Default VW Golf R Wagon Prototype Spotted at the Ring Sporting Quad Exhausts


Quote:
The VW Golf R estate prototype we featured more than a month ago seems to not necessarily have shown the final production form of the car. That silver car had other wheels and a different looking exhaust, while this new black one comes with a quad-pipe setup at the back.

The uploader of the video posted below, YouTube user TouriClips, suggests the mods may be a sign of it receiving a more powerful engine, which itd need to show off on the outside too, to justify the predictable premium it would carry over the basic R.

Whichever the case, we see nothing wrong with a blacked out VW estate with all-wheel drive, a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with over 300 hp and huge wheels that look like they have a thin coating of rubber where the tires should be

Default Production VW Golf R 400 Reportedly Coming Next Year

Click the image to open in full size.

Quote:
We knew for a while that the mad, 400PS (395HP) Golf R 400 concept from last April's Beijing Auto Show, would at some point spawn a production version.

How come? Because VW R&D boss Heinz-Jakob Neusser had said so, thats why. Its not unusual for car companies to change their minds, though, especially when it comes to wild concepts, and axe them due to one reason or another.

The Golf R 400, according to a CAR magazine report, has definitely been green-lighted by the powers-that-be in Wolfsburg and the production version will be unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, with sales beginning before the end of the year.

Unlike previous reports, though, the British publication claims its sources insist that the R 400 will be a regular variant in the Golf line-up and not a limited series model.

Thus, despite the fact that the 2.0-liter turbocharged EA888 four-cylinder is pumping out a mind-blowing, for a hot hatch, 400PS, the uber Golf will roll down the same production line as its lessen brethren. It goes without saying that major components such as the suspension or the brakes will be beefed up in order to handle the power.

VW hasnt officially confirmed the launch of the R 400, much less its specifications. However, like the concept it will be transmitting its power to all four wheels through a six-speed dual clutch DSG gearbox for a supercar rivaling 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph).

Default VW Prices 292HP Golf R from $36,595* in the US; No Manual Gearbox

I dont know whether this will help you get over the disappointment of VW not bringing the Golf R Variant to the United States, but the automaker has just announced pricing for the Golf R hatchback.

The first batch of 500 Golf R models can be pre-ordered, with prices starting from $36,595 (plus $820 destination). With 292hp from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the VW Golf R is the fastest and most powerful Golf ever to be sold in the United States.

Mated to a standard six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission, the engine allows the Golf R to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds, with top speed rated at 155 mph (250 km/h).

Compared to the previous model, the new VW Golf R has 36 horsepower and 37 pound-feet (50 Nm) of torque more. However, it is considerably more fuel-efficient, with an EPA estimated highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg (7.8 l/100 km) with the six-speed DSG transmission, up from 27 mpg (8.7 l/100 km) for the previous, manual-transmission model.

The Golf R has a permanent four-wheel drive system, the latest version of the 4Motion system with a fifth-generation Haldex coupling. The car also features a new sport suspension, progressive variable-ratio steering, and a stability control system (ESC Sport) which can be deactivated for track driving. Other highlights include the optional DCC adaptive damping system.

Standard equipment includes Bi-Xenon headlights with newly designed LED daytime running lights and four chrome exhaust tips. Inside, the Golf R features sport seats with leather seating surfaces, a leather-wrapped three-spoke sport steering wheel, ambient lighting, R-specific instrumentation, 5.8-inch touchscreen radio with SiriusXM Satellite radio, ambient lighting, Media Device Interface (MDI) with iPhone connectivity and Climatronic dual-zone automatic air conditioning, among other things.

The VW Golf R will arrive in U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of 2015 in four-door form only and initially will be available only with the DSG transmission.
