The Volkswagen booth has two of our favorite cars of the LA Auto Show: the absolutely bonkers, 90s supercar-shaming Golf R 400 and the U.S.-verboten Golf R SportWagen. We managed to hunt down and kidnap the man responsible for both, and he's taking your questions live, right now.

Dr. Hendrik Muth is the manager of R for VW of America, leading the charge for all of the marque performance offerings – from R to the GTI – along with the entire VW acessory line.

What he doesn't have is any control of what products VW sends to the states. So try to quell your SportWagen rage and focus on what it takes to create the hottest V-dubs on the planet.

That's a wrap! Thanks!
