While some people just talk it makes it easy! Often we have already seen various renderings on the internet which the VW Caddy either as GTi or show it as a widebody version. But so far it has stayed with these virtual dreams. But now the body shop Reflex Auto Design comes from England and shows us a very real VW Caddy MK6 R -> albeit with a TDi engine! The company actually specializes in rebuilding vehicles from the Volkswagen Group after accidents. But that the guys can do a lot more with this project that lets the van mutate into the optical MK6 R Caddy. The main focus is of course on the complete widebody kit which consists of a new bumper with front splitter, wheel arch extensions all around, rear bumper, radiator grille without emblem, new side skirts and a Milltek sports exhaust system in R optics.
Technical details such as lowering or a set of BBS multi-spoke design aluminum rims in silver round off the vehicle phenomenally. The Reflex Auto Design R Caddy is probably the only one so far because it's not that simple, after all, none of the Golf R parts simply fit the Caddy. The Reflex Auto Design team already released the car some time ago and we are of course pleased to be able to show you the pictures of it. After the extensive tuning cure that the VW Caddy was allowed to endure, it is now visually much more beefy, much more individual and dynamic than the production version and could have come from the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles plant in Poznań, Poland. So if you have been secretly thinking about buying a VW Caddy for a long time or are even the happy owner, the Reflex Auto Design variant is definitely an interesting template for the local tuning partner.
As far as the further changes to optics or technology are concerned, we have tried to find out the most important details. As always, we have listed what came out of this in a small summary for you in the lower part of the article. If you discover more changes that we have missed, please use our comment box and let us know, we will then add them to the article as soon as possible.
Ps. In the photo gallery below is also a caddy on MK7 based in Orange to see that was equipped with a set of 5 spokes Porsche rims. More is currently unknown to us for this vehicle but unfortunately.
