Why the Volkswagen Golf R 20 Years is a car for posers

It’s been twenty years since Volkswagen introduced the glorious Golf R32, so it’s time to party. They are doing the polonaise at the financial department in Wolfsburg, because this special edition will be sold for a nice extra price. And Golf R fans will be flagged as soon as they can buy the most powerful Golf of all time. The Volkswagen Golf R 20 Years has only become a poser’s car. And that’s because of this default option…

If you want a sporty Volkswagen Golf, you have two options. You can go for a Golf GTI with 245 hp, or you can pay 15,900 euros (!) more for a Golf R with 320 hp. Because yes, a fast Golf was once a sports car killer for the common man (or woman), but now you have to be reasonably wealthy to be able to afford one. The GTI costs at least 53,390 euros. For an R you have lost at least 69,290 euros. Oof!

Volkswagen Golf R 20 Years with 13 hp more

The price of the limited Volkswagen Golf R 20 Years is not yet known, but it will undoubtedly be well above that. But then you get the strongest Wave ever put on the public road. The 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder has been increased from 320 to 333 hp for the occasion. We don’t know yet what that does to performance. Count on a 0-100 km/h sprint that is under 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h (or more).

The ‘Emotional Start’ is there for the posers

The 20 Years will receive the R-Performance package as standard: containing 19-inch wheels, a hefty roof spoiler and a drift mode. It is interesting that Volkswagen has not finished with a jantje-van-leid. The turbo and DSG transmission of the R have been tinkered with for more experience and a faster kickdown. In addition, the 20 Years has an ‘Emotional Start’. That is a somewhat affected feature, which whips the engine up to 2500 rpm when you start the car. Just to make some noise.
