What does VW VR6 stand for?

In German, as in English, the V indicates an angle between two cylinder banks. Whereas we’d call a straight six an I-6, the Germans call it an R-6, with R standing for Reihenmotor. VW simply combined the two terms, resulting in the name VR6, which, loosely translated, means in-line V-6.
