The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport R is a Class 7 desert racing car built for the 2020 edition of the Baja 1000. The Atlas was the first all wheel drive vehicle to be built for Class 7 category of the race.

The vehicle's tube-frame chassis was fabricated by Rhys Millen Motorsport, while the transmission is a Sadev 6-speed sequential transaxle. The engine is the same specification 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder used in Volkswagen's Beetle and Polo rallycross cars, but detuned to 480 bhp for an optimised balance of performance and reliability. VW stalwart Tanner Foust was the first driver announced for the program.[1][2]

While the Atlas was announced to debut in the 2020 Baja 1000, the car was absent from the race's entry list in November, and Volkswagen subsequently dissolved its motorsport division in December of the same year.[3]
