The vehicle was classified as a compact executive automobile and produced as a limited edition high-performance five-passenger station wagon. It featured a longitudinal front engine, quattro permanent four-wheel drive and was built on a Volkswagen Group B4 platform. The powertrain consisted of a six-speed manual transmission, driven by a 2.2-liter five-cylinder 20-valve turbocharged engine that achieved 62.1 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds, with a maximum speed of 162.8 miles per hour.
