I did not mean to say that there was an actual MSRP from VW.

Bear in mind that the 34 was never marketed in the States, so I'd be really
surprised to hear it *had* an MSRP. We might be talking about a special
import price, with related higher duties, etc. Almost all the cars that I
know of here came in via Canada or the grey market -- buy it in Europe,
drive it 10K clicks, and import it as a used car. Servicemen got additional
breaks. But yes, it was relatively expensive for its market target in
Europe, and depending on how you look at it VW seems to have backed away
from it even before it was released to market.
What bothers me a bit about this angle of discussion, and it comes up rather
frequently, is that poor sales of the 34 often seem to be taken as a
judgment of the car itself. To this I'll reply: drive one in good repair,
*then* tell me what you think about it.
