anything you've heard before.
