When Volkswagen first released photos of the then-called Passat CC, it took the industry by storm. It had been so long since VW stepped out of it’s normal Golf/Jetta/Passat offerings, especially stateside, that anything new would be welcomed with open arms, but for VW fanatics everywhere it was love at first sight. Now having been in production for the better part of a decade and fully-embraced by the VW community, the CC has dropped the “Passat” prefix and stands alone in both its aesthetics and its demand, and Lucas’ (@mintycc) VW CC R-Line on Vossen VLE-1 Wheels is a great example of just how striking the car can be.
With the addition of a basic air suspension kit, Lucas’ CC hovers just a hair off the ground when parked, but can be raised at the click of a button to a safely drivable height or to maneuver over speed bumps—but when parked, it’s a head-turner.
Long and sleek, the CC’s body hugs the ground and a little massaging of the rear arches has made just enough clearance for our 20×10.5 VLE-1 Limited-Edition wheels to tuck in the rear.
With 20×9 VLE-1’s residing in the front, the setup makes for the perfect staggered look…
A look that is admired by many, including Lucas’ friend, Jessica Ramirez (@jessicaramirez.g). Thanks again to Lucas and Jessica for coming out and spending an afternoon with us while we captured his VW CC R-Line on Vossen VLE-1 Wheels on film!
