An even more powerful Volkswagen Golf R soon?

While it has barely been marketed, the new Volkswagen Golf R is already fueling fantasies. New rumors speak of a next station wagon variant and even more powerful versions up to 408 horsepower.

The most powerful golf course in history with 320 horsepower under the hood, the new R already has a beautiful pedigree. However, Volkswagen would be determined to expand the range of the sporty compact sedan a little more by adding 3 new versions.

The first of them would logically be the Variant station wagon version, a prototype of which has already been seen in the testing phase on the north loop of the N├╝rburgring. The family Golf R will logically take the same technical basis as the 5-door, namely the TSI 4-cylinder with 320 hp and 420 Nm of torque associated with the DSG 7-speed double-clutch gearbox and 4Motion all-wheel drive. Thus rigged, it could shoot down from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 5 seconds. Not bad for a break!

Up to 408 horsepower under the hood?

Even more enticing, the Golf R 5-door could be available in two even more powerful versions: the 333-hp R + whose debut would be imminent as well as a much more extreme variant called the R400 and probably planned for the mid-career restyling of the 8th generation of the German compact.

With a power of 408 horsepower, the R400 should not give in to the sirens of electricity by adopting Plug-In Hybrid propulsion. This gives us hope that it will take over the 5-cylinder 2.5 TSI from the Audi TT RS, RS3 and the most recent Cupra Formentor VZ5.
