2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDi Cup

Long before “Dieselgate”, Volkswagen teased us with a performance version of their super-economy car; the short lived 2010 Jetta TDi Cup Edition. What you got for your hard-earned bucks was a basically a Jetta GLi with its heart yanked out and replaced by the thrifty and torque-laden turbodiesel, and for good measure they popped on VW “Thunderbunny” body kit. But this wasn’t just a styling exercise for Volkswagen – they had actively engaged in racing the Jetta TDi in the TDi Cup to help promote the TDi brand, so this car has some racing heritage as well. Only 1,500 were produced in black, red, blue, or today’s white:

Cons: radio doesn’t work

Hang on, I know what you’re going to say – 10k for a 230,000-mile 13-year-old Jetta? Yeah, it’s a pretty crazy ask. You wouldn’t be wrong, though this TDi Cups were very rare and are extremely hard to find today. One sold on BaT back in 2021 for nearly $18,000, but it was also much lower mileage than this one. Frankly there are better deals out there, but if the TDi Cup is on your must-have list, there just are not a ton to choose from at any given time. And on it’s own, the Thunderbunny kit is worth a pretty penny – so worst case, you could probably part this one out. Seems like a shame to do though, given that these cars are so longevous and this one still looks pretty good.

    Tartan inserts are definitely cool but an automatic in a TDi is definitely not. While the engines will hit a half mil mark with proper maintenance, the automatic transmissions are the weak links. At 230k it may be getting close to a transmission change…
