This is "Jesse's Jetta" from the 2001 hit movie The Fast and the Furious starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Rick Yune, Chad Lindberg, Ja Rule. This car runs and drives and was actually used in various scenes in the movie, most notably the drive-by shooting in front of Vin Diesel's house. This vehicle has previously been on display at Universal Studio's next to the Dodge Charger. This car is listed as the bullet hit car #1. In the film, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) loses a race to Asian gang leader Johnny Tran for pink slips, but he bolts. Finally he turns up at Vin Diesel's house in the Jetta, and as he steps out, Tran shows up with a machinegun, murders Jesse, spraying the car in the process, and speeds off on a motorcycle. This precipitates the final chase, crash and escape in the film. I have included links to video clips from the movie where you can see the imitation sparco racing seats and the large brake rotors without any calipers.
