Seems like all that wing would do would be to dirty up the airflow without generating any real downforce.

Whatever happened to it? Did it never make it into production? Why, if so?

250 units was built in a limited production run.

Why?
Why would anyone buy Audi TT in a Beetle clothing that costs more than Porsche Boxter S?
That is vastly inferior to drive than TT or Boxter?
That looks like a ... hmmm... 911 on steroids?

Well, I haven't got the remotest idea

Volkswagen claimed that rear spoiler generates a positive 77 kg downforce at 260 kph. However, problem is that top speed of RSi is 225 kph! (figure also claimed by VW)
Cheers.

Germany -> West Germany -> NRW -> Düsseldorf
There were 250 street going cars (all silver), the blue prototype (there are two pics above) and around 40 racing cars.

I like the rims and the spoiler. Volkswagon did a great job!
