The new one-off Volkswagen Golf R 400 has recently made its public debut at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
Originally teased just a few days ago, the new Volkswagen Golf R 400 Concept has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. The model in question is based on the new Golf R generation and it will remain a simple concept car, despite its impressive performance. And when we’re talking about performance, we mean to say 100 HP (73 kW) and 70 Nm (51 lb-ft) of torque more than the production version of the Golf 7 R.
The Volkswagen Golf R 400 has a total output of 400 HP (294 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, squeezed from the 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder engine, which has received a modified turbocharger and some other tweaks. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint is made in a supercar time of 3.9 seconds and top speed stands at 280 km/h (174 mph). The one-off vehicle weighs 1,420 kg (3,130 lbs) and it’s riding on 19-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 235/35 tires.
Volkswagen has upgraded the interior of the Golf R 400 Concept with the motorsport shell seats with built-in head restraints, which have been wrapped in Alcantara and carbon leather. Contrast stitching has a yellow shade. More details on the German based carmaker’s one-off model are limited for the moment, but expect it in a future automotive event, most likely in Europe.
