To be honest, I have my doubts seeing this. There are some weird artifacts in the photo that make it seem like it may be a render. Though I saw somewhere someone compared these images to a current gen Skoda and they were remarkably similar, especially the headlights.
I really don't see why VW would be driving around in a production version of the Mk8 ahead of any major European car show...especially on a brand new body car. I still call shenanigans(or clickbait). I'm willing to bet when VW does finally does the actual release...it will look nothing like the frumpy cars in these pics.
Can anyone check that license plate to see what vehicle its registered to? I highly doubt they are driving around a production car with no camouflage pre-release. And if they were I doubt it would have a front plate
